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.

  • A 15 x 15-inch offset table for more work area
  • A cast-iron frame construction for strength, rigidity, and reduced vibration
  • A fully enclosed stand and built-in dust chute





Graphite-impregnated polymer blade guides with roller bearing thrust guides offer quick, accurate set-up. View larger.
Large Tilting Table and High Resaw Capacity for Flexibility
The JWBS-14CS gives you plenty of space and the necessary capacity to take on a range of projects. It offers a six-inch depth resaw capacity for cutting larger pieces of wood, 6 x 13-1/2-inch cutting capacity, and a generously sized, 15 x 15-inch offset cast-iron table for more work area in front of the blade. The table also tilts 45 degrees to the right and 10 degrees to the left to accommodate a range of materials and jobs.

Cast-Iron Frame and Balanced Wheels for Vibration-Free Operation
Boasting cast-iron frame construction for strength and rigidity, as well as reduced vibration, the JWBS-14CS provides smooth operation for optimum control and consistent results. Precision computer balanced wheels also spin without vibration, ensuring accurate blade tracking.

Heat- and Friction-Reducing Blades for Longer Tool Life
Designed to stand up to years of heavy use, the JWBS-14CS features a micro-adjustable lower blade guide to reduce friction for longer blade life, as well as graphite-impregnated polymer blade guides with roller bearing thrust guides for both quicker set-up and a cooler running blade. By reducing heat, these guides help prevent damage and wear and tear that can compromise the resiliency of the machine.

Durable Metal Housing and Quick-Connect Plug for Durability and Ease-of-Use
The JWBS-14CS boasts heavy-gauge metal housing and a powder coating (rather than paint), which helps the saw hold up to frequent use without chipping or flaking. Another helpful feature is the quick-connect electrical plug, so you don't have to follow long cords to their outlets before each blade change.

Powerful 1 HP Motor for Fast Results
The JWBS-14CS owes its robust performance to a 1 HP engine that moves the blade at a speedy 3,000 strokes per minute for fast, efficient results. And thanks to the included 3/8-inch, 6.0 TPI woodworking blade, you can start cutting right out of the box.

Safe, User-Friendly Design
Designed to be as user-friendly as it is powerful, this bandsaw comes complete with a four-inch dust port that allows for direct connection of a dust collection system, which is key to keeping your workspace clear so your visibility isn't impaired by debris. Additionally, a single knob tracking adjustment simplifies the blade tracking process for safe operation.

The JWBS-14CS measures 26 x 68 x 19 inches (WxHxL), weighs 185 pounds, and is backed by a five-year warranty.

Solid, Sturdy Backbone for Vibration-Free Operation
A huge iron casting provides a solid foundation that keeps the PWBS-14CS rigid and vibration free.The heavy-gauge, steel base cabinet adds to the unit's overall stability and provides a solid,vibration-absorbing base for the motor. Because dust collection does not pass through the base cabinet,its interior remains virtually dust free, reducing routine maintenance while enhancing the long life of the motor and drive belt.

To help improve visibility and the air quality of your shop, the PWBS-14CS features a four-inch diameterport cast into the lower housing, directly below the blade, for effective dust evacuation. And tokeep the cut line clearly visible, an integral air pump supplies pressurized air to an adjustable nozzleattached to the upper blade guide, resulting in a chip blower that provides a clear line.

Extra-Large Work Table
To effectively handle projects both big and small, the PWBS-14CS features an extra-large,two piece cast iron table with a tilting section measuring 15.0 x 15.0 inches and a fixedextension measuring 15.0 x 5.0 inches for a total working surface area of 15.0 x 20.0 inches.

Optimum Power and Drive
The PWBS-14CS is powered by a one and one-half-horsepower TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled)industrial-style motor that comes wired for 115-volt operation, but can be converted to 230 volts.The motor power is delivered through a set of precision-machined multi-groove pulleys that aredriven by a poly-V drive belt system, known for its smooth, efficient transmission of power withvery little temperature buildup.

For their part, the cast-iron drive wheels are fully machined,painted, and fitted with high quality tires and then dynamically balanced to ensure smooth operation.

Easy Adjustments
With the PWBS-14CS, adjustments are never a problem, due to the blade width markings on thetensioning block for blade widths from one-eighth- to three-quarter-inch. The infiniteadjusting system also lets users dial in the correct tension for specialty blades that mayrequire non-standard tension settings.

This model comes with the legendary, Carter quick-release handle assembly that features three positions:full tension, relaxed tension, and full release. Users can move the Carter between all three positionswithout losing the tension setting, potentially lengthening the life of the blade.

