My first saw was the 3650 which is essentially identical to your saw. It was a good saw and I only got rid of it because I found a used unisaw for cheap.

You should buy a featherboard for safer cuts. I use a Grip-tite magnetic featherboard for almost every cut and I highly recommend it.

I would definitely make sure you have a good saw blade. If you go with a thin kerf blade make sure you buy some blade stiffeners to go with it. Otherwise buy a full kerf blade. I would recommend saw blades from Forrest or Tenryu Gold Series. These will be relatively expensive. Expect to pay 100+ per saw blade. But if you get lousy cuts, what was the point?

The mobile base on this saw is still my favorite of any tool I have ever owned.
