Topic tags/keywords: jet table saw price question

Hi all,

This is my first time trying to sell any of my equipment, and I’m trying to figure our how to price my table saw. I am purchasing another one from the widow of a friend of mine who has passed away. The saw that I have is a Jet JTS-10JF 10” 1.5HP table saw. It has stamped steel inserts on either side of the iron and is on a mobile base. It has its original fence and I’m adding a tall fence and zero clearance insert (both seen in pics) to go along with it. Where would you all think that I should start, planning on someone talking me down a few bucks and what do you think is a price that is fair for me to expect to actually get for it? It’s served me well and nothing is wrong with it other than what I consider to be normal wear and tear (overspray and the like). What do you think? Don’t be shy. I’m not going to get my feelings hurt. Just looking for opinions because I’ve got nothin’...

Thanks for the input!

Stephen

$250 maybe. You could hold out for more
but be prepared to store it for awhile.

I have that same table saw and I bought mine for $300 about 3 years ago. I also live in California, so you’ll want to figure that in too. It also came with a pretty good set of accessories, some plywood hold downs (I don’t know what to call them), a nice dado blade set, some featherboards, and an Incra Miter Guage that is probably worth nearly $100 on it’s own.

Hope that helps. Good luck with your sale!

I agree with the consensus range so far….$200-$300. Looks clean. It’s a good basic Taiwanese contractor saw with a functional fence. The knocks will be steel wings, right tilt, no riving knife, and an outboard motor. If you have the blade guard, it’d be helpful. Lots of potential for someone though. Good luck!

I have this exact same saw. I think I paid $500-$600 when I bought it new about 20 years ago.

It looks to me like the fence has been cut down—but maybe it’s just the way it looks in the pictures. I also see that the original on/off switch (mounted to the fence) is missing and someone has wired a light switch as the on/off switch. The lock knob on the fence is also not original or perhaps the plastic has broken off and only the internal part is left. The rubber plugs at each end of the fence are also missing. I don’t see the safety gear (e.g. blade guard/splitter with integrated pawls)—I assume it is missing.

Assuming it has the original motor—I would say that $100 would be a fair price.

Have your say...
