I was wondering what the depth of the saw is from the very back to the very front edge. I am trying to see how far the machine will stick out from the wall when push up tight to the wall when just storing it. Thanks for any help.

Well, Google is your friend.

I found another forum where the same question was asked, and an owner said his measures 31” from front to rear including the rails.

31 1/8 inches rail-to-rail, about 32 inches to clear the switch, and 37 inches if you leave the fence on the rails. Had a similar issue with dimensions.

-- Now, where did I put those bandaids?

Thanks guys. I did do the google thing but wanted to double check. The 4511 would be a nicer dimension but not sure about the granite after reading the fears in the various forums but rumour has it that they are dropping the granite for a cast iron so time will tell. Thanks again and now it’s decision time – t4511 or ts3650or wait. hmmmm

FWIW, I pulled the trigger on an R4511 a month or two ago and I couldn’t be happier. I used a Harbor Freight 20% off coupon and got the saw and a planer for less than $750.
