    Comments about Jet 10" Band Saw w/ Stand, Model JWBS-10OS :

    I have a small shop so space is important. Would prefer a 14 inch but space was an issue . If you are slow and steady you can cut most anything. I re cut 2" red oak for a jig and it did what I needed Very pleased also used it to make small round cut outs of maple worked well

    This saw is very difficult to adjust. Seriously underpowered. Stalls cutting pen blanks. I would not recommend this to anyone.

    Comments about Jet 10" Band Saw w/ Stand, Model JWBS-10OS :

    I did a lot of research on 10 inch saws before buying this one. One of major annoyances I found when reading reviews on this saw was people said it was under powered and and then would describe that they were trying to use it for jobs the saw wasn't intended for. Reviewers would compare to the larger more powerful saws and then trash this one because it didn't measure up. This saw is a good hobby saw or light home improvement saw. It works great for what I need it for. I carve and need to cut out rough blanks and I do not have a lot of room for a larger saw. This saw doesn't take up much room and is built solid. I don't expect it t be perfectly accurate since I am just cutting rough blanks to carve. I have found it to be fairly accurate though and I saw a tip about using a different type blade to help with more accurate cuts. I've used this saw for about 6 month now and I am very impressed with the quality. It is much better than those plastic cased saws you find at other stores. After 6 months of use I have not run into any problems.

    Comments about Jet 10" Band Saw w/ Stand, Model JWBS-10OS :

    Most of my work is out on jobsites so my shop is small (2 car garage) and space is limited so I opted for a smaller saw to replace and old, bigger Craftsman. Out of the box it assembled fast and setup was simple. After the first few cuts I was unhappy with the cutting speed, power and quality of cut and did not use it much. I bought a different, better blade and it is like night and day. Now I have no power or speed complaints and for it's size is is great. And now I would recommend it. I use a better fence and mitre gauge too but only because I had them. Blades are not something you wil find easily but I get mine through the internet.

    Comments about Jet 10" Band Saw w/ Stand, Model JWBS-10OS :

    To say that it is underpowered is not accurate, it stalls cutting 3/8" wood for knife scales, or 5/8" pen blanks. I had a cheap Emerson 3" max cut ( no longer made) band saw that cut better, but wore out after 20 years. I had much higher hopes for this unit, but they were misplaced. I wish I could return it, as it sits unused in my shop taking up space. I plan to replace it as soon as I can justify to my wife why I am spending more money to buy a second new saw in 3 months.

    Comments about Jet 10" Band Saw w/ Stand, Model JWBS-10OS :

    I really wanted to like this bandsaw. I have always viewed the JET name in a positive light and I have a JET product which is very good for what it does. Also, the JET company is in Tennessee and I like to buy from companies that are located locally, which even though the product is made in China, JET still provides local people with jobs and that is good. 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. Don't waste your time, effort, or money on this cheap piece of...... Thanks JET for letting me down.

    Absolute Garbage

    Comments about Jet 10" Band Saw w/ Stand, Model JWBS-10OS :

    This is by far the worst bandsaw I have ever seen. It is so underpowered that it has trouble getting through almost any species of 2" hardwood. With a brand new blade it will come to a dead stop at a normal feed rate multiple times on 2" hardwood turning stock unless you slowly finesse it through. I have a little Delta bandsaw that is half the size of this with a much smaller motor and it runs circles around this Jet. In fact, when I bought the Jet, it was so bad that I took it in to be serviced because I thought there was something wrong with it. If you want to cut anything harder than pine or other soft woods, buy something else. This was a very expensive paper weight. I also own 2 Jet Lathes and a Jet dust collector which I absolutely love. So I expected this bandsaw to be no different but unfortunately it was.

    Comments about Jet 10" Band Saw w/ Stand, Model JWBS-10OS :

    Used to make adirondack chairs and other small projects. Uses 67 1/2 " blades with limited sources. Seems to be slightly under powered. Might just be me, I'm a fairly new band saw user. Saw seems to be of solid construction but might not suite really heavy user. I like it as semi-active craft person.
