This 18 in. Jet is an excellent value for woodworkers looking to step up to a big bandsaw.
The Jet JWBS-18QT ($1,600) is designed for hobbyist or small pro shops. It has 18-in. throat and 12-in. resaw capacities, and an innovative and very stout triangular-shaped steel frame. It’s available with either a 1-3/4 hp, 120-volt motor or a 3 hp, 240-volt motor. A 21-in. table provides a good-sized work surface. The fence locks securely and can be used on either side of the blade. You can also angle it slightly to compensate for blade drift.
