First, let me say thanks to all who posted on my arrival here…much appreciated.

My questions are regarding a Jet JJ-6CSX (Stock: 708457J), photo in link below:

1) Is this a parallelogram bed (Manual I found on the web doesnt say)?
2) Whats difference between the “Gold Series” (shown in photo) vs. the regular model?

I’m not familiar with the Jet other than looking it over in stores, but IIRC, it was made in the same factory and has the same design as the Grizzy 1182, older GI, Bridgewood, Woodtek, and Sunhill that were all made in the Mao Shan plant in Taiwan. It’s also the same design as the Ridgid but I don’t know where that one is made. These all use the dovetail ways AFAIK, not the parallelogram bed. I understand that the parallelogram is supposed to have some advantages, but the design of your Jet and the others mentioned is very well proven.

Not sure what the Gold Series includes, but it looks good!
