I believe the Ridgid saws are actually the same as the old craftsman made by Emerson Home Depot bought Emerson and changed the name to Ridgid. If you can get one that will run 220v. I had a radial arm saw that would stall cutting anything over a 2x4. I converted it to 220v and then I could cut 2x12's all day and it wouldn't even slow down it was actually scary. a electrical eng friend told me that it doubles the torque as it is hitting from two phase angles when I got my table saw I got the 2hp motor that I converted to 220v. As far as fences I bought a Bought a INCRA TS and love it for both the saw and enclosed router table. I built a work station with 24" Stockroom Sander on left Table Saw center and enclosed Router cabinet Right with the Incra fence covers it all.
