The top can be removed from a cabinet saw fairly easily….4 bolts. Note the location of any shims between the top and cabinet, and replace them in the same location.

Hey do you like
Depending on your budget I always recommend Saw stop but its spendy the newest 3hp model is around $3000 If that’s beyond your budget take a look at grizzly saws.
