I think I’ve narrowed down my search and will be buying a PCS 1.75hp. I am really leaning towards the 30” premium fence assembly, but was hoping for some buying advice from anyone who has compared and/or used both fence options (“premium” which is the basic fence on the PCS 1.75, and “Pro T-Glide” which would be an upgrade on the PCS1.75).
I won’t be able to see the fences in a showroom for another couple weeks, but I am afraid that when I do I will splurge for the T-Glide upgrade and leave with lighter pockets when I may be just as satisfied with the base model premium fence.
I am only a hobbyist and although I have a lot of plans to build cabinets and furniture along with small stuff, I don’t see myself really needing more than 30” of ripping capacity. And if I ever do, I think I could find a way around the saws 30” rip limitation.
So with the rip capacity out of the way (I think), it really boils down to the quality, accuracy, and feel of the two fences.
Is the T-Glide worth the extra $180 and loss of 6” of shop space?
