Any suggestions on where to look for info on sliding table saws. I am looking on behalf of a community college. An Altendorf would be nice, but I think it is out of our price range. Any Suggestions would be welcome.
Sliding Table saws are expensive. Almost all are made in Europe and have to be inported. I have just seen the units below at a wood show and was impressed. But I know that there are others out there. Hope others give you input.

I've been using a BT3000 (Ryobi) for the last several years; it has a small (but delicate,) sliding miter table. Because it required constant retuning for accuracy, and because of its single crank for height and angle, I finally threw in the towel and bought a new saw.
I purchased the DeWalt 744 "K" package. It includes a fairly substantial sliding table, with an accurate mitering device included. Since it's all (very) heavy duty, I would recommend it for your consideration in a school setting.

I bought a Grizzley 1023S and also ordered their sliding table. I've had it about a month and so far I'm very happy with it. Good Luck, Chuck
