I’m looking to upgrade my skill jobsite saw and came across this ad on craigslist http://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/tls/4248612901.html.
Model# is a Jet JWTS-10CW2-LFR and the guy is asking $600 with an upgraded 48in fence with original included, along with a 4ft x 8ft table that looks to be well made. I realize there has already been a discussion on this saw here at $650 which many of you thought was a bit too much, but I have searched long and hard for an upgrade and am simply losing patience waiting for that great deal on a cabinet saw. What are your thoughts on this saw and what would be a reasonable price point?
I am within 2 hours of Grizzly’s Bellingham WA showroom and hold a $200 gift certificate through them, so please let me know what you might recommend new from them that would be equal or better than the Jet shown. I am looking for a saw that can make precision cuts and a fence system that I can trust without having to verify over and over fence/blade distance before making each cut. I will be making anything from small boxes, all the way up to coffee tables, entertainment cabinets, and bookshelfs and typically work with domestic and exotic hardwoods. Looking for the best saw I can get for under say, $850 and need to get something as soon as possible, which is making it difficult to wait for CL ads to pop up.
This is my first post, and I’m excited to hear from the pros on this, sorry for yet another table saw post. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated.
