Jet makes improvements  to ProShop saw series

Jet has updated its 10” ProShop table saw with several options to meet a shop’s specific needs.

“Overall, it really is like a contractor-style saw with a lot of the features you’d find on a high-end cabinet saw,” says Michael D’Onofrio, Jet’s product manager for woodworking.

Customers can select the standard 30” rip fence model or upgrade to a 52” version and choose cast iron or stamped steel extension wings.

Jet’s updates include a new arbor lock design and a clear view blade guard assembly with separate leaves that function independently of one another. A redesigned, quick-release riving knife reduces the chance of kickback. A low-profile riving knife and dado insert also are included, according to the company.

“One of the areas of improvement we saw on the old saw was cleaning up dust around the blade, adds D’Onofrio. “The dust was dropping into the cabinet and not getting sucked up into the dust collector, so we put a shroud around the blade like we do with our Powermatic saws. It’s a high-end feature that limits the travel of dust until it hits the dust collector.”

The saw has a base price of about $1,200.
