New Band Saw
Nice saw. With the riser block built in, the inaccuracy is taken out. Makes for a stronger saw support as well.

Would liked to have the motor in the enclosed stand, and to have the belts beside the lower wheel makes me wonder about getting material in the belt grooves. The pinion drive to elevate and lower the upper blade guides is a good idea. The locking mechanism is also easy to use and a good idea. The roller guides make using the saw easier and more accurate and help to keep the blade cool and longer wearing.

The blade tension mechanism is the worst part of the saw. The knob on the top is horribly hard and awkward to tighten or loosen. The tension lever is much to short and is a knuckle buster if you aren't careful. Looks like it was designed by a first year design student or a drunk engineer who hates woodworkers. The turn knob could be much larger and easier to turn. Also, the tension lever needs to be longer and easier to position. This is absolutely the worst part of the saw and the worst design I have ever seen.

The lower blade rollers are tough to adjust but that is to be expected with the small amount of space that they are given.

After just three weeks of use resawing some material, I have noticed that the lower thrust bearing is developing a groove where it contacts the blade. I will see how good the 5 year warranty is very soon.

When I ordered the saw it was supposed to include a rip fence. When I called Jet, I was immediately sent a rip fence. Bravo for their fast response!

EXCELLENT BANDSAW
TERRIFIC BANDSAW, [...]. NICE DESIGN WITH CAST IRON WHEELS, POLY-BELT DRIVE, SOLID BASE, RACK AND PINION BLADE GUIDE ADJUST AND TENSION RELEASE. THE TENSION RELEASE WORKS FINE, JUST USE A LITTLE COMMON SENSE WHEN GRIPPING IT. A LITTLE TOP HEAVY DUE TO THE HEIGHT, BUT A LARGER BASE WITH 80 POUNDS IN THE BOTTOM CABINET SOLVED THOSE ISSUES. IT RUNS SO SMOOTH YOU BARELY KNOW IT'S ON. A GREAT SAW FOR THE MONEY.

Solid Machine, Quality Shows in Places
I've only had this saw for a short time, but I can offer some initial impressions. First off, you will absolutely need two people to set it up. It's heavy. My first thoughts are that most of the construction of the saw is excellent; very sturdy, good design choices, quality materials. The few things I noticed are the wheel doors feel flimsy and the tension adjust knob is poorly placed (these two things are very minor and don't have too great an impact on the overall quality). The table is excellent (perfectly flat and a good dry lubricant seems to be applied). The blade that comes with the saw is superb and once set up properly, cuts thick hardwood easily. I love all the adjustments to the blade, you can really dial in your preferences. It's easy to adjust the blade height and I much prefer the bearings it has to the traditional blade guide blocks. Overall an excellent saw.

Great Band Saw
I purchased this about a year ago. So far I can't complain about it. When I went to see this saw at a local retailer the salesman showed me a Powermatic of about the same size saying it was so quiet. I then had him plug in this one which was right across the aisle from the Powermatic. He told me it would be noisy compared to the Powermatic. Turned it on and you can't even tell its running. That sold me on it. I've resawed some wood with a larger blade I bought for it and it cut like a hot knife through butter. If you want a band saw with large resaw capabilities this is it.

JWBS-14DXPRO, 14 in. Deluxe Pro Bandsaw
She runs smooth, and quite. No vibrations, worth every dollar that I paid for her. Assy was easy, Took less than an hour by myself. (use a 4:1 block & tackle and a "A" frame ladder to place the saw on the stand).
Had a small shipping problem, but a call to cpo fixed that right up. I am happy with the way and quickness the problem was solved.

A QUALITY BANDSAW!
A quality bandsaw with nice features. I would suggest that Jet include a fence with this bandsaw, however they do not. I bought a Kreg fence and it fits perfectly and would highly recommend the Kreg fence instead of the Jet fence. When time to assemble this bandsaw you will need to get someone to help you due to the weight of this machine. I highly recommend this machine to the woodworker that only wants to buy this machine one time! It will last a lifetime!!!

Great saw right out of the box
This is a ready good saw for someone that uses a variety of different types and sizes of wood. Since I got my saw I have been cutting everything from 3/4" to 9" thick, mainly black walnut. The saw has plenty of power for any project I have. I would recommend adding some weight to the base stand since it is somewhat top heavy. Also, I would have liked to have the rip fence and miter gauge included.

Worth it if its on sale
First, I bought the saw and resaw fence on a 15% off sale which made it worth the price. Its a powerful full-featured saw that is compact in size. It runs smooth and true with very little vibration and is quiet. The table if flat and true. The saw cuts well, but I haven't really done much serious resawing so I can't comment much on that aspect of its performance. Based on previous experience with other saws, its seems like it has the right build to do a good job at resawing with the right blade set-up. The quality, fit and fare of the guards and castings are just okay--fully functional but not as nice looking as they could be. Set up was relatively simple except lifting the saw onto the base is impossible for one person due to its weight. It is heavy even for two (unless at least one of you is a body builder) because it is awkward for the second person to find a place on the saw structure to make the lift. Be careful not to lift it on a non-structural part that might be damaged during the lift. Set up was fairly easy except on mine, the upper blade guard/guide bearing assembly was not plumb to the blade through the full range of cut height. When the back bearing was adjusted perfectly to the blade at the maximum height of cut, as the assembly was lowered the back bearing would translate away from the blade so at a cut height of about two inches above the table, there was a good 1/8th of an inch of additional gap to the back from the blade. Readjusting this took a lot of trial and error with micro adjustments of set screws that are not precise. Eventually, I got it close to perfect, but it took a lot of screwing around with the set screws (pun intended). The blade tension knob is a bit hard to turn--it takes a lot of torque so the knob should either be a larger diameter or the screw threads should be acme to make it easier to turn. I bought the Jet resaw fence for it too which was fairly pricey for what I would consider average quality, but it seems to work fine. The blade that comes with it is poor quality so I would suggest replacing it immediately. At this price point, it seems like it should have come with a miter gauge, but it doesn't. I already own a Jet miter gauge that came with a disk sander I purchased a while back and it is compatible with the saw, so its not a problem for me. I would not buy the Jet miter gauge separately--it is way too expensive for a very rudimentary gauge. I would recommend spending a little more on a quality miter gauge (e.g. Incra). Shipping was free and well coordinated--Old Dominion brought it on a truck with a lift gate and pallet jack and wheeled the well-packaged unit on a pallet up my driveway and into my garage. This was very convenient.

A few weeks later I saw the higher quality Laguna saw at another retailer with more features on sale--for not that much more money it is definitely a better saw (better fit and fare and more precision in the adjustments). I had slight regrets; however, I would have had to spend a little more money and shipping wasn't free either (I could have picked it up with my pickup but its an even heavier monster to handle). Its also a much larger footprint and would have taken up more floor space in my shop.

Overall, I am satisfied with the Jet saw. It works well at a reasonable price (if you catch a sale). I feel good about the purchase after using it some.
