Dewalt DW745 Plastic Top?

You said the Dewalt table saw had a plastic top and I thought that was true too until I scratched the surface of mine today while resawing some reclaimed wood (had tiny flecks of concrete on it). Apparently its aluminum covered with plastic. Maybe I have a newer/older model?

Plastic coated sounds right. The advantage is that it prevents rusting/oxidation with that coating, but can scuff up easily and make an uneven surface which is not great. For a job-site saw, or cuts that don't have to be precise, this is an excellent choice!

Ah that makes sense. Thanks for the reply!
