I hope to be checking out a used bandsaw this weekend, and hoped I could hit y’all up for some info.
The model number is 708705(W?), which appears to be also known as the WBS-14(CS). I’ve found surprisingly little online about the model, and Jet/WMH pages don’t have the manual for this model. The owner says that it’s the same as the 708115K/JWBS that jet has on the website (aka the JWBS-14CS).
I haven’t used a bandsaw since high school shop class, but I’ve been keeping my eyes open for a deal, and this came up. Anybody have one of these and have any feedback? Or any suggestions on what to look at, what to try when checking it out? It was bought in 1999, so it’s no spring chicken, but it’s not an antique by any stretch… All advice (even the obvious) greatly appreciated!
