So I installed this kit today on my JWBS-14DX. It was very straightforward and took about 30 minutes by myself. I must confess that I watched a quick vid on youtube, and ditched the instructions. I did look through them afterwards that they seemed alright. Anyway, the fit and finish on this kit is pretty good, and everything went together smoothly. My only complaint…..the powder coating on the riser block was not quite as nice as the powder coating on the saw, but, that really isn’t that big of a deal. I also decided to put a 1/4”, 6tpi timberwolf blade on, and let me tell ya, this thing cuts circles (literally) around the factory JET blade. Once everything was installed and tightened down, I centered the blade on the wheels and fired up the saw. Everything ran flawlessly. No rubbing and no additional adjustments. All and All, I am very happy.
One quick word of caution…..when removing the original upper guide rod, be careful!! There is a small ball bearing and spring that keeps the assembly from dropping too fast. Thank goodness I swept my garage floor over the weekend, or they would have been lost forever.
-- Measuring twice and cutting once only works if you read the tape correctly!
