Thanks for the info. Since the TS3650 is no more, could this be a good source for repair parts?

It looks like a nice saw, too bad they didn’t re-engineer it to have a riving knife rather than a simple splitter.

I recently ordered a repair part for the fence that I broke for this saw from “repair Parts”and received it in short order. This was my first problem with this saw I have used daily for almost seven years.

Just had confirmation from Busy Bee Tools that anyone with a TS3650 can get replacement parts through them.

I’ve got the 3660. Thanks for the post. It’s great to see the saw still kicking.

actually, i don’t think so. i believe the 3650 tables have 4 mounting holes and the 4512 has 3 mounting holes.
