Hi guys, I’m wondering which of these 2 tables you would choose. The Kreg is $499 and the Jessem is $399. The Jessem has got mostly good reviews but there are some bad reviews for set up of the fence being difficult. Obviously i’d rather spend $399 than $499 but the Kreg has a lot of good reviews. I’m curious which one you would choose and why? Thanks guys

I like the Kreg because of the leveling system and the self squaring fence. I am torn between the Kreg and the Incra LS.

i will definitely be using the incra 1000se miter gauge. Thing is nice and accurate. Just tonr between which of these 2 tables. I dont have a table saw so i can buy an attachment to one. Maybe in the future. I’m leaning towards the kreg too.

Why doncha just make one?
I’ve got at least $24.00 in mine, and it works just fine.
BUT WAIT!! I think it was $34.00.

The only reason why i was going to buy one is beacuse it comes with a fence the table top with miter slot and phenolic insert as well as the stand. Making one would be great but it didnt look like i’d be saving much $ that route. Believe me i have thought about it
