JET Mitering Bandsaws
For detailed cutting work with repeatable accuracy and fast cuts, JET® mitering bandsaws are a popular choice among professionals. The features of these large and often-stationary Jet saws vary depending on type, but many come with swiveling heads that let you cut at multiple angles and tackle the cutting of different materials like wood, sheet metal, pipes and tubing. Most vertical and horizontal mitering bandsaws boast an efficient cooling system that keeps the blades and the machine at an optimum temperature while you work. Other qualities, like self-propelled blade brushes, cast-iron beds and bi-metal blades, help extend the lives of each saw.
Horizontal, vertical and shearable miter bandsaws are the most common types. Horizontal options are ideal for cutoff work, allowing you to cut heavy stock and multiple 2x4s at the same time. For more detailed work involving cutting shapes, vertical tables are often a better option. Some Jet mitering bandsaws offer both horizontal and vertical options. Some also come with adjustable hydraulic feed systems that hold your material stationary and feed it through the blade for precise, easy and safe cuts.
Whether you're cutting stainless steel round stock into thin slabs at a job site or creating detailed and curved ornamental iron frames, the head of your Jet mitering bandsaw is essential. Most feature swiveling heads that keep your work piece secure while cutting at angles up to 45 degrees. Swivel heads also let you miter cut tubing and pipes. Like many Jet horizontal bandsaws, mitering saws from this manufacturer sometimes boast large scales that make changing the saw head's position easy.
For durability, many vertical, horizontal and shearable miter bandsaws have cast-iron tables. Due to the added weight this produces, some saws come with stands. There are also options with two to four wheels for easy portability from job site to job site.
When you're cutting metal or plastic tubing for your next project, consider a Jet mitering bandsaw with a swivel head, hydraulic feed and multiple types of work tables. For any other cutting need, choose other Jet options, like Jet cold saws, vertical bandsaws and more.
