Designed to handle a range of projects with ease, this bandsaw offers a six-inch resaw capacity for cutting larger pieces of wood, 13-1/2-inch blade-to-frame capacity, and a generously sized, off-set cast-iron table. Measuring 15 x 15 inches, this durable table provides you with more work area in front of the blade, giving you the flexibility to handle material of various sizes and shapes.
1-1/4 HP Motor and Poly V-Belt Drive for Powerful, Quiet Performance
The JWBS-14DX owes its robust performance to a completely enclosed, fan-cooled 1-1/4 HP motor that makes short work of wood measuring up to six inches thick. And thanks to the poly V-belt drive, operation is noticeably quieter than other models.
Cast-Iron Frame for and Balanced Wheels for Smooth Operation
To help ensure smooth, stable operation, the JWBS-14DX features a heavy-duty cast-iron frame and sturdy steel construction for strength and rigidity. Rough and tough cast iron also greatly reduces vibration for more consistent performance. For additional protection against jarring vibrations, this bandsaw has precision computer balanced, nine-spoke band wheels to allow for accurate blade tracking job after job.
Guides Reduce Friction for Longer Blade Life
Built to last, the JWBS-14DX comes equipped with features that help prevent damaging wear and tear from compromising its performance. First, the micro-adjustable lower blade guide reduces friction for longer blade life. Additionally, graphite-impregnated polymer blade guides with roller bearing thrust guides ensure quicker set-up and a cooler running blade, which means less chance of heat damage ruining the blade.
Finally, a four-inch dust port allows for direct connection of a dust collection system so debris and dust don't harm the machine--or the operator.
Quick Tension Handle and Knob Tracking for Simple Adjustments
Extremely user friendly, this bandsaw makes adjustments quickly and easily via a single knob tracking adjustment that simplifies the blade tracking process. It also features a quick tension handle that makes for fast blade changes and then allows you to immediately resume the same bandsaw tension.
The JWBS-14DX arrives completely pre-wired, with both a rigid, one-piece welded stand that requires no assembly, and a 3/8-inch, 6.0 TPI woodworking blade, so you're ready to start cutting immediately.
The JWBS-14DX measures 26 x 68 x 19 inches (WxHxD), weighs 190 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.
