This guy is selling a Rigid table saw with a cracked granite top, he is
throwing in a solid core door saying it would make a better table top.
Can you believe that?

That saw took a tumble, if not benchtop abuse.
In the first pic, the switch box is bent.
In the 3rd pic, 2 legs of the stand are bent.
In the second pic of the door, the saw stand leg, on the left, is bent.
Considering his concept of the door being an appropriate fix, I wonder what "sufficient enough" factors he uses for building the projects he works on?

A little Guh-rilla guh-lue and it'll be good as gnu...
I always was (and continue to be) a more than a little leery of granite
as an ideal material for the purpose--it is brittle albeit a good
dampener and doesn't rust.
And it won't allow magnetic attachments.
I use a magnetic feather board at times (grip tite),
And a dial indicator now for my fence. so it does eliminate that ability.
On the other hand, if I lived in a very humid area, or a very cold area,
it might be nice to not have to worry about the top rusting.
But I would really miss the magnetic top.
Not to mention having to be extra careful with it and pretty much being
locked in to using Ridgid products as upgrades. If yo need to drill
that table for a different fence system you are pretty much out of luck.
That saw has seen some serious abuse. I've got a Rigid table saw that's
been around for a long time, and seen plenty of service, not always kind
service, and I couldn't imagine breaking the table like that.
