Updated on May 17, 2010

Review of the JET 708480K JPS-30 Tablesaw

Far and away the most useful machine in any wood working shop is the JET 708480K JPS-30: 10-Inch ProShop Tablesaw 1-3/4-Horsepower 30-Inch Rip Fence with Steel Wings . A table saw is the first machine that you should purchase for your workshop since it has a wide variety of uses and will almost certainly be the most used machine in your shop. There are a number of things that you are going to want to look at when selecting a table saw, the first is the work surface. The work surface should be smooth and heavy this is important, the last thing you want is a flimsy table saw. The larger the work surface the better. You also want to make sure that you get a saw like the JET 708480K that has enough power to get through harder pieces of wood. There should be very little vibration and the the saw should start smoothly. The rip fence is another very important consideration when you are selecting a table saw. The most important thing is that the fence is parallel and that it remains parallel to the saw blade. There is no way that you are going to get an accurate cut if the rip fence is out of position. This is a problem with a lot of the cheaper saws, the fence mechanism warps and the fence is out of parallel. This is one of those cases where you do tend to get what you pay for JET 708480K has a fence that remains parallel. The fence should also have controls that allow you to fine tune the adjustments so that you get exactly the cut you want. You should also try to get the highest fence possible, a lot of table saws have fences that are too low. Your table saw should also come with a miter gauge to allow you to make angled crosscuts. Some of the cheaper saw don't include a mite gauge but any saw you purchase really should have one. The miter gauge should be marked clearly and easy to adjust so that you can easily set the angle you want. You should also make sure that the miter gauge slides smoothly and that it doesn't feel loose. Proper safety equipment is vitally important important on any tool that you use and this is especially true for a table saw. The off switch needs to large and in a location that you can get to it quickly and easily. There should be a large paddle switch that you pull out to turn the saw on and push in when you want to turn it off. That way you can turn the saw off with your knee so that you can use both hands to steady whatever you are cutting. You saw should also come with a blade guard. You really can't go wrong with the JET 708480K JPS-30: 10-Inch ProShop Tablesaw 1-3/4-Horsepower 30-Inch Rip Fence with Steel Wings .
