The 22114 has a lesser fence than the Jet, but it does have cabinet mounted trunnions. Neither has a riving knife. I’d go with the Jet over the 22114, but both are slightly outdated compared to a few other offerings.

In that price range I’d also prefer either the Grizzly G0715P, Grizzly G0661, or possibly the Steel City 35990C with money left over for a possible fence upgrade.

If you can look past the nameplate at the saw itself, the Craftsman 22116 granite top hybrid made by Steel City’s Orion subsidiary has replaced the venerable 22124 (also by Orion), and is also a viable choice…cabinet mounted trunnions, riving knife, one piece cast arbor carriage, steel t-square Biese style fence, granite top, and goes on sale in the low $700’s if you’re patient.
