With precision T-style fence assembly and parallel cutting device for special cutting jobs the Jet JWBS-20Q can tackle most large cutting tasks. The extra large cast iron table tilts -10° to + 45° and is supported on each side by large trunnions. The balanced cast iron wheels are tyred with a curved, long-life PU coating. Performance is further improved by the upper and lower precision guides, which also extend blade life. The two blade speeds of 550 & 970 m/min are selectable via stepped pulleys. There is precise and simple adjustment of the cutting height of the upper blade guide using large-size hand wheel and rack system. Built-in as standard is a cutting height scale making it simple to read the exact depth of the cut. A conveniently mounted, dual function blade tension hand lever has an easy-to-read blade scale. The mitre gauge tilts 60³ to each side of centre. This is a highly accurate, smooth cutting bandsaw, well suited to the industrial workshop. N.B. A 20A supply is recommended when used with a 230V Jet JWBS-20Q bandsaw.

SuperbOutstanding saw. Slightly fiddly fitting the widest blades. Operating performance is excellent when set up correctly and fitted with the correct, sharp blade. It doesn't extract perfectly but this has no bearing on its cutting ability and that ought not put you off, it is no worse than any other. Having upgraded from a much lesser beast, this bandsaw is now my machine of first choice over the table. I doubt you can beat this saw without spending an awful lot of money.

A beastThis machine can cope with anything. I have resawn large amounts and thicknesses of oak and ash and It doesn't show any signs of a stutter. The quick tension feature is very useful. As with all bandsaws it doesn't extract perfectly but better than others I have seen. The brake is a little sluggish but that is the case with induction brakes. Show me a better quality, better value bandsaw and I will be impressed.
