most cuts are end cuts on dimensioned lumber. My DeWatt is already about 37 years old and can set the fence back 25" for handling rip cuts on 4 by 8 foot panels. I set the guard about 1/16" above the wood and hook a shop vacuum to the guard nozzle, so the bath of saw dust isn't too bad. Still good to wear safety goggles and a mask. Ripping is the big advantage of a table saw, much cleaner, but awkward when doing a miter cut on a 16' long piece of molding. Love my saw and the old DeWatts are heavy cast iron, not this new sheet metal stuff. Can still find them on ebay, I had to repair the blade brake on mine, but that was the only problem I ever had with it in 36 years.
