”...They are not powermatics or delta Rockwell but they are better than grizzly and maybe just a bit more expensive than grizzly….”

Gotta be careful with the name game. In many cases, Jet and Grizzly roll off the same factory lines. There are plenty of exceptions, but many cases when they’re essentially the same. Better to evaluate each tool on it’s own merits than to make an assumption about an entire brand.

The original Jet Proshop 708480 series got solid reviews, but they’ve recently changed it to accommodate a riving knife (708490 series), so it’s likely a little different design. $1200 is a lot for a hybrid, but if you get it from a dealer you’ll at least get support. Are you restricted to 120v?
