Topic tags/keywords: jet craigslist tablesaw

Found a Jet table saw – apparently in working condition – for $100. All I have is the picture. Seems like an enclosed cabinet is worth a flier for $100, but wanted to check and see what people thought.

Intended usage would be both work on lumber and sheetwork.

$100 seems like a good deal for a cabinet saw. It doesn’t look to be in rough shape. What else can you find out about it before taking a look?

sheetrock – one of the quickest and best ways to louse up a TS.

Sheetrock? Really?

That looks like one of the Mao Shan Taiwanese contractor saws from the 80s or 90s. It’s pretty much the same saw as the old Grizzly G1022, Ohio Forge, AFF, old PM and many other brands. It’s not a true cabinet saw, but if it runs good, the motor is probably worth close to $100, so not much downside.

Where do you see sheetrock in that? Sheetock is like drywall, sheet work is plywood type materials, OSB, ect.

Let me clarify: by sheetwork, I mean sheets of ply, not sheetrock. That would get messy :)

Misread. Sorry about that. I just had this horrible vision of OP pushing a sheet of Dry wall through the saw, laughing like Dr Frankenstein while a stream of white dust flies out of the saw. It was a bad vision.

No problem at all, I would have been similarly skeptical :)
