ok! heres the deal… i found a guy here locally that is selling a bunch of tools that he bought to build some cabinets and hasnt used them since..
i went to look at his 6 1/8 inch craftsman professional jointer with mobile base for 250.00 (i think thats a pretty good deal! you?)
while i was there he showed me an older craftsman table saw with a Jet xacta (mico adjust) fence and extension with a router table built and mobile base. the router table had a jessem lift plate and bosch router in it as well!also some odds and ends that went along with it…. craftsman molding head cutter, extra blades, etc… all for 400.00 he said he would sell all of it (saw,jointer and router) for 550.00 does that sound like a good deal?
all i really want and need is the jointer and the router lift but he wont seperate the lift and router from the saw! :(

any body want to buy a TS with jet extension/ xacta fence (micro adjust) and mobile base? any insite is appreciated!!

Grab the deal, you can always craigs list the saw for 2-300 and have what you want at a real steal.

ok so i pulled the trigger and here is what i got… Craftsman professional 6.125” jointer with mobile base Craftsman tablesaw (older style but works and looks good) Jet Xact micro adjust fence and Extension and mobile base Jessem Router lift and Plate Bosch Router and a couple bits Frued thin kerf rip blade was mounted in the TS and a older wobble dado blade Finallly a Craftsman Moulding head cutter for a TS with 5 different profiles

Now heres the problem….. I already have a Rigid R4511 and this past weekend i put a one piece rail and extended the other rails on it to add a router table to the end of it! now i day after finishing it i have a really nice Jet Xacta II fence and extension sitting here. The plan was to buy all listed above and take the router/ lift and jointer… and then sell the rest to recoupe some of the money! but the Jet Fence is really nice! what to do what to do?
without the Jet fence and extensions the Craftsman TS is worth as much and would be harder to sell?!
