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 Grizzly Industrial G0690 was really our preferred Belt Driven Saws. Even so, there were a handful of other truly premium Belt Driven Saws we wanted to show you here that barely fell short.

The next in our tool break down is made by Jet which is a very credible tool brand. Jet's Table Saws are among their top products. It was terrific to try out the JTAS-1050XL-1DX. I was very happy with this tool!

This Table Saw is merely $2622.49. That is a fantastic deal for a superior Saw like the JTAS-1050XL-1DX by Jet. The Jet JTAS-1050XL-1DX is really a solid alternative. Of you are uncertain about our top pick, I'd suggest you pick this Saw.

In addition to the selections we already covered, I would definitely have a look at the PM1000 by Powermatic and the JTAS-10XL30-1DX by Jet. Both Powermatic and Jet are considered two of the premier makers of high quality Saws. both of these unique options received great customer reviews also. The PM1000 received a user rating of 4.1/5 when compared to 4.6/5 star rating received by the JTAS-10XL30-1DX by Jet.

The Powermatic PM1000 provides some very premium features such as Cabinet saw that only requires 115V power. The Jet JTAS-10XL30-1DX however, is very competitive with Quick release riving knife greatly reduces binding/kickback risk plus Push button arbor lock (patent pending) for rapid blade change.

Both of these two selections are a great choice if you're in the market for 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.
