So far I have been using some older tools that are craftsman or harbor freight specials. I just spent $850 dollars on a Jet 52” table saw 1.5 hp with an xacta fence and a xacta miter, plus a table extension with router table and Jessum lift holding a dewalt router PLUS a 14” Jet Bandsaw with fence and tire upgrades and some spring upgrade….

What do you guys think? deal or no deal?

In my opinion, assuming everything is in good working order, you got a deal. The bottom line is, the value is in how much you use them and to what extent you are happy with them. If they become space eating monsters that just gather dust, at any price its a bad deal. So go out and make some saw dust and start adding value to them. They should be great tools! Good luck.

nick…. i truly hope you enjoy your new tools and that they provide you with the type of service you deserve. they appear to be in excellent condition. i recently sold a preowned 18” jet BS (JWBS-18) and replaced it with a pre owned 18’ rikon (10-340). it was my first jet power tool and i will NEVER own another product of the wmh tool group. i hope your experience with the brand and their products is better than mine was.
