10-Inch Blade and Operating Arm Power Through Thick Material
The 10-inch diameter blade and innovative design of the operating arm give the JMS-10SCMS tremendous cutting capacities throughout the dual bevel range. With the blade at zero degrees in both miter and bevel, the saw cuts material up to 3-5/8 inches thick and 12 inches wide. At a 45-degree miter, it handles material measuring 3-5/8 inches thick by eight inches wide. At a 45-degree left bevel, cutting capacity is 1-5/8 inches thick by 12 inches wide, or at a 45-degree right bevel, the capacity is 1-3/8 inches thick by 12 inches wide.
XACTA Laser Provides High Visibility
The JMS-10SCMS comes equipped with the patented green XACTA Laser--a Jet exclusive. This special laser emits a distinct green light that is much easier to see in bright, outdoor conditions than are the more common red colored versions. The laser is also mounted in special housing just behind the blade where it remains out of the operator's direct line of vision, but projects its finely focused alignment light across the wood in clear view.
Precision Machined Aluminum Table for Stability and Flexibility
Able to handle a wide variety of projects, the JMS-10SCMS features a precision-machined aluminum table surface that is 21 inches wide with a maximum front-to-back support area of 13 inches at the blade. Incorporated into the table are mounting bosses for securing the saw to a work surface or onto a specialty stand.
A pullout arm at the rear of the base helps stabilize the machine on a flat surface, and the circular center table surrounding the blade is precisely machined to be flat and flush with the table sections to either side. Additionally, the table extension surrounding the blade path has repositionable inserts that can be adjusted to work much like a zero clearance insert, meaning this saw gives you extraordinary flexibility, even on larger jobs.
Fully Functional, Easy-Slide Fence System
The fence system is specially designed to be fully functional with the blade at all miter and bevel angles. For added convenience, it's mounted to the base so that it can be adjusted to be perfectly square to the blade if need be, and it extends further to support the work piece on both sides. The fence also has a set of graduations engraved on its face that make setting up repetitive or specific-length cuts quick and accurate.
Ergonomic Handle and Up-Front Controls for Safety and Control
The JMS-10SCMS boasts an ergonomic, D-shaped, over-molded handle for a steady, secure, and comfortable grip. This design also gives you maximum control during cutting operations.
In addition, the controls are located right up front, so you don't have to hunt around for them as you work or reach over or behind the blade in an unsafe manner to access them. Instead, everything you need for easy operation is both within reach and directly in your line of sight.
The JMS-10SCMS measures 25.2 x 20.7 x 35.8 inches (WxHxD) and weighs 50.7 pounds. It is backed by a three-year warranty.
About JET: A History of Sharing New, Feature-Rich Products
Opened in 1958 after the founder of the company, Leslie P. Sussman, took the first Boeing Jet Airplane trip from Seattle, Washington to Japan, JET began as a small dealer that sold air hoists and trolleys out of a single hardware store in Seattle. Over the years, JET has carried everything from snowmobiles, transmitter radios, and forklifts to nylon stockings, but by the early 1970s, metalworking had become the base of their business line. And by the 1980s, JET had expanded into the realm of woodworking. Today, you'll find that JET offers a wide range of popular woodworking tools that are backed with best-in-class features and excellent service.
