JET/PM 3000hr sale for the tablesaws and bandsaws kicked in today. With the sale, 18" QT-3 became $1399 w/free shipping which happens to be slightly cheaper than G0514X2 19" ($1395 +$95). In terms of cutting capacity, they are equals despite of the 18" vs 19" badges. Both are 3HP. G has a tabletop 7+" longer than Jet. Warranty for G is one year while Jet has five years.
Both costing about the same, which way would you go if you were to be shopping for this type of bandsaw now? As far as I can tell, this is the cheapest ever this bandsaw from Jet came down too. Also, I understand that this QT version had replaced the X version making it "stiffer". Is that correct? Thanks for the input.
