JET recently unveiled its new 12-in. XACTA™ Cabinet Saw to us at the IWF trade show in Atlanta, and now the saw is available to the general public. The machine is equipped with a 5hp single-phase TEFC motor that transfers power to the blade through a poly V-belt to reduce slippage. Changing blades and performing routine maintenance tasks is easier, thanks to an integrated arbor lock and hinged motor cover.
But what really sets this big 630-lb. table saw apart from the competition is its 80-in. precision-ground, all cast-iron tabletop and extension table. The ample cast-iron offers maximum density for smoother sawing and a dead-flat general work surface when not in use. The left-tilting saw also comes with a 40-1/2-in. commercial-grade XACTA rip fence that slides 50 inches to the right of the blade and 14 inches to the left to accommodate oversized workpieces and sheet goods.
A dust collection shroud surrounds the blade inside the cabinet and directs dust through an integrated hose to a 4-in. external dust port. Also included is a deluxe miter gauge with adjustable positive stops to support crosscuts and mitering operations. A dado insert and external tool and fence storage come standard, too.
This machine is covered by a five-year JET Red Assurance warranty program. The JTAS-12-DX 12-in. XACTA Saw has a street price of $4,700. Learn more about it by clicking here. Or visit jettools.com to find JET distributor in your area.
