  • Picking up my 4511 on Friday

    I have just recently found this forum site and I'm glad I did. It has been a plethora of information. I have been shopping for a TS for months now trynig to find the most bang for my buck and was leaning toward a 3660 (not knowing they have been replaced with the 4511) but after reading the many people on here seeming very satisfied with the 4511 I decided to make the purchase today $499.00/$533 after taxes. This is not as good as some of the deals I read on here but it's still not a bad price for a saw like this.
    I would like to know from the many of you on here that has owned a 4511 for a while now if you regret the granite top? I live in the south and rusting is a big problem down here in this humidity. I hope the granite lives up to the hype.

      Congrats on the purchase! I have owned a 4511 for about 9 months and I have ran about 1000 board feet through it. All I can say is I love this saw! I have a friend who has a 3650 and when I compare the 2 saws, I am not sure if it because the 4511 is cabinet mounted or the extra weight of the granite, but the 4511 has way less vibration.

      As far as the granite, I have no chips, cracks and it definately will not rust
      I am more delicate with it than I woul be with a cast iron top, but with a little thought before slamming tools on it or using it like a work bench, then you should not have any problems.

      When you get it and set it up, there is a pdf floating around here that has some great info for tips to make it go together easier.
