The setup was relatively easy with a helper. That's when I realized that I needed a better saw. Plastic is a cost saving measure. I will be installing that when I install the cast wings. Miter Gauge - The miter gauge is an absolute joke.

Jet JTAS-1050XL-1DX Final Thoughts
"It's a touch flexible."
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.