User-Friendly Features
The PWBS-14CS also includes an exclusive design, quick-release, precision T-square-style rip fence withfour-inch re-saw attachment; 60-watt adjustable lamp (bulb not included) built into the body to providedirect light on blade and work piece while cutting; and a full six-inch under-guide capacity with 13-1/2-inch width capacity.

Wilton 8201K 14-Inch 1-Horsepower Metal and Wood Cutting Bandsaw, 115-Volt 1-Phase

Wilton 8201K 14-Inch 1-Horsepower Metal and Wood Cutting Bandsaw, 115-Volt 1-Phase Lowest used price: $1,200.00
List price: $1,392.00
Brand: Wilton
Model: 8201K

825-8201K This item features: -Cast iron frame. -Solid, one-piece steel base for extra stability. -Conveniently located on/off switch. -Blade Width: 3/8 in. -Blade Length: 92 1/2 in. -Blade Thickness: 0.0250 in. -Blade Speed: 39 sfpm [Min], 3300 sfpm [Max]. -Speed: 1725 rpm. -Power Cap.: 1 hp. -Voltage: 115.00 V. -Phase: Single. -Floor to Table Top: 68 in. -Tilt: 45 , 10 . -Includes: Miter Gauge, Saw Blade, Dust Chute, Adjustable Table. -Wt.: 280 lb. -Price is for 1 Each.

Whether your needs are accurate curved cuts, resawing or just straight cuts, you'll be pleased with this Wilton bandsaw, because it handles all those tasks like a pro. With a full 6 inches under the blade guide when fully raised (you can add the optional 12-inch riser if you choose) and 13-1/2 inches from the blade to the frame, capacity is no problem, letting you easily create tight curves in plywood or resaw oak or maple.

Assembly is fairly quick and easy, aside from a little heavy lifting, and involves mounting the cast-iron saw frame to the lower steel cabinet and aligning the pulleys. The closed cabinet is well-machined and solid as a rock.

The table tilts for beveled cuts with a 45-degree range to the right and 10 degrees to the left. It's easily done, but we'd like to see the under-table gauge enlarged for readability's sake. And each time you tilt the table, be sure to reset the table leveling mechanism when setting it back to 0.

A 3/4-inch blade on this machine does a superb job of resawing, with almost no vibration. With a 1/8-inch blade mounted, tight-radius curves are no problem. Blade changes take a bit of time and effort, but that's the nature of the band saw.

The miter gauge slot is a standard size, letting you upgrade to a super after-market gauge if you choose to. We like this saw because of wide speed range, enabling you to cut a wide variety of material in addition to wood: plastic, Bakelite, composites, ferrous and non-ferrous metals. To change speed, you'll have to move the clutch and reposition the drive belt, not a difficult process. Doing that gives you options that range from 40 feet per minute for steel up to 3,000 feet per minute for wood.

And while this isn't a huge feature, we still want to mention that we appreciate the way Wilton's surround the power-on button with a molded guard so it can't be turned on accidentally.

The dust chute is a nice addition, and connected to an extraction system or vacuum, does a darned good job of keeping the mess to a minimum. In all, this is an extremely well-made, hard-working that saw will serve you well if you take care of it.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

Features:

  • Specially designed for cutting wood, plastic, bakelite, composites, ferrous and non-ferrous metals,
  • 1-horsepower motor for super fast cuts
  • Cast iron frame for optimal durability
  • Solid, one-piece steel base for extra stability
  • Conveniently located on/off switch for faster production


Delta 28-348 14-Inch 1-1/2 Horsepower Metal and Wood Cutting Band Saw, 115-Volt 1 Phase

Delta 28-348 14-Inch 1-1/2 Horsepower Metal and Wood Cutting Band Saw, 115-Volt 1 Phase List price: $3,206.54
Brand: Delta
Model: 28-348

Whether you'll use it mainly for resawing or for creative curved cuts, you'll appreciate everything about this workhorse band saw from its rock-solid construction to its micrometer adjustment for ball bearing blade support and the blade guide blocks that assure absolute accuracy. The cast-iron table is a generous 16 by 16 inches and easily tilts 45 degrees right and 9 degrees left for bevel cuts. The max cut capacity is 6-1/4-inch thick, and even at that, with the 1-1/2 hp motor, you won't experience any bogging. Blade change, the least favorite job of band-saw owners, is really not so bad: There's a side take-out slot for the blade, and you won't even have to remove the rip fence guide rails when you're changing blades. We're impressed, too, with the Veri-Set quick-index tensioning system, designed to get you back to cutting wood and not fumbling with blade tension. Cutting brass, then steel? The multi-step pulley makes it a snap to change speeds for different materials. We didn't hook up the press to a dust-collection system, so we can't vouch for how well the integral port pulls sawdust, but the rest of its features would make any woodworker happy.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste


