- Jet 10” JWTS-10 table saw; left-tilting arbor; enclosed 1-1/2 HP motor; 110/220 V; 30” rip capacity – Zero clearance insert in addition to the regular insert – Cast iron table; stamped steel wings
- Incra 1000 SE precision miter gage – Freud 8” dado stack (used once) – Freud 10” table saw calibration/sanding disk – 2 Crafstman blades

The guy who is selling is asking $500. I am at $400. Am I being unreasonable? Is this a good buy at either price?

I paid 475 for mine and the motor hangs out the back, did not have the miter gauge improvement or the ZC plate. Toos like that come up pretty often by me.
400 would be great, 500 is fair.

What fence comes with it? The extras are mostly good stuff, but I doubt the Cman blades are worth a nickel.

It looks like the stock fence from the pictures, not the xacta that I sometimes have seen as a upgrade.

Excellent miter gauge, looks to be in nice shape. I’d still pursue some better blades….the Freud Diablo and Irwin Marples lines start at around $30, and are an excellent bang for the buck.

Thanks for the tip. I am truly a beginner so I am trying to soak in all the info. Now I need to figure out a better layout for the portion of my garage dedicated to its use.

Grizzly’s website has a really neat shop planner that’s free, is to scale, and is fairly easy to use. http://www.grizzly.com/workshopplanner

Here’s a pick of my layout from their website:
