Yeah, I like the older JET too (I’m a JET guy in general). The new one has reasonably decent reviews but I’m like you, it just doesn’t do it for me. You can buy the actual fence designed for the 20 incher but it’s very expensive, like twice the kreg. The Carter conversion is going to hurt ($$) but I’d like to know that I can resaw adequately with the current motor before I drop the coin on fancy guides.

I tapped my JET arms to accept wing extensions. I wasn’t happy about it but it really wasn’t that big of a deal. If I ruin my bandsaw table, that would give me an excuse to order a bigger one, lol. It looks like some aftermarket fences come with an elongated L-bracket that the fence mounts to. I think that should give me the flexibility that I need.

Here’s the JET fence we’re talking about:

Here’s the woodhaven, looks OK:

Here’s the magswitch resaw (very clever):

Here’s the resaw attachment for the Kreg I’m looking at:
