All together a press solid table saw. I have been looking for a while and come across this one. He added a 30” fence rail ,had it dialed in extremely tight. feather boards galore ,push sticks, home aid router attachment ,and Two cross cut sleds..i still have my eye open for another one just because the 2HP is lacking power..or maybe I just need to break down and but a high dollar blade? Any thoughts or recommendations? All together I give it s B+ (image off google)

A Love/Hate Relationship

A Love/Hate Relationship

104 days ago by Lildrgnoflb01 | 11 comments »

Ahh spring! That time of year when a young man’s thoughts turn to one thing…and since this is not the forum for that topic…let’s talk tools. Officially, I think this silly little woodworking hobby of mine has morphed into a full blown obsession. In fact, if I ever sell my home, the listing will probably read “Beautiful, three bedroom, two bath home with a Five-tool garage”. While I haven’t reached the absolute low of selling myself for money to feed my tool addiction, I have taken the ...

Jet bandsaw motor replacement

Jet bandsaw motor replacement

1357 days ago by kayakguy | 11 comments »

This is not so much a review of my bandsaw, as a discussion of issues I had with the motor, and the struggle I went through replacing it. I had origionally posted this under ‘projects’, but some folks had suggested it really belonged under ‘reviews’. So here it is. While re-sawing some 10” wide Walnut boards, I managed to blow out the motor on my bandsaw. The local repair shop could not fix it (they claimed it was a cheap motor, and not repairable). Jet wanted almos...

Final Bandsaw

Final Bandsaw

1645 days ago by PhineasWhipsnake | 11 comments »

I’m retiring in 3 months, so I decided to upgrade to this saw from a Delta 10” I bought 10 years ago. I originally wanted the 17” Grizzly, but decided to buy from a local brick & mortar store (Sacrramento Machinery)for political reasons. This saw has pretty much all the features I wanted: 12” resaw capacity, roller guides, quick-disconnect detensioning, and, most importantly, local support in case of a problem. Like everyone else, I replaced the blade with a...

Great 115 Volt Saw

Great 115 Volt Saw

1787 days ago by Ben | 11 comments »

I finally received my supersaw after two months on backorder. It was worth the wait. Jet ran a Fathers day deal in June and I got it cheap. Assembly I spent the better part of a Saturday putting the whole machine together. Everything was packaged well and there was no damage. I would rate the manual a 7 out of 10. I did spend 20 minutes looking for one package of bolts that they had packed inside one of the fence rails with the cap on it. I finally read the manual very closely to ...

Rock Solid Jointer!

Rock Solid Jointer!

1541 days ago by CryptKeeper | 10 comments »

I purchased this jointer this past weekend and I have already run a few feet of white oak without any problems. Pros:The manual was easy to follow and assembly was a snap. Plenty of power. Faced 6” white oak removing a 1/16 of inch no problem Reasonable foot print for small shop. I actually went to order the 8” Jet but after talking with my dealer I realized there was no way I could handle that unit by myself (unloading and assembly) and it would take up too much floor ...

JET 708315BTC 10" Bench top Table Saw

JET 708315BTC 10" Bench top Table Saw

1650 days ago by Viktor | 10 comments »

JET 708315BTC 10” Bench top Table SawPrice $250+ When I set off to find a budget and more importantly compact saw, I went through lots of online reviews and ratings. It surprised me that many people pay $200-$300 and expect a professional fine tuned cabinet saw jump right out of the box. Then they give poor rating without even bothering to set riving knife correctly or check blade alignment. I look at it this way: There are things that you can modify, fix or adjust (flimsy fence, ...

As the price falls, the rating rises

As the price falls, the rating rises

I found this Jet JWL 1236 lathe on Craigslist and just got it home and set up today. I’ve gone over many reviews of this lathe on the web, and the couple hours use I’ve had today have proven some of the gripes right. I put a 4×4 on it and rounded it, and I found it has a rattle coming from somewhere but the lathe doesn’t shake like some have said. It seems to have enough weight to keep from dancing around. The rattle I think is made worse by the dull tools I was using, ...

Jet model CTAS 10-1 right tilt, 3 HP 220V

Jet model CTAS 10-1 right tilt, 3 HP 220V

283 days ago by MrRon | 10 comments »

I bought this saw 25 years ago. I thought a review of this saw would be useful to people looking for good used machines on E-Bay and CL. It has been across the country in my many moves. I believe the price at the time was around $1100. I added a Biesemeyer 54” fence to it as soon as I got it. It has seen much use over it’s 25+ years. It still runs perfectly; bearings are tight; top is flat; everything remains aligned. I couldn’t ask any more from a saw. It would compare favo...

Jet Jointer early christmas gift

Jet Jointer early christmas gift

612 days ago by Woodmaster1 | 9 comments »

My wife got me the jointer for christmas and ask is this the last machine I need for my shop. I said yes. (LOL) We all know that we never have enough. The jointer was package well and it took less than an hour to assemble, clean and set the outfeed and infeed tables. The jointer ran smooth with no excessive vibration. The motor needed no adjustment for the belt. The fence was easy to set square and has a stop to set it at 90 and keep it there. My trial cuts came out as smooth as glass. I ran ...
