”Are you trying to tell us that the Ridgid R4511 is a better saw then the Delta 36-717 Hybrid ? I’d have to disagree. Buy the Delta 36-717 with the Biesemeyer fence. ”

Yes, in some ways….regardless of the name plate, none of these things are all good or all bad in absolute terms. There are pros and cons with most. The Delta hybrid has table mounted trunnions and connecting rods as an arbor carriage, which are less desirable to me than the cabinet mounted trunnions and cast arbor carriage of the R4512…..add the Biese fence to the R4511 and you’ve got a nice setup IMHO. Remove the “Delta” badge from the equation, and it’s really nothing special as early Asian hybrids go. Sounds like it’s moot point anyway, as the saw turns out not to be a hybrid.
