If you have been patiently waiting for the annual Jet & Powermatic 15% off sale wait no longer, because it is now in full swing until March 10th! Every woodworker who’s been at it sometime knows this is the best opportunity to purchase Jet and Powermatic woodworking equipment each year. The large equipment manufacturing landscape has been shook up over the past couple years with JPW (Jet Powermatic Wilton) coming out on top in our minds. Last summer we had the opportunity to sit down with the bright minds behind all the new woodworking machinery and we are extremely confident in the leadership as well as continued quality and innovations of these brands.
One of the new products launched at last year’s media event was the new Jet 14” Bandsaw 714500 ($1614, $1899 with 15% off coupon). If this is what we should be looking forward to in the future we will be very happy but don’t take our word for it.
Roland from Fine Woodworking Magazine is one of our personally most trusted opinions in woodworking. He is a staple presenter at the Woodworking Show Tours and also one hell of a GoKart driver. Just last month Roland did a review on the saw and here were his thoughts for Fine Woodworking Magazine.
Our other trusted friends in the tool reviewing world that we can trust to tear apart anything and break it down to the last bolt are the guys at Pro Tool Reviews. In true PTR fashion they did a very in-depth review from unboxing to various sawing applications with the Jet JWBS-14SF and here were their results Pro Tool Review, Cliff note version a 4.8 out of 5 from some very critical tool reviewers.
