JET Band Saws
JET® band saws help woodworkers quickly cut materials for all sorts of projects. They're built for professional-quality work, but that doesn't mean they're too powerful for the home shop. Like all Jet woodworking tools, these band saws combine heavy-duty performance with reliable safety features.
Vertical band saws rely on two large wheels to move their blades. Unlike Jet table saws, these machines have cabinets above and below their work areas. The wheels spin inside these cabinets, protected from dust and debris, where they maintain consistent cutting speeds under pressure. Woodworking band saws depend on iron and steel for their tables. These tables provide enough support for heavy materials, and they're built to withstand harsh shop conditions. Because of their durable bodies and efficient wheel positions, Jet band saws have the strength you need for reliable resaw cuts.
These machines have several ways to increase ease of use and precision, and vibration control remains one of the most important techniques. High-strength steel bodies hold materials to reduce vibrations as you work, while cast-iron wheels maintain the speed of the blade as you slice through stock. Most of these vertical band saws include their own rip fences to guide materials along a straight cut path. For precise results every time, find one that includes marked guidelines. Many fences lock in place with knobs, so you don't have to set the position for every piece of wood. Just make the cut, and slide the next piece into place.
Some Jet band saws in our lineup have miter guides, as well. These accessories lock into position to create angle cuts with the same vertical blade. These machines also connect with Jet dust collectors to help you filter dust and debris while you work. Because of their solid construction, versatile cut guides and dust collection ports, Jet band saws serve as fundamental woodworking tools for shops of all sizes. Find one with the cut capacity and power you need for your toughest projects.
