Decent saw, solid cast wings, good fence, router table. It doesn’t have a riving knife, and is an older style saw with an outboard motor and connecting rods. The Xacta fence is a pretty good, but they replaced it with the Xacta II…. I can’t recall the specific complaints about it, but you could Google it. $475 is bit high IMO…..$350 to $400 would make it a nice deal if it runs well.

This one has grated wings, no router table, and not quite as nice of a fence, but the fence is good and at half the price of the Jet is a better bang for the buck IMO.
