When I purchased a Jet 14″ band saw four years ago it was an amazing deal. The saw came loaded with features, including a fancy rip fence and miter gauge, and it cost hundreds less than comparable saws.

Today, that same band saw is an even better deal because Jet has upgraded the motor, the blade guides and the blade-tensioning mechanism, and still kept the reasonable price tag.
