    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.
      "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
      John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

        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
