Anyone have a Jet JCS10 TS?


There is one for sale locally. What do you think of it? Is the stock fence any good?
I have read through the on line manual, and taking the rails and extension wing off are easy enough, but I think it will still be too heavy to get into my basement. Will the table or motor come off without too much violence?

I'm not familiar with the model number stated but I have a Jet JTAS-10 which is a 3 HP cabinet saw. With the help of a friend and a refrigerator doll we easily got mine in the basement. The cabinet/motor/main table (minus the extension tables) were taken down as one unit.

same here... I got mine in the basement with a friends help and a dolly in one piece (minus extension wings and extension table). I had more trouble with my JET 18 inch band saw.

I'm not familiar with that model number. Perhaps it's an older one? What color is it? Their current contractor saw offering is: (Amazon.com product link shortened)33626596/sr=8-3/ref=pd_bbs_3/102-2737701-3757736?nP7846&s=hi&v=glance
I have one and it's been great. It's been my primary saw until this year when I broke down and bought a cabinet saw with the intention of selling the Jet to offset the cost (at least that's what I told my wife :) ). It's still in the garage! The fence works ok but compared to the Vega fence I installed on it (and eventually the cabinet saw), it's got a bit to be desired. That being said, I built a number of cabinets/furniture pieces with it and was thoroughly happy with it. That's probably why I've still got it and don't plan on selling it now! Cheers, cc

Actually it is a cabinet saw, though it only has a 2hp motor and a two belt system.

I have had one for several years now and it seems to work fine . I almost sold it a couple of months ago, but decided to sell my house and move to Myrtle Beach first. I cut LOTS of white oak and maple with mine. I use Forrest blades (Woodworker II) and have no complaints. I am not sure how much to ask for mine when I sell it this spring. I'd be interested to know what you paid for yours, if I'm not being too nosey. Anyway - good luck with it. I think you will enjoy it. Matt
