I have decided to buy a slider due to the amount of sheets good I now cut. My Sawstop has been a wonderful saw with no issues. I just do not have room for both and my dado saw, so this one needs to go. I can add pics later or send them via email or text. Its in great shape and has the mobile base also.
Feel free to email, text, or call… here is my info. Email is pjswoodshop at yahoo.com and number is 979 nine six six 3831.
Im in LaGrange… between Austin and Houston.

I might be missing something, but why not just buy and install the slider attachment for your current saw?

I am not a candidate, although I drive through your city, to and from ATX, fairly often. If you give us a price, I will tell a friend that I know wants to upgrade his table saw.

Good luck!

A cabinet saw with a slider attachment is not nearly the same as a purpose-built machine. I’m selling off my Altendorf F-90 on eBay right now to make room for a new CNC router coming in this week. The Altendorf has a 7.5HP motor for fast, all-day cutting and over an 8-foot stroke with a large supporting table to make handling 4×8 sheet goods easy. The Marc Adams School has a Jet with a slider attachment and while it’s nice, it’s just not the same thing. The table is smaller and it doesn’t have an 8-foot stroke. It’s more of a cross-cutting machine.

That table is not as heavy duty as I want. And I want the ability to slide a full 8’ sheet on the sled.
I’m cutting 40-60 sheets a week so this should make things easier.

I have the 5hp ics and was looking at the felder slider when I bought. They are two diff animals. There are things that make the slider better in some cases and in others I prefer the ICS. Don’t regret the decision.

As to selling to break down sheet goods, I’m not to sure of. Seems like a vertical panel saw is in order and id will take up a lot less room.

Just saw that I never posted a price and I looked over one of the posts in this thread. I’m sorry. I’m asking $2500 OBO. I’m open to offers since I do not know how to price this.

For me I think the European slider is going to be my best move… for what I mainly do. I know I’ll miss the Sawstop, but looking forward to a true slider.

That all makes sense. A tool made for the job would certainly seem to be better than a tool updated/changed to do the job. I’m glad I asked.

^^^ No problem asking. I think it will be the best move for me in my shop. I feel i had more room id keep both. But there is already another small table saw. So it will stay along with the new slider that’s coming.

This is one of the those times that the follow up poster learns a new way of thinking of something a little different than they started with. That’s one thing I really like about this site. Sometimes a post and its responses get out of hand when people can’t imagine the other poster is more right than them, but for the most part we all learn something.

Let us know how this all shakes out for you.
