I have an opportunity to buy a used JTAS-10xl-1 that includes the following:
Router extension table
Additional extension w/ support legs
Beisemeyer fence
Excalibur Fence (yes, two different fences)
Roller base

There is some surface rust on the router top and one extension but the other surfaces are clean. According to the owner there has been no issue with alignment or other functional problems.

The saw is approximately six years old and only used as a hobby saw. It has apparently sat unused for the last 2 years. The owner is asking $700 for the saw, or $1000 for the saw plus a large number of others tools (3 jointers, a PC router, dust collector, and others).

This seems like a fair price, especially if the rust can be cleaned up. Before I pull the trigger, I thought I’d ask the experts. This would be my first table saw, and while I’ve done my research, I want to be sure.

Does this saw have a 3 HP motor? If so you need 220V power. The price sounds reasonable. I have a Jet cabinet saw that is about 25 years old and it is a great machine.

if the rust is only on the surface you will have no issues cleaning it off. Check the full travel of the blade, up and down and tilt. Fine wood dust can hold a lot of moisture and corrode the carriage bad.

Edit: if everything works of course.

MrRon I have a zero clearance blade insert system (about 10 inserts) that has never been used that I would sell for cheap if you’re interested? It fits the blue JTAS 3 hp cabinet saw. If interested shoot me a PM.

Yup, it’s the 3HP motor, and I’ve got 220v running to my garage, just no outlet installed (just moved in a couple months ago and haven’t got it all wired yet). I’m going for it. I’ll let y’all know when it’s said and done. Dozer, thanks for the tip on the wood dust. Never thought about that.

Well I got it. I paid $900 for the saw with attached router extension, a like new porter cable 1 1/2 HP plunge router, both the standard Jet and Excalibur rail/fences, a rolling base, and a roller out-feed table. The other tools were either stuff I already had or weren’t worth the effort. The owner had already cleaned up the rust by the time I got there, so it looked immaculate both on the table and around the motor. Apparently, he was the second owner – the first guy hardly used it and this guy hasn’t used it in two years since getting some kind of sliding table saw for his business.

The only two downsides are that he had the saw wired directly to his power source, and the cable is too short, so I’ll have to replace the cable. The other thing was that he bought the Excalibur used, so he didn’t have the digital reader to pass on to me. The fence moves great, I’ll just have to rig up a regular tape and pointer. Still, I’m totally stoked. This is my first table saw, and with any luck my last!

Sounds like you did good. I paid $1000 for the same saw with the same peripherals (except the original Jet Xacta fence) and a Bosch router in the router hole a few years ago. You should get good use out of yours.
