Jet 14 Inch Bandsaw (714550) Preview

Jet 14 Inch Bandsaw

Jet 14 Inch Bandsaw Now Powered By 3 HP Motor

Jet’s 14 inch Bandsaw (model 714550) is the latest edition to their bandsaw lineup and features the power of a 3 horsepower motor. Our experience with Jet bandsaws has been very positive and they usually rate very high in build quality. You can check out our review of their 14 inch, 1-3/4 horsepower bandsaw here. The 714550 features an actual cutting length of 13-1/2 inches. That 3 horsepower motor delivers 3000 SFPM just like the 1-3/4 hp model does, so the additional power goes into maintaining that level of speed when smaller motors begin to get bogged down. The larger motor also requires 240 volts of power so you’ll need to make sure that you have a connection available to handle that.

When it comes to features, this Jet 14 inch bandsaw has plenty to make the getting the job done less stressful. The cast iron table measures 21-1/2 inches long by 16 inches wide and stands 39 inches from the floor. It is capable of tilting up to 45 degrees to the right and 10 degrees to the left. There are a pair of 4 inch dust collection ports on the back of the saw. Jet recommends that your dust collection system is capable of 400 CFM to use them effectively.

The fence has been redesigned to help you be more precise than previous versions. It measures 18-1/4 inches long and 6 inches high. Sliding on a steel guide rail, it is fully adjustable in two positions and features micro-adjusting with a laser etched scale.

On the inside, the 125 inch blade set on a set of cast iron, nine spoke upper and lower blade wheels. These have been computer balanced to reduce vibration and increase accuracy. The jet 14 inch bandsaw also handles precise tension adjustments using a and handwheel and tensioning scale. Blade changes are tool free thanks to a blade tension release.

Jet backs up the 3 HP 14 inch bandsaw with a 5 year warranty and their RED Assurance service and support program. MSRP is $1799.99, and you can find authorized dealers on their website.
