Topic tags/keywords: question tablesaw sliding saw blade tilt

Unlike traditional table saws, which could be right or left tilting, sliding saws seem to always be right tilting with table on the left. I understand the rationale of this arrangement, but are there exceptions from this rule? Namely, left tilt with slider on the left.
Thank you.

Interesting question. Mine is a right tilt too but I don’t see why it couldn’t be a lefty.

Only in non-format style sliders that put substantial iron on both sides
of the blade.
