    New cabinet saw

    Well after many years of service, I felt it was time to upgrade. The old craftsman is history and now I will be using the new Jet 10" cabinet saw with extension table and built in xacta lift router table. I have been saving my money and finally bit the bullet. Now I just need to get my shop in order so I can start using it to wittle down my long list of projects. I can't wait to put it through it's paces and seeing what it can do. I still need to upgrade my router. I'm looking for something around 3 1/4 HP. Any suggestions?

    Sweet, Bobby! That's a nice piece of machinery. Best of luck with it.

    That's one nice upgrade Bobby. Sorry, don't have a suggestion for you on the router, but someone will chime in.

    I had the same saw when I bought my first new saw. I was never so happy as the day I get rid of it. I went to the Powermatic 66 then which is the same as your jet now and let me tell you, you are going to be in seventh heaven now my friend. No more having to get the tape out every time you move the fence no need to measure both ends of fence to see it you have it set parallel and no more bogging down. Your going to Love that machine my friend nice score.

    That's a sweet looking saw, I wish the ones they sell around here were the same quality and price.

    Enjoy it and make a lot of projects but SAFELY.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I think you may notice a difference, congrats on a great machine. I run a Milwaukee 5625 in the RT extension and would buy another one in a heartbeat. I own several different brands of routers and the Mil's are a different animal in the pack. I don't know about compatibility with your lift though.
