The JET 708115K JWBS-14CS has everything you’ve been looking for in a saw. It has a 68 inch by 26 inch by 19 inch overall size on a 15 inch by 15 inch table. It also weighs 185 pounds and comes with a long half-decade warranty (you’re assured of quality service for five years or they’ll replace your saw). It also includes a dust chute for iron and saw dust, the saw itself, and a stable stand.
The table, meanwhile, is made from cast iron and the blade will stay sharp after much use because it’s a graphite-impregnated polymer (that is, reinforced with carbon to make it harder) blade that can cut through any wood or most metals.
The JET 708115K comes with a 14-inch saw with an enclosed stand that has the capacity to cut through material measuring 6 inches by 13 ½ inches.
Furthermore, to assist with the sharp blade, it also has a one-horsepower engine that can move the saw at an impressive 3,000 strokes per minute. You can also make different types of angled cuts because the table can be tilted to however direction you want it to tilt, going from 0 to 45 degrees. It’s one of the most straightforward saws you’ll ever get your hands on and it has a lot of power to spare. It even has Graphite Guide Blocks to further improve your cutting accuracy.
The JET 708115K JWBS-14CS might have a blade that wobbles a bit, but that can be fixed with a bit of blade tensioning.
In order to get the right level of tension, you can use the tension knob to tighten the blade up, which is centered on the wheels. This isn’t a small detail; it’s designed to be tightened as evidenced by how JET placed the tension knob above the wheel cover. It even has a tension indicator that indicates blade width, such as ½ inch, ⅛ inch, and ¾ inch. Adjust tension and tracking to remove the blade wobble. In fairness to Jet, the position of their tension knob is such that you’ll avoid banging your knuckles against metal while you’re turning it.
After researching for multiple saws, you’ll quickly see that the JET 708115K is one of the top saws out there. It’s arguably in the top ten, or even the best one around. It answers all the questions you have and all the needs you want met when shopping for a band saw thanks to how intuitive and easy to operate it is.
Furthermore, unlike certain other brands, assembly is straightforward when it comes to the JET 708115K JWBS-14CS. The manual unambiguously outlines what needs to be done, and alignment of upper and lower wheels is something any DIY-savvy homeowner should be able to accomplish. All mounting hardware serve as a perfect fit for this tool.
