The JET 708663PK Cabinet Table Saw – A Clear-cut Choice for Cutting Wood
Made with a left-tilting blade and 50-inch total rip capacity, this saw beats any of its closest rivals with respect to price and overall solidness and construction.
The JET brand makes every effort to take care of the details, what with such features as a quick-connect plug, a metal stand equipped with a dust port and fence rails that are made to accommodate both right and left-handed sawers.
Some of the Amenities
The tilting blade enables the user to cut pieces without difficulty and the blade height adjustment makes it possible to cut sheets or wood without suffering from wrist of knuckle injuries. The blade can be adjusted to the appropriate height without having to run tests for each dado, rabbet, and tongue or groove as well.
Equipped with a fan-cooled motor, the JET 708663PK cabinet table saw promises to be a reliable and long-living piece of machinery.
Details that Can’t be Overlooked . . .
The saw touts a one-of-a-kind 50-inch XACTA fence II with a T-square composition. Its broad stance and smooth blade positioning is complemented by casing that is powder-coated and chip-resistant.
The saw also features a maximum RPM of 4,200, 14.5 amps of power, 5/8 inch arbor and a table that measures 20 x 27. The saw itself is 85” long by 35” wide by 40” tall.
JET 708663PK Cabinet Table Saw Reviews
Positive Reviews and Comments
Users of the JET 708663PK JTAS-10XL50-W1 10-Inch cabinet table saw were primarily complementary in their assessments with many commenters issuing four and five-star ratings. One satisfied customer said he replaced a 15-year-old Craftsman saw with the JET machine.
After replacing the belt and pulleys on the old saw, he was happy with how the Craftsman performed – that is, until he started using the JET table saw.
Another purchaser said it took him about three hours to assemble his machine. He said he liked his JET table saw as it was very easy to maintain. He also commented that vibration from the saw was almost indiscernible. The fence, he added, was also well-constructed and worked admirably.
A Couple of Complaints
Some dissatisfaction was expressed by a few customers, mostly with respect to the fence and motor. In fact, one user said that his motor’s run capacitor overheated and caught fire because of an over-accumulation of dust within the component.
The dust entered the windings on the machine because no rubber gaskets had been installed on the saw covers.
According to some users too, some room for improvement could be made with respect to changing the blade and removing the guard. However, all in all, most purchasers found the machine to be a superior choice with respect to its quiet operation and capacity for cutting wood.
Nevertheless, A Good Overall Impression
So, while not everyone had a good experience when using the JET table saw, the majority of customers felt jubilant about their purchase.
Also, of note – most of the users who had complaints commented that the warranty had run out on their machine, thereby indicating that they had used the saw for quite a while before experiencing a problem. (The JET 708663PK table saw comes with a two-year limited warranty.)
