Product Description

Amazon.com

With its simple, straightforward design and powerful features, the JET 708115K JWBS-14CS 14-Inch 1 HP Woodworking Bandsaw with Graphite Guide Blocks is ideal for home shop use by serious hobbyists or craftspeople. This handy tool includes a fully enclosed stand and dust chute, requires minimal set-up time out of the box, and provides years of solid, heavy-duty use.


The JET JWBS-14CS 14-Inch Woodworking Bandsaw with Graphite Guide Blocks offers:
  • A powerful 1 HP motor that delivers 3,000 strokes per minute for efficient cutting
  • 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.

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.

What's in the Box
Stand top with motor support plate, four stand legs, two cross braces (short), two cross braces (long), one stand support plate, one saw body, one table, one motor, one V-belt, one pulley cover, two table lock knobs, one table pin, one trunnion support bracket, one fastener package, manual, and warranty card.

From the Manufacturer

Giving you room to maneuver, no matter what the project, this 14-inch band saw has a capacity of 6 by 13-1/2 inches and is packed with well thought-out features: The table tilts 45 degrees to the right and 10 degrees to the left so that you can shift angles and directions easily; a V-groove blade guide ensures consistent and positive alignment, and the graphite-impregnated polymer JET blocks in the blade guides promise quicker setup and a cooler-running blade. The 1 hp, one-phase, 115/230-volt motor can get a 1/8-to-3/4-inch blade moving at 3,000 sfpm. The extra-large 15-by-15-inch cast-iron worktable offsets to provide you with a larger work area in front of the blade. Standard equipment includes the stand, 2-inch dust chute, and a 3/8-inch band saw blade.

I've owned this band saw for a year. Before purchasing, I researched others, including Delta, Grizzly, Ridgid, and General. I've written this review to answer the kind of questions I had when I was still shopping for a band saw!
Assembly is simple. The manual contains photos of each step, with hardware and parts clearly visible. Aligning the upper and lower wheels is no problem -- they were aligned perfectly out of the box. Installing the rip fence is also easy -- all the mounting hardware are designed for this machine.
In your daily band saw setup routine, there are five main steps: (1) Install blade; (2) Tension blade; (3) "track" blade; (4) adjust blade guard; (5) adjust guides. These are typical steps in setting up any band saw, but the Jet is easier than other 14" saws.

Installing and/or removing blades on the Jet 14" is easy. The upper and lower guides loosen up, and the blade slips out through the table without a problem. When installing a new blade, it's easy to guide it into the blade guard, mount it on the two wheels, and center it. Hint: when installing a blade, make sure the teeth are pointing DOWNward. Every new band saw owner installs a band saw blade upside down once.
With your blade centered on the wheels, use the tension knob to tighten the blade to the correct level. Jet designed the tension knob so it is above the wheel cover. This sounds like a small detail, but other brands position the tension knob so you bang your knuckles against the metal as you turn it -- very annoying. There's a tension indicator showing blade width. According to the manufacturer, you can use blades from 1/8" to 3/4", but 1/2" is the widest I've used.
With the blade tensioned, adjust the "tracking" (removes any blade wobble).

I purchased the Jet 14" bandsaw almost a year ago, use it almost daily, and it is going strong. It is used about 80% of the time resawing walnut, cherry and exotic woods like purpleheart, yellowheart and paduak. I am very satisfied with the peformance and repeat precision of the bandsaw. I just got done resawing 1/16" walnut blanks. Resawed the blanks into 3/32", then put them thru the Performax (Jet) Drum sander, and now have a precise thin stock 1/16" walnut blank for overlays and inlays! No high or low spots, just consistant precise thickness from the bandsaw.
The setup was simple, took about 2 hours, the manual is very self explainitory and easy to follow. I would suggest having a helper available, the base is very heavy. If you think you might ever put the bandsaw on a mobile base, do it now. For later would mean doing the heavy lifting all over again. Having the bandsaw on a mobile base allows for more options in your workshop as to the positioning and placement of the tools as you as actually using them and just having them sit there waiting to be used.
Blade changes are easy, taking less than 5 minutes to reduce tension on the wheels, remove blade, insert new blade and reposition the wheel tension to the proper level. I would throw the blade that came with the bandsaw away, and use either Timberwolf of Lennox carbide tipped blades. The Lennox 3/4" blades are perfect for resawing. I have not had must luck or quality production results from the Delta blades.
There is very little vibration in the machine, the powerful 1 hp motor cuts thru the purleheart with precision.
Are there better bandsaws out there ? There sure is, but not at this price. I am very satisfied with the Jet 14" bandsaw's performance and precision!

I just purchased the JET JWBS-14CSW Band Saw and sold my 4 yr old Grizzly G1019 14" Band Saw. After using the Grizzly for 4 years I can assure you this JET band saw is in a class all by its self. The Grizzly was an ok band saw for the price, but suffers from poor craftsmanship, proper wheel balance, difficult to keep blade in track and vibration. Getting a true cut was impossible. The JET band saw was easy to set up, took about 2 hours. The manual is easy to understand. The first thing I purchased with the saw was a "Link Belt"; all my power tools have the Link Belt. During set-up I used "liquid lock-tight" on all the bolts and screws (for assembly parts only) to ensure no loose hardware down the road. After set up was complete I was truly impressed with the very low to non-existent vibration. I can turn it on and balance a nickel on edge. The quality of craftsmanship, to include wheels, tires, guides, solid base piece, large tabletop, and the fine tune adjustment knobs for all the blade adjustments make for a "TOP QUALITY" saw for the price. This is not the only JET TOOL in my wood shop; I also have the Bench Top Mortise machine and 6" Jointer. I look forward to many years of use and obtaining quality woodworking results. Thanks JET keep up the good work.........

I've had the Jet 14" bandsaw for about eight months, and use it almost daily. I have the riser block and extender kit to increase its resaw capacity.
The first thing I would recommend to anyone who buys this saw is to replace the "cool block" type blade guides with roller guides. I just have the relatively affordable off-brand rollers that fit right in Jet's guide holders, and these improved blade vibration and reduced deflection substantially.
Also, buy good blades. I've been satisfied with Olsen, Timberwolf, and others but the premium blades don't cost that much more and do seem to improve the cut.
Be careful during assembly. Jet cheaps out on the quality of nuts and bolts. Though I'm not particularly strong, I managed to twist the heads right off three bolts during assembly; one is still in place today, headless.
The Jet folks really try to help if there's a problem. I needed a part that was back-ordered and they sent a whole assembly containing the part to avoid delay. Too bad there were no extra bolts in the package!
Dust collection on this unit is a joke. Be sure you have an ambient air cleaner or an outdoor opening near this saw so you don't end up with a lungful of sawdust.
All adjustments of blade guides can be done easily, from the table top, without tools. You look through the insert hole to adjust the bottom ones. This may not be true of the more expensive roller guide kits - if it's important to you, check.
The table is solid and it's easy to adjust the tilt. Fence is nicely square but can't be mounted at an angle for sawing veneer. Measuring using the standard fence is impossible. You will have to use a ruler or tape measure each time.
