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 Table Saws that we rated most highly. Having said that, there were a handful of other truly high quality Belt Driven Table Saws we wanted to show you here that only just fell short.

Jet is another leading maker of Table Saws. They make the tool that is next on our lineup. Jet's Table Saws are one of their top offerings. I was excited to have a go at the model JTAS-1050XL-1DX and I was not let down!

The model JTAS-1050XL-1DX Table Saw by Jet, at $2622.49 is a particularly exceptional Table Saw for the price. If you unsure about our number one choice, I'd check out the Jet JTAS-1050XL-1DX next. It's a top quality tool at a good price.

The Powermatic PM1000 and the JTAS-10XL30-1DX by Jet are worthy of a look also. Both tool manufacturers are popular for their premium Table Saws. both of these particular tools received very good end user reviews as well. The Powermatic received a user rating of 4.1/5 when contrasted against the 4.6/5 star rating given to the JTAS-10XL30-1DX by Jet.

The PM1000 by Powermatic has a couple of 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 very competitive with 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 suggest both of these Belt Driven Table 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.
