Other bandsaws you might want to consider is Rikon and Laguna. I purchased a Rikon 14”BS less than a year ago and I am very pleased. It has a resaw capacity of 12” which I believe is more than the Jet 16”BS. The only issues I had were the cheap fence and the light. I rewired the light to make it more functional. The fence is very difficult to align for blade drift. I wanted to get the Laguna 14”BS but didn’t want to spend about $500 more. I believe the Laguna is a superior BS if you want to spend the money. Hope this helps.
