r4512 for these reasons:

1. the moving parts are fully enclosed inside.

2. riving knife.

3. 90 day satisfaction guaranty .

4. 3 year guaranty.

5. lifetime service agreement eligible.

6. integrated mobile base.

7. dual voltage 1.5hp TEFC induction motor.

additionally, the fence rails can be slid to the right for increased rip capacity beyond the 30” capacity. the tape on the front rail would be useless, but that’s a small price to pay for 36”-40” of rip capavity.

it’s no unisaw, but if you can find a HD that honors the harbor freight “20% off any single item coupon”, it can be had for $400 plus tax. even if you want to upgrade in the future, the investment in the 4512 is reasonable enough that it could be used as an outfeed table for a 2 saw set up. a larger cabinet saw could be the rip saw and the 4512, placed perpendicular to the outfeed side of the cabinet saw, could be set up for crosscuts and dadoes like this.

-- there's a solution to every just have to be willing to find it.
