Was at a recent WW show here in SoCal. Some really good buys, by the way. Happened to run my hand over the left extension on a Unisaw. The table thickness and ribs underneath seemed to be paper thin. Well, maybe not paper thin, but awful thin compared to my 6 year old PM-66.
I’ve seen the price come down on Unisaws and other major power tools over the past few years. Are the manufacturers saving some money by going with less “beefy” components?
I went to a couple of my tool mags to find the listed weight on the latest Unisaw models and couldn’t find it anywhere. They used to list this, and if I remember right, it was about 450 lbs. Has this changed?
