Titanium-top tablesaw proves its mettle against rust

Review Summary

I live in Iowa, where summers are hot, sticky, and dripping with humidity. So I find the titanium-nitrite-coated cast-iron top on Steel City’s 3-hp cabinet-style tablesaw to be a huge advantage in my ongoing battle with rust. To see how the rust-resistant tabletop compares with untreated cast iron, I moved this saw next to a new 8" jointer. Both got through the winter in fine shape, but when spring arrived, I began to see rust on the jointer—and nothing on the saw.
To accelerate testing, I spritzed water onto the tops of both, even making a few small puddles, then let them sit for 24 hours. The result: rust where the water had been. The rust spots on the titanium-nitrite top wiped away with a clean cloth. No such luck with the jointer; it took a special cleaner to remove its rust marks. This rust-inhibitive feature adds $250 to the price of Steel City’s regular cabinet saw (model 35618). Sure, that’s a lot of money, but to me, it’s worth the peace of mind knowing I don’t have to wax it regularly. With or without the titanium-nitrite top, the left-tilting model (35640) is a superb tablesaw. It’s also available in a right-tilt model (35630). With the heaviest and largest trunnions I’ve seen on a 10" saw, it’s built like a tank. The large handwheels turn easily and the stops are dead-on, with no need for adjustment. The Biesemeyer-style rip fence and rails prove durable, accurate, and easy to adjust. The throat plate has a red-paint finish that’s dry but sticky, and it slows down workpieces when I push them through the blade. I replaced it with a maple zero-clearance plate. (Scott Box of Steel City said future throat plates will be powder-coated to cut friction.) —Tested by Bob Hunter
