I work with a trade show company which is expanding. New shop means new/used upgraded TS. They want to go with a
industrial sliding unit and I said Id help.
I could use some direction from anyone who uses or knows proven models that will go the distance.
thanks in advance

The Altendorf would be a good one. I’ve got a very old model and Stiles is still willing to send techs out for service and parts if necessary. Haven’t called them in yet since the slider is a luxury for me and I haven’t put the time into getting it setup yet (bought it used).

During my research though, it seems many people consider Altendorf to be one of the best out there.

Here’s an F-45 up for auction: 2002 Altendorf F-45

I believe it has a tilting arbor and adjustable angle fence. My F-90 is for straight, 90-degree cuts only.

Are you wanting a vertical or horizontal panel saw? What’s your use and budget. These saws can go from 1500 dollars to 50 thousand and more. How heavily is it going to be use and how many different people will use it?

I have a Felder Slider bought in 1999, would love to have an Altendorf. If I had an Altendorf such as yours there is no way in hell I wouldn’t find time to set it up.
