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 our number one Belt Driven Saws. However, there were a few other very high quality Belt Driven Saws we wanted to showcase here that only just missed first place.

Next on our list is manufactured by Jet known to be a very highly regarded tool brand. Jet's Table Saws are one of their premier offerings. I was eager to try out the model JTAS-1050XL-1DX and I was not let down!

This Table Saw is just $2622.49. That is a fantastic deal for a high quality Saw like the JTAS-1050XL-1DX by Jet. The Jet JTAS-1050XL-1DX is definitely a sound option. Of you are not sure about our top selection, I'd advise to choose this Saw.

The Powermatic PM1000 and the Jet JTAS-10XL30-1DX are worthy of looking into also. Both Powermatic and Jet are regarded as some of the leading suppliers of high quality Saws. Both tools are rated highly as well. The PM1000 boasts a score of 4.1/5 when contrasted against the 4.6/5 star rating received by the Jet JTAS-10XL30-1DX.

The Powermatic PM1000 has a few features you wont get on competing Table Saws. For example Cabinet saw that only requires 115V power. The JTAS-10XL30-1DX by Jet although, is tough to beat with Quick release riving knife greatly reduces binding/kickback risk plus Push button arbor lock (patent pending) for rapid blade change.

Either of these two options make a great option for someone whose 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.
