The Jet Table saws are top of the line. For months i could not decide between the g690 and this one. So I've had the new Jet in use for almost two months now. I can see why this make is considered the Cadillac of saws. The block isn't mentioned in the assembly instructions.

The truth is that the Grizzly Industrial G0690 was the Belt Driven Saws that we graded most highly. With that said, there are several other superb alternatives when it comes to Belt Driven Saws. We have them for you here.

Jet is yet another major maker of Saws. They make the tool next up on our list. Jet's Table Saws are great as well. I was ready to try the model JTAS-1050XL-1DX and I was not let down!

This Table Saw is merely $2622.49. That is a terrific deal for a premium Saw like the JTAS-1050XL-1DX by Jet. If you unsure about our top selection, I'd consider the Jet JTAS-1050XL-1DX next. It's a high quality tool at a good price.

Push button arbor lock for rapid blade change

Poly-V drive belt system delivers efficient, quiet operation

In addition to the option we researched above, I would definitely have a look at the PM1000 by Powermatic and the Jet JTAS-10XL30-1DX. Both tool manufacturers are known for their top quality Saws. Both tools are top rated also. Customers gave the Powermatic an average score of 4.1/5 stars. Compare that to the Jet JTAS-10XL30-1DX which boasts an average rating of 4.6/5 stars.

The PM1000 by Powermatic offers several really premium features like Cabinet saw that only requires 115V power. The Jet JTAS-10XL30-1DX although, is very competitive offering Quick release riving knife greatly reduces binding/kickback risk plus Push button arbor lock (patent pending) for rapid blade change.

I would be eager to recommend either of these Belt Driven Saws

I also cut some 1/4in birch plywood and it worked great. I expected a Powermatic made tool for the premium price I paid. Ok, now for a slightly more in depth review. The major problem I had was assembling the saw on the stand. Easy assembly and little to no adjustments necessary.

Does Everything with ease and consistent accuracy. I expected a Jet made tool for the premium price I paid. My fence broke after less than 6 months. I love having 52 inches of capacity. Miter Gauge - The miter gauge is an absolute joke.

Accurate right out of the box with a great fit and finish. But overall I'm really pleased with this saw. For the money this is an outstanding value. So I always measure out and chalk anyway. Oak, maple, even had to cut some soaking wet Ponderosa pine.

It was really nice as well and hard to say which is better. It's durable plastic, but still plastic. Miter gauge has definitely been updated. I love having 52 inches of capacity. It pretty much laughed at anything I threw at it.
