Two new bandsaws from JET are now available in the UK from Axminster Tools & Machinery.

JET JWBS-15 Bandsaw is fully capable of heavy duty work and offers plenty of resaw capacity, tackling bigger boards, mastering intricate cuts and creating smoother edges.

JET JWBS-18 Bandsaw offers larger capacities both vertically and horizontally, with a maximum depth of cut of up to 407mm and width of cut of 457mm.

With both models, the heavy duty cast iron fence system is built to give you the sturdiness and support you need for cutting large timbers. Balanced cast iron wheels allow for smooth cutting on a solid cast iron table which tilts from 5° left to 45° right. The fence system also features a micro-adjust dial for exact placement when cutting small or thin pieces of timber.

The blades have large, independently adjustable roller bearing blade guides, above and below the table. These are tool-less making it quick and simple to set up and allow for accurate adjustments on intricate projects. The result is high quality cuts and a long saw blade life.

A no-volt-release switch and an electromechanical brake are important safety features on both bandsaws.

Fitted with two dust ports, the machine captures dust at the source for efficient dust extraction, minimising mess in the workshop.

Prices are as follows: JWBS-15 £1,999.00; JWBS-18 £2,449.00 (prices include vat and may be subject to change without notice).
