The new JET Router Table features a cast iron or MDF table top, precision router lift, fence system with feather board and flip top add-ons, easily transportable rolling stand, and multiple dust collection features. Options include a cast iron or MDF table top, precision router lift, fence system with feather board and flip top add-ons, easily transportable rolling stand, and multiple dust collection features. All components are also sold separately, so that users can mix and match them to assemble the router table solution that best fits their woodshops. A choice of either cast iron or MDF table tops offer options for durability and affordability. Both table tops have a footprint of 32” x 24” to support a wide range of work pieces. The precision machined, cast iron table weighs 88 lbs. and provides maximum durability and a solid surface for all routing applications. The lighter-weight MDF table is melamine-topped for a smooth work surface. The milled aluminum router lift has above-the-table height and lock controls for convenient tool adjustments and changes. One turn of the dials raises or lowers the lift 2 mm at a time. The lift’s sturdy, four-post screw design with chain drive keeps tolerances tight and rigid. A micro-adjust fence assembly includes easy-to-read guide rails that allow users to dial-in the exact size profile required. A scale on top of the fence facilitates placement of stops at different points of operation. The adjustable fence provides optimum support for work pieces of different sizes. An integrated dust port is helps clear dust and chips at the source of the cut. The heavy duty floor standhas an integrated mobile base and onboard accessory storage. A power switch attaches to the stand, allowing the operator to control the router without reaching under the table. A miter gauge also is included. The dust collection system features an enclosed dust box that surrounds the router, as well as an integrated port in the fence at the source of the cut. The dust box’s all-metal construction with air flow vents ensures maximum dust collection and containment, as well as durability. The dust box has a standard 4” port.
JET’s new 10 in. ProShop™ Table Saw is loaded with features usually reserved for higher-end saws. Woodworking shop owners and enthusiasts can choose from the standard 30 in. or upgrade to the 52 in. rip fence and select cast iron or stamped steel extension wings. The saw’s interior has an improved blade shroud surround to improve dust collection capabilities. A convenient, oversized magnetic paddle “off” switch is employed for safe operation. The motor’s reset switch has been conveniently relocated to next to the saw’s power switch as well. The JET ProShop saw is powered by a 1-3/4 hp, single-phase motor that’s prewired for 120V or 230V operation. JET’s innovative single-lock ProShop fence design helps provide professional results as it glides easily along the saw’s rails. The left-tilt saw supports sheet goods and other dimensional lumber with the optional 52 in. maximum rip capacity to the right of the blade and 13.5 in. to the left.

Well, after nearly breaking my wrist (literally) drilling 1/2" holes 1/4" thick pieces of 4" angle, the time has come to bite the bullet and order my press. I got several suggestions including HF, Steel City, Powermatic, and Jet. The Powermatic was out of my price range. The press will be used in wood and steel applications, so the minimum rpm of 500 was the deal breaker for the otherwise best deal Steel City. I like to punch holes in Steel around 200 rpm or so for thicker gauge stuff. I properly lubricate when drilling metal, but 500 rpm is still too high IMO. Then in stepped the Jet JDP17. It instantly won me over with its reasonable price, re-designed form, motor, body, and super easy speed changes. It's also got the adjustable LED light and the X act laser. Jet also boast excellent customer service and they aren't stingy with their 5 year home shop warranty.. It should arrive in the next 2-3 days. I can't wait. I've wanted one of these for years! http://www.jettools.com/us/en/p/17-drill-press/716300 I also ordered a starter set of Norseman Mag bits in large sizes: http://www.harryepstein.com/index.php/norseman-4-pc-big-drill-bit-set.html?gclid=CPT3-_vUjMgCFQooaQodHC4BoA Like I said this summer, I'll not have to go to a machine shop to have a hole drilled EVER again!
