The price-to-quality ratio of this machine is great. It’s not a cheap piece of equipment by any means, but the overall quality of its components, as well as the chassis, is extraordinary. In other words, it’s designed to withstand intense projects and yield consistent results at all times.

While the gadget generates the various operations, the tension coil design permits for augmented blade tensioning. Attributable to this, the gadget can achieve an impressive cutting deepness while cutting angles as well. Its blade dimension exemplifies its cutting capability with changeable velocities.

The impressive blade speed (1500 / 3000 SFPM) and heavy-duty cast iron frame make this saw more than capable of tackling even the toughest materials.
- Table Saw Geeks
There’s an easy to view blade tracking window that allows for optimal precision and safety, as well as blade guide post with rack and pinion adjustment.
- Thoroughly Reviewed

- Top Rate Ten
This band saw has 15X15-inches sturdy work table, this table designed tilt 10 degrees left and 45 degrees right. The JWBS-14XPRO gives the user the flexibility to meet the unique demands of the new projects.
- Smart P Tools
And it has the added benefit of adding some more storage space in the lower cabinet.
- Fundamentals of Wood Working
The blades are easy to change fast with the ball bearing guides and tires marked with yellow to make it easier to see the blade.
- Tool And Go
The kit aspect of the JET JWBS-14DXPRO Review is that it comes with its complementary stand readily inclusive in the purchase. And boy do we love it!

For a saw that has high ratings, it is important that you always get it right. There is no doubt this one feels that way thanks to the high cutting capacity you get with the model. The model comes with enough power that can handle cutting through materials of various sizes. It comes with an amazing cutting capacity width of 13.5 inches and 12 inches for the height.
- Miter Saw Buzz
The rugged and durable cast iron frame allows for the toughest jobs related to cutting and sawing. This is facilitated by a blade speed of 1500/3000 SFPM, and together, these features saves th ser from the trouble of using the rider block.
- Saw Critic
It is very easy to set up, install and begin using this band saw.
- Band Saw Report
Other that this, the performance is pretty impressive and the combination of great design and solid performances has assured it’s place in almost all best band saw reviews.
- Power Saw Reviewed
High-end motor holds vibrations facilitating steady and quiet work
- Band Saws Expert
And speaking of the blade, users are happy to report that (while not expensive by any means) the included blade is adequate for quite a few jobs.

What experts didn't like
The vast majority of pictures online show the fence on this unit, even though it’s not included by default. It can be a deceiving thing, especially if you’re on a strict budget.

Surprisingly, there are no extras with this saw. That means you won’t get a miter gauge or even a fence – something that’s basically become a standard accessory on benchtop models. That’s disappointing given the price although not a deal breaker by any means.
- Woodwork Boss
Doesn't come with the fence featured in the product photo.
- BestReviews
It does not include a fence.
- Top Rate Ten
Another drawback is blade tension. Jet provides two stamped metal feet that bolt to the out fid side of the base. Without them the band saw would tip over when running thicker stock post the blade.
- Smart P Tools
The dust collection system includes a four inch dust port is on the blade path beneath the table, and a brush on the lower wheel. When properly connected the dust that usually accumulates in the cabinets is taken away as it is created. It not perfect but it works.
- Fundamentals of Wood Working
Not compact and definitely not lightweight.

The fence is not included.
- Miter Saw Buzz
Expensive
- Saw Critic
The lower bearing guides cannot be accessed conveniently as it is placed at quite a lower position and is small in size.
- Band Saw Report
Another problem is this band saw does not include a fence or a miter gauge.
- Power Saw Reviewed
Factory installed band gauge is not made of good quality
- Band Saws Expert
There are a couple complaints with this saw. The biggest one is the need for foot attachments to maintain stability instead of making the base a solid unit.
