Jet 10 inch Portable Jobsite Table Saw JBTS-10MJS

Jet portable jobsite table saw

Jet is known for making some woodworking and metalworking machinery but did you know they also make a portable jobsite table saw? The JBTS-10MJS is just that, a portable table saw you can haul out to the jobsite. Unlike the rest of their beefy stationary table saws, this unit can be carried and wheeled to your next project. It even comes with a folding stand with wheels to help you get it set up on location.

It shares many features you’d find in the portable jobsite table saw segment such as the 10 inch blade, 25 inch rip capacity, a 15 amp motor that runs on standard easily available 120V power, and folding wheeled stand. It does feature an outfeed table which isn’t found standard on many models.

Description and specs from the manufacturer:

My thoughts:

It’s price is a bit on the high side at $669, making it about $100 more than popular high end portable jobsite models from Bosch and Dewalt. It’s hard to say how it compares to those two models without testing but based on appearance and features, the Jet model is more similar to mid-range brands such as Porter Cable, Ridgid, Kobalt and I say this based on appearance only.

I’m not sure how old this model is, it’s not new if you’re wondering and Amazon has reviews dating back to 2012. With only 9 reviews on Amazon and only 5 reviews on the Home Depot site, it doesn’t seem to be a very popular model. I’ve never seen this model in any local home improvement stores and that could be one reason and the high price tag could also be another reason.

If you own one or have experience using one, please share in the comments section below your experience and thoughts on this model.

I’ve had this saw for about 10 years now. Great power and precision. Issues are the sprocket for blade height adjustment is plastic and strips easily. The two black plastic legs break off easily and the table doesn’t stand by itself when in the “stowed” sideways position. Currently the motor starts for 5 seconds and turns off. Overload issue? Trying to find some parts.
