The great guys over at Popular Woodworking found what’s probably the “next big thing” in table saws: granite tops. According to PW, a company called Steel City Tool Works will unveil a 10″ table saw later this year that incorporates a 150-pound, 2″-thick slab of granite as a table top.
Strange as it sounds, it does offer some advantages — specifically that it’s flat to within a couple thousandths of an ince, and it’ll never rust or warp. And according to PW, it’s not even going to be that expensive. Try $1,049 for a 1-3/4 hp model.
The saw isn’t on Steel City’s website yet, but the PW blog post is loaded with pictures, so we linked it below.
