I apologize in advance if this has been asked before but I have been searching for 2 days through the backlog of posts and can not find the answer I am looking for.
I just purchased a Jet 14” bandsaw from my brother. He added the 3 speed kit to the saw because he did some metal cutting. The manuals that he provided does not explain the speed kit at all.
Without moving the belt (that will require loosening the motor) to figure out the different speeds, can anyone provide details as to the different speeds? What is the speed for each pulley? I plan to use this strictly for woodworking. What speed should I be using?
Debating on adding the riser and a fence. My hopes is to make some modifications to it to be able to resaw on it. I have found many posts that provide valuable information on resawing.
This is my first bandsaw so much is to be learned!
