The new 14″ steel-frame band saw from Jet is nothing less than heavy-duty. With its 3-horsepower, 220-volt motor, this saw is built to handle just about anything you can throw at it.
The one-piece frame makes this band saw extremely rigid for tough cuts such as resawing wide boards (it has a 131⁄2″ capacity). At 360 pounds, there’s enough mass to absorb almost all of the vibration created by the moving parts.
Everything from the ample cast iron table to the rip fence body speaks to a machine that is built to endure. Plug it in, turn it on and you can motor through work for years to come.
