I bought a bandsaw this weekend. I had been wanting one and had intended to wait awhile until I had my shop reconfigured so the saw would fit, was planning on at Jet 14” with a riser block, when one of those “right place, right time” moments arose courtesy of Craigslist and an unexpected windfall.
The result – Jet 18” 3 HP bandsaw in pristine condition with a mobile base – $550.
I have to get in touch with Jet to get a copy of the manual since it doesn’t seem to be one of the ones available on their website, but in the meantime I need to shop for some blades. I believe this saw takes 137” blades. Anyone have any recommendations on brands? I hear consistently positive things about Timberwolf, but am open to any other suggestions both on brand of blade and where to buy them, i.e. online retailers, Woodcraft/Rockler, etc.
I’ve read plenty of magazine reviews, looking for some info from people who use them regularly in their shops.
Thanks a bunch!
