Solid Re-Saw machine

Solid Re-Saw machine

1675 days ago by richgreer | 6 comments »

I was looking at the bandsaw reviews on this website and I noticed that there was no review of my bandsaw. So I decided to address this oversight by providing this review. I need to put my review into perspective. Previously, I used the band saw attachment for my shopsmith. That is an 11 inch bandsaw that is much different than this bandsaw. I have never had experience with other bandsaws that are comparable to this. Therefore, I cannot compare this bandsaw to other comparable ba...

Jet bandsaw motor replacement

Jet bandsaw motor replacement

1385 days ago by kayakguy | 11 comments »

This is not so much a review of my bandsaw, as a discussion of issues I had with the motor, and the struggle I went through replacing it. I had origionally posted this under ‘projects’, but some folks had suggested it really belonged under ‘reviews’. So here it is. While re-sawing some 10” wide Walnut boards, I managed to blow out the motor on my bandsaw. The local repair shop could not fix it (they claimed it was a cheap motor, and not repairable). Jet wanted almos...

How could they even sell this?

How could they even sell this?

1674 days ago by funchuck | 18 comments »

I was very excited to order this. A 10” Jointer/Planer for only $420? That’s a great deal! And it’s a JET! Well, when it arrived, it looked like the box had been through hell. The top and bottom flaps were opened, the stand was missing, and all the nuts, bolts and washers were scattered all over the place. I was ok with the missing stand, since I had an extra stand from an old Delta table saw I can use. I just had to make sure none of the other parts were missing....

Another Jet 10" jointer/planer combo review

Another Jet 10" jointer/planer combo review

925 days ago by Eric | 7 comments »

Having a large hunk of white oak cut up roughly (chainsaw!) and dried, and beaten up by taking a good hour on one piece jointing with hand planes, I finally took the plunge with the Jet 10” combo. I have a small non-garage shop, so both space and charge card were important! Since others have reviewed the machine here and on other sites, I just want to add my thoughts if you are considering the purchase.First, as others have said, set up is a snap, tables well-enough co-planer out of t...

Final Bandsaw

Final Bandsaw

1673 days ago by PhineasWhipsnake | 11 comments »

I’m retiring in 3 months, so I decided to upgrade to this saw from a Delta 10” I bought 10 years ago. I originally wanted the 17” Grizzly, but decided to buy from a local brick & mortar store (Sacrramento Machinery)for political reasons. This saw has pretty much all the features I wanted: 12” resaw capacity, roller guides, quick-disconnect detensioning, and, most importantly, local support in case of a problem. Like everyone else, I replaced the blade with a...

Now I really do have 10 Inches...

Now I really do have 10 Inches...

1633 days ago by Kerry Drake | 21 comments »

Last August I purchased a Jet 10” Combination Jointer/Planer, and last weekend I finally got to give it a real workout. I had 3 pieces of 6/4 Cherry all 10’ long ranging in width from about 5” up to nearly 9”. I needed to mill them all down to the exact same thickness so I could glue them up and make one massive cherry counter top 9’ 3” long and 17” deep. Me and my Jet got to spend 5 hours of quality time with each other. The good: 1 – T...

Using New Shaper

Using New Shaper

1630 days ago by ND2ELK | 15 comments »

I finally got to try out my new shaper today. It has a 1 1/2hp motor and comes with a 1/2” spindle, 3/4” spindle, 1/4” collet and 1/2” collet for router bits. It has two different speeds and a forward and reverse. I really like the idea that I can use shaper cutters and router bits on the same machine. I have not bought any shaper cutters yet because I feel I should buy shaper cutters for each of the jobs as I do them. That holds true for router bits as well. As I do m...

Functional, precise, compact

Functional, precise, compact

1630 days ago by Twigger | 2 comments »

I at first used this saw as a chop saw, setting up a workshop and building various racks, etc. Then I used the miter feature in cutting some six-sided shelves for a maple corner cabinet. That’s where I’ve appreciated the precision and repeatability of this saw. I’m looking forward to the compound miter feature when I cut some crown molding for the cabinet. The instructions with the saw are clear enough to get me there. The saw operations, including slide, are very smooth.

Review: JET Hybrid Table Saw JPS-10

Review: JET Hybrid Table Saw JPS-10

842 days ago by Rb12 | 16 comments »

This is my first tool review and I know it is not something new to the market, but still sold so, I figured I would throw it out there for others. Recently bought a JET Hybrid Table Saw JPS-10 . Up until now I had my dad’s hand-me-down, 30-year-old Delta/Rockwell, 1-hp Model 9 Contractor Saw. The fence was horrible, it had metal lattice work wings (finger catchers), a bearing had gone in the motor and it was loud as hell (forget the dime test, it couldn’t pass the push stick test… where ...

A bargain and capable

A bargain and capable

1630 days ago by Twigger | 3 comments »

This dust collector does a great job for individual power tools including my Jet Pro Shop table saw, JET JJP-8BT 8” Benchtop Planer/Jointer Combo, and router table. The planer especially puts out a lot of shavings which are almost completely sucked up. And it’s easy to move between equipment. VERY easy assembly.
