Well, I bit the bullet, and went and picked up the best Table saw Harbor Freight had to offer…..top of the line. Just kidding.
After some extensive research, some deep soul searching, and some pretty smooth talking to the wife, I went and got the Delta 36-725. Hope all the advice I picked up on this forum pays off. Now it’s going to take all the mechanical prowess I can muster to get it all together and zeroed in correctly. I let you know the outcome.

Well, I managed to get it together, and calibrated the closest I can get it, and so far I feel I made a good purchase. My riving blade was off a little, but followed the manual and had no problems. I even made my first jig for it!!!

Interesting fence…is that the latest incarnation of the UniFence? Delta owned that and also owned the Beis…yours looks like a marriage!

No, it’s a split rail version of the Delta T2/T3 fence.

Congrats on the new saw. Be sure to get a decent blade (they start at ~ $30) ...stock blades are notoriously mediocre, so save it for junk cuts.

Been awhile since I shopped table saws because my old Delta contractor works just fine. Looks like the UniFence rail…with the old fence duplicated on the other side of what I knew as the Beis. Looks sweet!

Welcome to the club, and the site. I am one of the fellow 36-725 owners on here and love that saw. Have had it about a year and a half now and couldn’t be happier with it
