Agreed Toolie – between adding riser kits and a good fence, the Jet and Griz are creeping closer to the Rikon price. I believe the Griz comes with a fence but i am a fan of the Kreg product line and would have upgraded regardless.

Honestly, i had eliminated the Porter Cable and Ridgid units already. I have looked at the PC model in Big Blue and just wasnt overly impressed. A buddy of mine has the Ridgid 14” and again just not that impressed with fit or finish, almost HF quality. I think they have been engineered to simply fill the gap in those product lines that are simply retailer brands at this point. I know PC isnt officially a Big Blue brand, like Kobalt and Ridgid (H.D.) but they might as well be.

CL posting in area for a 10-325 with extra blades for $800 right now. Claim of only being used a few times. Probably best to wait until a new unit goes on sale??
