FWIW few if any "new" 10" cabinet saws have cast iron right side extension tables for the 50"+ rip capacity.

This seems to contradict what they are telling you. Amazon/sold by Woodcraft shows a mark down from $2719 to $2469.

I know that. But the SS has a short extension table made of something much lighter than cast iron before the extension table. The Professional edition is available in 30" and 36" (and 52"). It's probably just that 6" of the table between 30" and 36". It was pointed out to me that it is available in cast iron.

That is a 1 3/4 HP version. This one looks closer:

Regardless, Woodcraft through Amazon is reducing their price, contrary to what the guy at Woodcraft told you.

Yes, thank you for pointing that out. The last time I checked (a long time ago), SawStopo saws were not listed on Amazon.

Maybe the idea of having a short cast iron extension table is to mount a router on it? Do you suppose they come pre-cut/drilled?

I think a router table is a short table wouldn't be what I wanted but to each their own. Keep in mind Bill if you go over budget and it hurts a little it's much better then not getting what ;you need and having to do it again.

Not cast iron ones, at least not that I've ever seen or heard of. However, I have drilled/jig sawed out a heavy cast iron table saw extension before for use with a router. Along with using a heavy flexible cut off wheel in a drill to grind away part of the extension ribs underneath, the whole process took a little over an hour. Not difficult, just a little tedious.
Is an hour of your time and $1 for a cutoff sanding wheel worth your effort if you have a cast iron table saw extension?

While I haven't seen a cast iron extension set up for a router as original equipment (except on the 3K Powermatic), they're certainly available aftermarket. For example:

For 350 clams, I can stand, nay, _prefer_, melamine-coated termite barf.
Or for an entire prefab table, try this at half the price: http://www.grizzly.com/products/Router-Table-with-Stand/T10432 Mod it to fit your TS if necessary, but a separate table is nice if you want to leave the fences intact each time. The TS fence is less useful, anyway, since it isn't 2-piece.

Fence and guards to be complete and adequate. I've never seen a table saw top too unflat to be useful (but cast iron with a crack, I HAVE seen). And don't check for alignment, you will have to set up and realign completely regardless, after moving the machine into your work area.
