Jet’s new 14" bandsaw enters a tool category with a large number of competitive models. But this saw has some innovative features that woodworkers will appreciate, especially with regard to heavy-duty resawing. For starters, there’s just over 13" of resaw height, and the saw can accept 3/4" blades.
Nice saw - Cheap fence
The saw is great. Easy to set up and change blades. The fenced however is the cheapest POC (piece of crap) I have ever seen. Not sure why you would build a nice saw and then engineer something so rinky dink for a fence. I do not recommend because of this.
Set up of the bandsaw was relatively simple. The packaging was neat, and assembling the base stand, mounting the bandsaw on the base, and mounting the table were all simple to do. The saw is very easy to adjust and has plenty of power. My first use was on cutting poplar logs into boards and the blade (using a 5/8" timberwolf) cut through like butter
I purchased my Jet at Woodcraft in the Kansas City area...a tip of the hat to the staff -- great staff! Setup is easy, just use your head and don't sweat the minor differences that seem to plague a lot of complainers who seem to just want to vent worthless comments instead of overcoming the issues. Such as the two lower screws for the upper dust collector are very (very) hard to start by hand. Just cut a slot in the bottom edge of the plastic chute screw locations, then hand start the lower screws into the unit. Now, slide the dust chute over the screws by-way of the slots you cut. Shorten or use a ball-end Allen wrench to tighten the screws. (or find two screws that better suit the tools you have on hand) No biggie --- there are some other issues but seriously --- if you're buying a bandsaw of this quality and size, obviously you have a few handyman skills . . . use them. I would recommend the Wolverine blades (no blade with sale). Resawing is awesome. Cuts are very smooth and accurate. The 116" blade length and large motor allow for a cooler blade temp on long cuts and plenty of power. I would recommend a moveable stand. I purchased the WEN moveable stand, works great. (500lb capacity stand) Lighting is a must. OK, I am getting older and extra lighting is a must. Special note: I have a large Delta table saw and the table T guide slots are the exact same size as the Jet Bandsaw T slides. So I can use most of my jigs and guides that I have already created on the Jet with no problem. All in all -- This saw (which is now known in my shop as Big Ben) is above par from a lot of the other bandsaws of comparable size. One draw back is blade setup takes a bit of time -- maybe longer than other brands -- however if you pay attention, and use the "Snodgrass" method of blade installation the only bottom adjustment would be the thrust bearing when changing blades. Happy Sawing :)
I love this 14” bandsaw. It’s heavy, well made, a resaw beast. I just wish the lower guides were a little easier to adjust which would make blade switch out so much easier unless I’m doing something wrong😳😳
I had researched for months to decide which bandsaw I should get for my home shop. The Jet SFX did not disappoint. I was able to get it while on sale for 10% off, and on the advice of the staff at Woodcraft, I used the savings to purchase a mobile base. This proved to be a very smart decision as I have not decided where in my shop this Goose will roost. I followed Alex Snodgrass' video on proper alignment and decided to test a 5" thick piece of maple stock and the Jet sliced it straight and true. Very pleased with the results. Next on my list will be a dust collection system and a nicer fence if I can find one that is compatible. Also, special thanks to the fellas at Tulsa Woodcraft for all the help and advice. They had smart answers for my dumb questions and didn't miss a beat. Thanks guys.
So far.. So good
Been wanting a bandsaw for couple of years now and decided to go with the JWBS14-SFX based on price, features, free shipping and reviews. I was concerned about having it shipped due to some reviewers who had bad experiences with their shipping company and the weight of the shipped item. However in my case everything went perfectly and it was delivered into my garage to within 10ft of its final resting spot. It is heavy and was not sure if I would need help or use of hoist to setup and position, but it turned out to be not too challenging to stand it up and rock/walk it over the final few feet alone. That being said I am a big guy, if you are on the slender side you probably should get some help with this part. Follow the setup instructions as presented in the video on Jet website, the printed instructions are overly complex, suggesting hoisting etc. Setting everything up and adjusting took about 2 hours in total. Breaking down and disposing of the packing materials however took longer, the amount of rigid styrofoam packing was ridiculous! Jet should consider alternative packing methods. Upon full inspection I did find some issues with the finish quality (chipped or cracked paint) however these were minor and not in highly visible areas, so I didn’t get in a twist as I will probably do far more damage to the finish in using it anyway. Most everything on the saw is solid and high quality. It was easy to get everything level, square and things stay were you set them from cut to cut and session to session. It is making great quality cuts. One of the key reasons to purchase this was to enable me to resaw the copious amounts of hardwood timber available on my property and in this respect it is solid performer, even running on 110v. I don’t have dust collection yet, so can’t comment on that. I have been using for about a month now and so far I am very happy with it.
I purchased this saw from the Oakwood Village, Ohio location. Everyone in there is great by the way. I bought a floor model, so I just had to do small adjustments and this thing runs great. I tested it on some maple that was 4x4. With the stock blade it did fine. As with any bandsaw new you should get a good blade or two seperate. Plenty of power running 110v , fairly quiet. I got this to eliminate a table saw by 95% for my work. Went in for a Rikon, and left with a Jet.
I'm about a month in on the new bandsaw (Jet JWBS14-SFX). I'm happy with it overall. The good: very powerful saw, very sturdy overall build. Love the belt tension and alignment windows and saw adjustments. Table is super heavy duty and sturdy. Included blade works great to start with (5/8"). You'll want to get some other ones soon of course. The bad - I can't believe the fence mechanism they put on this thing. The fence itself is tall and sturdy aluminum (excellent). However, the sliding part that attaches to the table is an absolute piece of garbage. The four screws that you use to square the sliding fence to the table are too short and don't grab threads properly. The fence was out of vertical alignment, so I went to adjust and found that someone who put it together in the factory used a washer as a shim on one corner - sloppy!!!! I fixed the short screws problem by making the holes a little deeper for the screw heads to get a bigger bite on the threads. Seriously, the saw is super nice, I cannot believe they put this Harb0r Fre1ght quality fence system on it. Again, good fence, bad attachment system to the table top. That's all I have to say bad about it. The packaging was solid and it came in two boxes (base and saw). It's palletized. Have your friends ready, it's heavy. Don't forget to order a base for it, otherwise it will sit in the exact spot you assembled it for a few weeks like mine did. And plan to convert it to 220V as soon as you can, it just runs better - though I did not have trouble with it on 110V. On 220, it starts faster and sounds better. You will lose the benefit of the extra 110V outlet after you convert but oh well. Good saw, I've loved it so far. BTW, I compared this saw to some Laguna saws around $1000, and the Grizzly offerings and found that I just got more with this one. I used a black friday sale and got $100 off if I remember right, which helps. Free shipping is huge, as this weighs like 350lbs when shipped. Grizzly charges about $100 for shipping, so add that to your calculations with whatever you go with.
