New Cabinet saw

Hello all, SWMBO has given me the go ahead to buy my long dreamt for cabinet saw. My choices lie in a Jet, De;ta Unisaw with either 50" Biesmeyer, or Unifence, or the new X-5 Unisaw with either fence. Which one and WHY would any of you choose, given the freedom to purchase any of these. Clif

Unisaw with Unifence. What I researched and bought the first time. Like the Unifence and the ability to take it off quickly and use it as a straight edge. Like the Unisaw 3 belt drive, parts availlability and the fact that everything is compared to the Unisaw. Jet probably makes as good a saw.

Ditto -
Unisaw with a Unifence.
I like the ability to pull the Unifence back and use it and it's gauge to accurately and safely crosscut.
You won't go wrong with either but that was my preference.
Have fun shopping!

IMHO and since you have some experience with this, go look at them and touch them for your self. You cannot go wrong with any of them. Personally I chose the Jet over the Unisaws when I was able to compare the 2 side by side.

Personally, I chose the Delta over the Jet and Powermatic when I was able to compare the 3 side by side. :)

10 to 12 years ago I compared the Unisaw and Jet sitting side be side and the Jet won... (money was not a factor) it just "looked better"... Hell of a reason to buy but int he 10-12 years I've have owned it I have had absolutely zero problems
However... Either is a damn good saw....
Now I ordered the Jet with a Biesmeyer 50" fence (at that time Delta did not own Biesmeyer..and you could order the fence of your choice)... ANYWAY I had prior experience with using the Bies and Honestly I think it is a GREAT FENCE...I like rock solid...and this thing is rock solid...
So I vote (50" Biesmeyer) and whatever saw the coin flip results in...

It's not on your list, but the Powermatic 66 is my top choice. Its triunion is beefy. My second choice is General 350. I like the Biesmeyer fence.
