First, an apology to the thousands of LJ member for whom this question seem an obscure request …
I’ll be the new owner of an N4400, this January. I’ve read conflicting (to put it mildly) reports on the following:
Blade Guides – Felder seems to have irritated many N4400 owners with their choice of guides; and I’m wondering if it is a foregone conclusion that I’ll need to upgrade to Carter guides?
Blade Width – simple question – can the N4400 properly tension a 1” Lenox/Starrett blade; or am I limited to 3/4”?
Blade Choice – this is like asking knowledgeable professions their favorite brew – from the ridiculous to the sublime. Let’s say that I’m narrowing my selection to Timberwolf, Lenox, and Starrett; knowing that I’m offending many faithful.
Most preferred add-on: my choice is extension tables for ripping; or perhaps an upgraded fence.
Again, LJ is a great Forum, and I welcome informed responses.
