I have a Steel City 35990 and I’m extremely happy with it. I watched Craigslist for a used saw and there just wasn’t anything available in my price range and I ran out of time. DO NOT buy the Steel City saw at Home Depot unless they’ll honor Steel City’s price flyer. When I bought mine, HD wanted almost $400 more for the saw than what Steel City was selling it for. I picked mine up at a local distributor for the flyer price.

CABINET MOUNTED TRUNIONS: you want them. Alignment is hugely easier with them. I know first-hand after aligning an R4512 before taking it back due to OTHER alignment issues that were not resolvable and then getting the 35990 and aligning that in less than 1/10 the time. BIG difference.
