Hey Folks,

New member here but I’ve been lurking these forums for a while.

I’m in the market for a new to be tablesaw. Saw a Jet Pro Shop Hybrid being offered for $400. It’s a belt drive and claims he got it ~ 10 years ago and paid over 1k. Apparently the table extension has a built in router, and he’ll throw in the router.

I’m just trying to get a feel as to whether this price is worth it. Table extensions are cast iron and not stamped steel.

Thanks!

I have to think that saw is well worth $400, but there is so much more to this than the model and price. Your area, the condition of the saw, and probably a dozen other things. One comment about the stamped steel wings: my first saw had them (a Delta 34-444) and I used for many years. The steel wings work just fine. Yeah, they look cheesy compared to cast iron, and are there to save money. But if they’re aligned they are just fine. You might want to check this review here at LJ and see what he thought of the saw.

I still use my Jet JTS10 contractor saw from the early 90’s. It works. I’d like to move up to a cabinet saw with 3 or 5 hp, but just haven’t afforded it yet. Good used ones are very much in demand. The router feature is a nice one. If it has a topside adjuster or the router plate lifts off from the top, so much the better. If not, it can be more difficult to adjust and set. Either way, you may have to lower the bit below the surface to use the saw, and they share the rip fence so setups may have to be broken down frequently. $400 may be a decent price if motor, table, belt, miter gage and fence are all good.

if it is in good general visual condition, runs smooth and it raises/lowers/tilts smoothly then with the router table and router I’d think the $400 sounds reasonable.

My buddy had one for a while and he generally liked the saw.
