I would love to have the shop space to try and fit one of these saws into it. But you are right that is some slider.

It has dual saw blades. The second smaller blade runs opposite the main blade.
If I had that, I would just sleep in the garage ;-)

I was in a shop just this past week that had an Altendorf F45, he paid $25,000 for it a year ago new. The owner was showing me some of the features and it is truly an amazing piece of machinery. All the blade adjustments are done through the push of a button and a motor tilts and raises the blade and adjusts a tilted blade to compensate for height. Add a pneumatic lift for handling large sheet goods and a person can crank some lumber through that machine. Jei had it right, it is the lamborghini of table saws

Router—-Those saws are fantastic for a lot of things, especially for sheet goods. I actually have an SCMI for sale right now. It’s not as fancy as those you showed, but the price is only $4,000. It will rip 8’ with the sliding table. Houston is not that far from Lubbock if you’re interested.

Thanks Kent,
I’m afraid I’m just a Pinto kind of guy and not a Lamborghini. If I didn’t have a contractor saw to bitch about it’s lousy design and shortcomings and realign once or twice a week, I’d go crazy ;-)

Sure cutting a sheet of plywood or huge plank is easy with a $100,000 machine but it takes a real craftsman to do the same tasks on an 8 1/4” makita tablesaw on a set of saw horses in someone’s front yard. Bunch of namby pamby woosies!

Loved the Altendorf ripping the timber made it look easy

we have 5 altendorf where i work (all over 20 years old) 4 can cut a full sheet 8×4 shhet and the fith 1 can cut a 12 ft sheet

Makes life easy but those automated saws would be even easier still

I’d be happy to just be able to run 8ft lengths in any direction in my shop!
