I bought mine from a store, so there was no shipment issue. The packaging seemed adequate to me, but since mine never went through a residential delivery service, I can't really tell if it would have survived the journey or not. The box for my saw was strong and in-tact, and the Styrofoam padding seems also strong and nothing was broken or out of order inside the box.
I appreciate the way the saw was mostly assembled in the box. There was some minor assembly required, mostly the base, but not much. And nothing requiring very much skill or effort. With a little tweaking and measuring, I was able to get the table flat enough and true enough to the blade to satisfy me.
The only real problem I had with the saw was the tire on the bottom wheel. It seemed to be stretched out or something, so it wouldn't stay on the wheel. It wasn't terribly stretched out, and I couldn't tell that it wasn't right until the saw had been running for a minute or two. It slowly got looser and looser until it pulled the blade off. It was pretty easy to fix though, with just a couple of dots of contact cement. Now it runs fine. Though I would prefer a brand new saw not require contact cement on the tires.
Overall, I think the saw is very good, and I am absolutely happy I bought it. But there are some obvious cut corners. Which I think is to be expected in a budget-level saw.Read more ›
However, the return/replacement process with Amazon was remarkably easy and uncomplicated. I simply logged on to Amazon, clicked a few buttons and within seconds had printed out a return shipping form. I was not charged for the return shipping and a UPS driver arrived the next day to pick it up. A few days after that a replacement saw arrived. The shipping carton for the second saw was in slightly better shape but I checked most of the moving parts before taking it out of the box and would recommend others to do the same. But even so, the plastic guard over the motor housing was crushed and the plastic end cap for the fence was broken off.
Since I didn't think these things would affect the performance of the saw, I tried it out and was pleasantly surprised. The saw almost effortlessly resawed a rough piece of 2X4 into a nice 3/4 inch thick board, with minimal saw marks. It also maneuvered around some rather tight turns. I think I will keep this one.
I was very excited to put together my new bandsaw, which I received a few days before Christmas. I travel for business and had a few days to get to a few woodworking products during Christmas vacation. Well, after unpacking and assembling the JET bandsaw, it looks like my woodworking will have to wait and my vacation time will be spent on other things, thanks to the lack of quality and craftsmanship provided by JET.
First of all the bandsaw has a crack in the base where it attaches to the stand. Not a big deal, or so I thought. This causes the bandsaw to not sit level and also provides for a very unstable frame. Not only is this poor quality, but also could pose a serious safety risk.
After assembling the cast iron table and mounting it to the bandsaw, I found that no matter how I adjusted it, it does not sit level and will not stay secured with the adjustable angle mechanism. There is no apparent way to tighten the mechanism either, without disassembling the entire bandsaw, which sounds fun and probably will void the warranty which is probably going to be used repeatedly judging from the quality of this bandsaw.
If I had it to do over again, I would avoid this bandsaw and opt for the Grizzly ($475, plus shipping $75=$550) which is much larger, more powerful, and I can't emphasize this last part enough, MUCH, MUCH, MUCH better quality.Read more ›

This is one of those moments where I wish Amazon had half stars. Properly I would give this saw 4.5 stars. 4 is too low. 5 is out of the question. Read morePublished 16 months ago by JMA
