so i checked out an ad on craigslist for wood working tools low and behold the guy had some very good equipment for sale due to his dads estate sale. fortunately for me his son had no clue how to use the stuff . what a walked away with was 300 for a jet contractors saw, mobile base, delta tennion jig, freud dado set and another 15 or so table saw blades . if that wasn enough of a deal all his dads wood stock was for sale too i tried having him include it in the price of the saw but no dice i suppose it was on principal but then again i got my money’s worth on that purchase after all he only wanted 20 dollars for all the stock check out the pictures. if i had wanted the wood for firewood alone it would have been worth the 20 $ easily ! anyways check it out. ps anybody know the downfalls of the jet contractors table saw besides the fence ?

Congratulations! I used to have the same saw and it was perfectly aligned when I bought it and worked great the entire time I used it. The fence was a little flimsy so I replaced it with a delta t-square style fence (biesemeyer clone). $20 for any stack of hardwood is hard to pass up.

Mike,

The Delta T2 is on sale at tools-plus.com for $142.00. It is a 30” fence and takes a whole of 15 minutes to install and a couple of cuts you will have it dialed in.

Id like to ad that when going through all the wood i found more than a few kids puzzles like for a grandkid or like charity drives or something like that . The coolest part of that is that it was like someones love or someones dreams in your hand …..
