Thanks for checking. The color isn't even a minor thing to me--I support all colors, clear, gold, red, might have some blue, so why not black--although I would have waited a while for clear...

Bobby,

If you are talking weight of the saw at the center of a span, then there should be no worries for your 54" piece for typical saws, probably including 10"ers. That would include being in the...

I have a 60" piece that is perfect, to me, for cross cutting 48" sheet. As you say, it has plenty of room for resting the saw completely on track (the base may hang off a bit, but the saw itself is...
