- Granite tops are fine….but magnetic jigs won’t work. I REALLY like my magnetic featherboard… a deal breaker for me.

-The 22116 is a good, entry level cabinet saw. $450 sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

-Four years is a LONG time to wait. I’d probably ‘cry uncle’ and buy the Craftsman.

- I also have a 113.298762. I slapped a Delta T2 replacement fence on it, since the stock fence sucked so bad. I’m pretty happy with the combo. You might consider upgrading the fence if you decide to pass on the 22116.

- You’ll need a buddy (or two) to help you heave that saw into a truck. Be careful, granite is tough, but it doesn’t bend…...just breaks.
