Perfect for Home Improvement

The Jet 708494K JPS-10TS Hybrid Table Saw is a perfect example of what a hybrid table saw should be. It is perfect for home improvement or for use in a small garage / workshop. It is heavy enough that you can be sure it will not move around at all when you are using it. The cast iron table top is very heavy and as such very stable.

Easy to Assemble

As far as transport and assembly goes, you should be able to get this into the basement with two or three people (the saw comes in three separate boxes). The assembly is easy enough and should take you 3 to 4 hours. In my experience the accuracy is excellent after set up (less than 0.1 degrees from square across all axes). Even if anything is a bit off out of the box, it isn’t difficult to adjust and calibrate.

Powerful, Smooth and Precise

The Jet 708494K is a real fighter. There are definitely bigger table saws out there with higher HP, but this Jet Hybrid still packs a surprising amount of power. As well as this, it runs quietly, is very smooth and has little to no vibration. You should also find that it makes a very precise cut. Many people use it to cut sheet goods and light lumber without an issue. I know of someone who runs theirs at 240v (it comes pre-wired at 120v) and is easily able to cut through hard maple.

Clever Features and Plenty of Upgrades

There are some clever little features on this saw as well. For instance removing the blade-guard and the riving knife. Just push a button in the table to lock the blade for removal. The insert is easy to remove and gives you quick access to the arbor nut.

There are also plenty of upgrades and different parts available from Jet if you feel like you want to adjust it to your personal specifications.

Jet 708494K Review: This is a top quality saw in the growing market of Hybrid Table Saws, and is recommended for reliability, sturdiness, smart quick-release features and the excellent Riving knife. Amazon routinely has the lowest prices for this saw (and most power tools!) as well as lots of other reviews.
