I owned a 3 HP blue Jet cabinet saw for almost 10 years, I sold it about 3 years ago not because I didn’t like it, I just wanted to own a Unisaw.

I always thought the Jet was a quality saw and it served me well. I think I sold it for around $800.00. I did find the blade guard to be labor intensive to install and remove and so it spent most of the time sitting on the shelf.I never thought much about it untill I started using the Unisaw and found the blade guard, riving knife assembly so quick and easy to remove and install (no tools required).The miter gage on the Jet did not fit the slot as tight as I would have wanted so I upgraded to a Incra.

Based on my experience if I were looking for another saw a top priority would be a user friendly blade guard/riving knife.
