New in the box but sitting around for several years is not
the same as new with a warranty.

Table saws are relatively simple machines and it takes real
abuse or very heavy long term use to break them. The
parts that do go out now and then are the electrics.

For this reason, used bargains in nicely made saws can be
found as long as one doesn’t calculate the purchase price
as if the motor is expected to last for the life of the saw.
New motors are costly, which is why I keep an eye peeled
for used ones in the amp range I may need one in.

I would pass on the Jet and look for a second-hand Unisaw
or other cabinet saw.
