I am relatively new to woodworking – have been building things for about a year now, and I have taken quite a bit of inspiration from the projects you all post here @ lumberjocks. My first “real” table saw was a 20 year old Crafstman I picked up off Craigslist for next to nothing, but as my skills have grown and as the aging craftsman begins to show it’s limitations, it is time to purchase a “Real-Real” table saw. I have been looking for a cabinet saw, but Craigslist around here has very slim pickin’s.
Something finally came up a few days ago – a Jet 10” table saw with 50” table. He was asking 1075 or best offer.. In conversation I told him I thought he was high – to which he has responded that he will go to $950.. That still seems slightly high to me.. He says the saw has very low hours on it yadda yadda.. I am going to see the saw in an hour or so, and I would really appreciate anyone’s insight into whether this is a reasonable price or not. I assume the saw comes with everything it originally sold with, nothing more, and assume it is in pristine near-new condition..
I am sorry, he did not have an accurate model # – he just called it a JTAS 10-1.. With the 50” fence, it may be the XL50 – I won’t know until I see it later. Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
PS: I am not much of a writer, but have really enjoyed reading all your updates / blogs / projects over the last year. Thank you!
