    I wish they'd offer the tried and true cast iron too. I'm sure the granite can workout ok, but I'd much rather have a known entity. I'd hazard a guess that a CI top could be retrofitted to the R4511 though....the trunnion structure is cabinet mounted and is recessed below the lip of the cabinet.

      Sounds like a Steel City product might be in your future to me.

      Isn't their CI toppped TS pretty much like the 4511 not counting the table top of course.

        I do alot of kitchen cabinet installs, many with granite tops.
        Ive seen alot of chips, they 'can' be filled with an epoxy resin.
        If its in the top of the 'top' ! an edge possibly , if its not too bad.
        the T track, might be an issue !
        If it were broken due to something falling/dropped on it, that would
        be sad.!

        I went for the cast iron top myself!
        a. it was readily available (2miles from the house)
        b. the sale price couldnt be beat.
        c. the rip capacity beat out delta + haveing to buy an additional rip fence.
        d. it was a cool orange color.
        e. I liked it better than "ALL" the rest Ive ever used in the past.
        And all the ones I looked at while shopping for a Table Saw.
        f. I too am in HD alot and the guys there know me on sight.
        sometimes Ive been asked a technical question if they didnt know the answer "cause they know me."
        when I bought my saw TWO guys that both work the tools section
        took my saw outside for me. AND helped me load it into my van.

        I do spend alot of money there.
        I asked them about the granit top saw and when it would be in.
        Uhhh........ what granite top saw ! lol

        anyway ..cheers
