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 fact is that the Grizzly Industrial G0690 was the Belt Driven Table Saws that we rated at the top. Nevertheless, there were a range of other truly premium quality Belt Driven Table Saws worth showcasing here that just barely fell short.

Next up is manufactured by Jet known to be a very credible tool brand. Jet's Table Saws are great as well. It was fantastic to test the JTAS-1050XL-1DX. I was very happy with this tool!

This Table Saw is only $2622.49. That is an exceptional deal for a premium Table Saw like the JTAS-1050XL-1DX by Jet. The Jet JTAS-1050XL-1DX is definitely a solid option. Of you are uncertain about our top choice, I would opt for this Table Saw.

Each of these distinct tools enjoy fantastic customer ratings also. Genuine customers gave the Powermatic an rating on average of 4.1/5 stars.

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.