JET 708749 JWBS-16 16-Inch 1-1/2-Horsepower Woodworking Bandsaw with Guide Blocks, 115-Volt 1-Phase

JET 708749 JWBS-16 16-Inch 1-1/2-Horsepower Woodworking Bandsaw with Guide Blocks, 115-Volt 1-Phase Lowest new price: $1,895.00
List price: $1,074.00
Brand: Jet
Model: 708749

Motor Voltage: 115/230V

This 16-inch band saw brings the high quality of construction and design found in JET's 18- and 20-inch resawing band saws into the price range of smaller shops and serious home woodworkers. This saw's most prominent benefit is the one-piece, dual tapered column design that offers superior rigidity and strength, minimizes vibration, and keeps cuts clean, smooth, and accurate. The saw has a powerful, totally enclosed, fan-cooled, 1-1/2-horsepower motor with a blade speed of 3,000 sfpm. There's a nice large cast-iron worktable (17 by 17 inches) that tilts 45 degrees to the right and 10 degrees to the left. There's also a T-slot for a miter gauge, and while a rip fence doesn't come standard with this model, JET makes a good one that can be purchased separately and easily installed. We like the smooth precision afforded by the rack-and-pinion upper-blade guide adjustment and the generous 10-1/4-inch-maximum cutting height it can dial up. While we'd prefer the roller bearing guides found on JET's 18- and 20-inch models (that guide set can be purchased separately and added later), the block guides used on this saw do offer plenty of support and low friction, and help fit the saw into shops with a tighter budget. This tool's versatility just keeps on going, accommodating 123-inch blades from 1/8 to 1-1/2 inches wide for equally smooth curve cutting or resawing. For the price, you'd have a hard time fitting more saw than this in your shop without making a serious compromise in quality. --Brian Trinen

Features:

  • 16-inch band saw with a powerful 1-1/2 hp TEFC 115-volt motor

The JET JWBS-18
18-Inch Resaw Woodworking
Bandsaw offers:
  • A powerful, 1-3/4 HP TEFC motor for reliable performance
  • Use with bandsaw blades ranging from 1/8 inch and 1-1/2 inches
  • A ball bearing guide system for accuracy and dependability
  • Large cast-iron handwheels for quick, accurate adjustments





Featuring a powerful 1-3/4 HP motor and a wide range of intuitive features, the JWBS-18 delivers quick, accurate cuts.
High Capacity and Large Table for Flexibility
Designed to provide you with the capabilities and flexibility you need to tackle jobs both big and small, the 710750 takes bandsaw blades sized between 1/8 inch and 1-1/2 inches to cover any application, and it offers a 12-1/4-inch depth resaw capacity for cutting large pieces of wood, slicing veneers, and trimming book-matched panels. For added flexibility, the generously sized cast-iron table measures 19 x 19 inches, which gives you plenty of work support for a variety of jobs.

Tool-Free Adjustment, Rigid Guide Post, and Rip Fence Increase Productivity
When it's time to start cutting, the tool-free guide adjustment system makes set-up quick and easy. While you're working, the rigid guide post (measuring 1.0 x 1.0 inches) keeps the blade cutting in line, and Jet's exclusive quick-release, precision T-square-style rip fence with resaw post helps you achieve the straightest, most accurate cuts.

Ball bearing Guide System, Dust Port, and Cast-Iron Wheels for Durability
To help reduce vibrations and enhance tool life, the 710750 comes complete with a ball bearing guide system that cuts down on friction, and balanced, cast iron wheels equipped with vulcanized rubber tires for easy tracking. Additionally, a four-inch diameter dust port lets you attach your dust collection system directly to where the dust is created, for a clean work surface, and a reduction of wear-and-tear causing debris.

Safety Features for Protection and Accuracy
When it comes to safety and accuracy, the 710750 offers a host of protective features that help enhance performance. First, a blade tracking adjustment window lets you view your blade position on the wheel tire. Next, a built-in cutting height scale and upper blade guide adjustment easily sets the blade guide height above the table for proper wood clearance. Finally, independently adjustable guides and support bearings positively support different blade sizes so you can use the right blade for the job.

User-Friendly Design for Easy Operation
The 710750 also boasts user-friendly operation. Large cast-iron handwheels make smooth, easy tension and upper guide adjustments, and the blade tension scale lets you select exact blade tension for widths between 1/8-inch and 1-1/2 inches. For added convenience, a single tracking adjustment knob simplifies the blade tracking process, and a lower wheel brush helps to eliminate sawdust buildup on rubber tires.

The 710750 measures 31.5 x 80 x 20.5 inches (WxHxD), weighs 450 pounds, and is covered by a five-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.
