The Jet JWBS-16X is intended for heavy work and has cast iron blade wheels, a super cast iron table which can tilt from -10° to +45°, a locking rip fence which is supported at the front and rear of the table and extends slightly beyond the cast iron table to give an excellent capacity on both sides of the blade. On the face of the rip fence is a point cutting attachment which is ideal for re-sawing. The mitre fence is 'T' slotted into the table for accuracy, safety and extended capacity. The blade is guided both above and below the table with micrometer-adjusted thrust and bearing rollers which give a positive support to the blade, resulting in a very good quality of cut and extended blade life.
With fully interlocked doors, electro-mechanical motor brake and with easily accessible blade tension and tracking controls, this machine is for the professional workshop where an accurate bandsaw with good capacities can become a very popular machine with which to work. To move this machine around the workshop we recommend the purchase of the mobile base unit. This additional base unit is easy to fit and allows the machine to be moved without fear of tipping the unit over or causing any damage to either the operator or the machine. Fitted with a 16A plug.
N.B. A 20A supply circuit breaker is recommended .

Nice bit of kitI bought this bandsaw to replace my small DIY Draper one so i could cut my own blacks and logs without it taking forever. Right from ordering it to it being delivered Axminster have been fantastic with communication all the way through. The Driver rang me the week before it was delivered with an estimate of the time he would arrive, and he rand on the day to tell me he was on schedule. He arrived bang on time. I planned on offloading it into my garage then arranging for some friends to help me take around the back of my house down some steps and into my workshop. The driver who's name i cannot remember for the life of me, helped me take it straight to my workshop which was above and beyond what I expected due to it being heavy and involving steps, So a big thank you there.

Quality kitJust took delivery of this item. It came in a wooden crate and delivered by Stewart. Once unpacked this item inspires confidence. The paint finish is excellent and all items seem robust and well finished. The manual is poor and not much help but if you are used to bandsaws and their maintainence it is fairly obvious how it should be setup. The setup video on this website is much more help. An electrician friend advised that a normal 13 amp plug would be adequate so this was substituted for the 16 amp fitted plug. I removed the blade that ships with the saw and fitted an axcalliber blade. Setup of the blade is easy but there is an awkward to reach Allen key to loosen off the lower guide assembly. This was no worse than the arrangement on my previous bandsaw and with perseverance I was able to manage. Tensioning and tracking the blade is easy and the solid cast table and aluminium fence are accurate ans solid.

Excellent Professional Bandsaw - Exceptional ValueI initially ordered the 14" Jet model with a wheel kit, but as it was out of stock we had to wait 3 months before delivery. This wasn't a problem, but during the 2nd month of waiting Axminster dropped the price of the 16" model, and after comparing floor size, and price, an extra £50 (minus the wheel kit) on what I was originally paying seemed like a no brainer. A quick call to Axminster and 7 days later the 'in stock' 16" model was on its way.

Good but takes a lot of tuning.This is a good bandsaw - but there are a few things little things that niggle and I feel like they could have easily been avoided. Again, with a bit of work and TLC this bandsaw is great, but it's worth noting this before you buy.
