Amazon has a deal on a Jet 3 HP TS with router lift and bosch router for
$1700... Do any of you have this saw? I have been going over the top
brands - Delta, PM, General, and handn't considered a Jet until I came
I was very much impressed by the feeback at Amazon on the saw. I have heard
horror stories about Delta along with "trunion issues" and also recent
quality control issues at PM. Very much a mixed bag by way of service for
these "gold standard" brands..... So.... Any input from y'all?
Where are these saws made? Are Delta's TS, the X5's American made? PM? I
know that General is Canada and Gen Int'l is Chaiwanese... Is Jet as well?
My Bosch 4412 SCMS was made in Taiwan and it is tough as a tank and deadly
accurate... I'd like to buy American, but it is getting harder and harder
to do so.... So, how about some help here...
Here's the link at Amazon....

JET 708663DXK JTAS-10XL JET Left-Tilt Xacta Saw with 50" Fence,
Router Lift, Upgrade Fence, and Bosch Router
Thanks in advance. I'd especially like to hear from any of you that OWN or
have used this saw, especially in relation to the other makes. I use an old
Unisaw tank in my WW class and have an old craftsman contractor saw in my
home shop. I live out in the sticks, so I don't have the ability to do much
by way of hands on comparisons.
BTW, I am finishing sanding the walnut cradle for my niece's newborn, due a
week from tomorrow.... I attached the rockers last night, I've carved my
name and date in the bottom panel, and etched a copper plate with her
family's surname, Banks, for the headboard of the cradle. I should put two
coats of oil on it tomorrow, then some wax and I'll give it to her Wednesday
or Thursday. Pics to follow....
