Customer Questions & Answers

how thick of a piece of wood can be cut with this saw

I have some oak that is 8" wide x 12" thick
Asked by: Greg
Most specs online saw the resaw capacity is 10". Figure slightly less but not by much mostly on the fact that it only has 1.5 hp but it has big solid iron wheels. With a good properly set fence you should be able to pull out 8-10 Eighth inch scanes out of a 2x8. Possibly even finer with practice and experience. Where this saw excels at over most 14" saws is . It's steel framed and accepts blades at 1" + 1.5" actually but Lennox and many other manufacturers can custom weld a blade of any length any material. But your saw needs to take a 1" plus blade. It actually has about double the power of most 14" saws. I'm regretting not getting this one over the one I did get.

1.5 HP 16 in. Woodworking Vertical Band Saw, 115/230-Volt, JWBS-16B is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid machine I still wonder why these machines cost so much. There is really so little to them. Having said that this is a well built solid machine cuts well. I use mostly for resawing and doesn't waver through thickest material so far. Haven't tried thin blade yet.
