I gave into the urge and went ahead and bought the 300.00 4511. I know TS deals come along a lot on CL here in San Antonio. We are getting ready to set up a 60 by 40 and then I likely will run 3 TS in the shop. Figured this could suffice as one of the 3 saws. I figured we would at least have 2 saws running.
So at this time we are just in our small 2 car garage. We run a TS 3650 that serves us well. I just put a nice Delta blade on it and it cuts and just humms nice, could not hardly ask for much more except for dust collection on the 3650. So we will keep the 4511 in the box and wait to unpack it. It is tempting to unpack but we just do not have the room right now with the 3650 in the garage. Of course maybe I could find a way to fit it somewhere??? I still hope to swing one of those great deals on a Unisaw or Powermatic on CL some day, just not sure if we really need all of the power of a 3 hp or 5 hp cabinet saw. We rarely stretch the limits of our 3650 (even when building 8/4 maple/walnut cutting boards).
I have been researching a lot of info on the 4511. Any info or advice would be welcome.
