Woodworking machinery

Gerhard:
I am looking at buying proper woodworking machinery.

I would be looking to get:

* Table saw
* Jointer (maybe with integrated thicknesser)
* Miter saw
* Dust extractor
I want good quality machinery at reasonable prices. I was thinking of the JET JTS-600 http://www.strandhardware.co.za/strandNew/index.php?pid=gallery&scode=WMJTS60/A and other JET equipment. I want something better than DIY class, but it doesn't have to be heavy industrial either. Something in the enthusiast DIY / light industrial category would do.

Where in the JHB area is a reputable place to buy machinery such as this and get advice I can trust? Hardware Centre? http://www.woodworkmachines.co.za/? http://www.gfpmachines.com/? I have never been to any of these so I have no idea what is going on there, just found them with Google.

I'd appreciate your recommendations.

They are not cheap, but you can also try CMC Machines.

Alternatively try Gumtree.

I have kitted myself out with mostly Jet stuff for the big machines.  Love the brand - good quality and rugged.  Will last you a lifetime if you look after them.

Purchased mine from Hardware Centre in Randburg.

Cheers,
Ian.

Gerhard:
Thanks guys.

@Ian

If you don't mind, can you tell me which Jet models you got?
