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.
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.
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.
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...
