I finally bought it….. I have been planning to buy a table saw, but wasn’t planning to buy one right now. But, with the current promotion going on at Home Depot, it seemed like it’s a good time. HD is offering $75 off for purchases upto $599 and $150 off for purchases of $600 and above. Coincidence or not, the saw is listed as $599, but if you add anything power tool related (as long as it is at least $1), the price of the saw comes down to $449. So, I bought a pair of drill bits for $1.79.
The saw won’t be here until wednesday. Will be fun to set it up and try it out; I never really had a chance to work with a saw of this magnitude.
I had been planning to buy the Steel City’s 35930, with the higher end rip fence. But, spending an 1000 dollars for a table saw was not something I could justify. The alternative was the 35920, with the standard fence. But, reading many posts, especially Purplev’s, made it evident that the R4511 and the 35920 are nearly identical. So, at that point, a $200 price difference (after the $150 discount) favored the R4511.
Thought I share that with you. For those who have been in the same boat – almost ready to buy this saw, the sale at Home Depot is till the 16th Sept.
