Does anyone know what the differences are between a JJ-6cs, JJ-6csdx, and a JJ-6csx?

I’m not 100% sure on this so for what it may be worth….

The letters indicate options, I think the ‘X’ indicates a closed stand (cabinet). The ‘D’ indicates a longer bed.

The CS in JJ-6cs means closed stand. Therefore the X must mean something else.

It could be the one with quick set knives. I don’t follow the jet stuff very closely. But I do know someone that has jet jointer. But he doesn’t use it for woodworking . Acrylics only.

+1 CS = closed stand
D or DX = typically means deluxe version
These models had higher price, usually with more HP and some times a magnetic starter, newer deluxe models have quick change knife option also.

Marketing PN’s above don’t tell the whole story. Jet used the same JJ-6CS for machine made in Taiwan and one made in China that looked similar but were different designs. A lot of the base castings are same Jet specification, but were made by many suppliers. There are subtle parts differences between the same JJ-6CS model, and only way to tell the difference is by using the actual product number.
The product PN usually start with 708XXX with 6 numbers, and maybe suffix letters.
The most recent JET JJ-6OS open stand was model 708455. Model number 708456 was most recently discontinued JJ-6CS. Current 6” models are 708457 and 708466.
Only way to know which model you have is typically via the sales order, or manual provided with machine. That is where the actual model number was hiding.

Best Luck.
