This is my dream band saw, it is everything I hoped for. It is replacing a Delta 14" band saw I received free from my uncle. (When I asked my wife about replacing it, she asked if it was the one that made all that noise.) This new saw is quite and I love the large fence. I did also purchase a 1" saw blade because I specifically wanted to do re-sawing of wide boards to build stand up paddle boards. Very easy set up, did have a broken arrow for the tension indicator that had to have occurred in the factory because it was package well in the crate. Called friendly customer service and had new part with in a short period of time. I had it delivered for free to the Home Depot I work at so I could inspect it before taking possession. For a small fee I then had the local HD deliver it, delivery guys even put it in my shop. Only complaint, I could not find a portable stand by Jet for the saw, had to get a after-market one that is just ok.

money well spent
This is a present to myself and one i waited for for many years. It was worth every cent i spent for it changing and centering the blade is so easy and simple even a preteen could do it. Instructions were good but could have been better . There is one bolt rhat is made to hold something on the table. I still have no clue what it is suppose to do. The power is awesome and it is so quiet i a not sure its running. Except for that one bolt everything else was easyyto figure out and work with. I am just a hobbyist and this machine was like opening a toy that opens the door to many more projects i would have never even attempted. Uou willnot be disappointed.

    The rip fence and the tool less blade change are fantastic
      Great saw but if you want to resale exotic woods then get the 18”
      This is a great saw for everything except re-sawing dense exotic wood. The blades that are needed are bi-metal which have a 0.35 thickness which is only for bandsaws with 18” wheels and larger. This has a 14.75” wheel which will isn’t proper for the blades needed to re-saw dense exotic woods. If this is fine for you then i would also suggest getting the 3HP motored one. You can not upgrade or change the motor down the line and this is a bit slow so I would recommend the 3hp motored 15” bandsaw
