I have the SS contractor saw. I bought it this spring. I replaced a craftsman 113 with a T2 fence. Best decision I made. Easy to set up and adjust. I would recommend getting the 30” T glide fence rather than the stock one. I was used to the T2 fence. The stock sawstop fence while an OK fence,it can be locked down slightly out of square. You need watch and press the base of the fence toward the saw before locking it down each time. I did by the 220 controller and converted it to 220V. I would like to have a cabinet saw but this does everything I need done and does it well wo I can’t justify the extra money. The internal parts are the same.
