Tool review: Deluxe 14-inch Bandsaws

5 of 9
Jet

Jet JWBS-14DXPRO

Pluses: We could change blades quickest on this saw with its easy-to-set ball-bearing blade guides, and yellow tires on the wheels that make it easier to see the blade through the plastic window when adjusting tracking. The rack-and-pinion guide post makes it easy to adjust the top guides up and down without it crashing to the table. A second set of fence-scale markings helps you position the fence accurately for resawing with the attached pivot. If you cut brass or aluminum, you'll like the two speed settings.

Minuses: You have to buy the $100 fence kit separately, and we'd love that 2-1/2"-tall fence to be a few inches taller for better support during resawing. The quick-release blade-tension lever is stiffer than most. 800-274-6848; jettools.com
