Editor's Review: JWBS-14DX 14-in. Bandsaw

by Roland Johnson

review date: October 29, 2009

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. The Jet is an excellent value for woodworkers looking to step up to a big bandsaw.
