The JET JWBS-18
18-Inch Resaw Woodworking
- A powerful, 1-3/4 HP TEFC motor for reliable performance
- Use with bandsaw blades ranging from 1/8 inch and 1-1/2 inches
- A ball bearing guide system for accuracy and dependability
- Large cast-iron handwheels for quick, accurate adjustments
High Capacity and Large Table for Flexibility
Featuring a powerful 1-3/4 HP motor and a wide range of intuitive features, the JWBS-18 delivers quick, accurate cuts.
Designed to provide you with the capabilities and flexibility you need to tackle jobs both big and small, the 710750 takes bandsaw blades sized between 1/8 inch and 1-1/2 inches to cover any application, and it offers a 12-1/4-inch depth resaw capacity for cutting large pieces of wood, slicing veneers, and trimming book-matched panels. For added flexibility, the generously sized cast-iron table measures 19 x 19 inches, which gives you plenty of work support for a variety of jobs.
Tool-Free Adjustment, Rigid Guide Post, and Rip Fence Increase Productivity
When it's time to start cutting, the tool-free guide adjustment system makes set-up quick and easy. While you're working, the rigid guide post (measuring 1.0 x 1.0 inches) keeps the blade cutting in line, and Jet's exclusive quick-release, precision T-square-style rip fence with resaw post helps you achieve the straightest, most accurate cuts.
Ball bearing Guide System, Dust Port, and Cast-Iron Wheels for Durability
To help reduce vibrations and enhance tool life, the 710750 comes complete with a ball bearing guide system that cuts down on friction, and balanced, cast iron wheels equipped with vulcanized rubber tires for easy tracking. Additionally, a four-inch diameter dust port lets you attach your dust collection system directly to where the dust is created, for a clean work surface, and a reduction of wear-and-tear causing debris.
Safety Features for Protection and Accuracy
When it comes to safety and accuracy, the 710750 offers a host of protective features that help enhance performance. First, a blade tracking adjustment window lets you view your blade position on the wheel tire. Next, a built-in cutting height scale and upper blade guide adjustment easily sets the blade guide height above the table for proper wood clearance. Finally, independently adjustable guides and support bearings positively support different blade sizes so you can use the right blade for the job.
User-Friendly Design for Easy Operation
The 710750 also boasts user-friendly operation. Large cast-iron handwheels make smooth, easy tension and upper guide adjustments, and the blade tension scale lets you select exact blade tension for widths between 1/8-inch and 1-1/2 inches. For added convenience, a single tracking adjustment knob simplifies the blade tracking process, and a lower wheel brush helps to eliminate sawdust buildup on rubber tires.
The 710750 measures 31.5 x 80 x 20.5 inches (WxHxD), weighs 450 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.
