  1. Another shout out to Lee Valley Customer Service

    I just got off the phone with Lee Valley customer service. Had a problem with a recent order -- not their fault at all, was the shipping service. The person helping me was friendly, polite, speedy,...

    My bandsaw is on a mobile base. With the base secured (wheels up) it does not rock, but only if the base is properly leveled. My point is that my concrete garage floor is not level, and so depending...

    Joel, totally get wanting an excellent bandsaw and you will be glad you did. Just curious why you are getting rid of the portable and relatively small table saw. I am not as expert as many here, and...

    Thank you both, very helpful! I was indeed wondering how the clamps fit through the table. Do you know if the Bessey clamps will also thread through the dog hole as long as the surface isn’t too...

    Festool MFT clamps

    These clamps look like exactly what I need for a jig I am making. My question is whether they can be used with standard dog holes or what size hole they need?

    I do not have the Festool MFT table...

    A good, sharp bit is also key. I learned about higher quality bits from folks on this forum. Generic HSS porter cable bits, despite my best efforts to sharpen them, were not doing the job on the...

    I was not happy with my Dewalt 12Ē slider. It was big and heavy, took up a ton of space, had terrible dust collection, was super noisy, had a tendency to jump when you started it (no soft start) and...

    Yet another plus for the Lee Valley lipped bits. I also have a set of US made Norseman M7 high molybdenum steel bits that are less expensive (but not cheap) and are great general purpose bits...

    I like Odies Oil and Tried and True. Also recommend Sutherland and Wells polymerized tung oil. Really adds some nice warmth and the walnut I have finished with it has not lightened.

    Thanks Glenn, that's my view (and Osvaldo's too). I do change blades and I do like to keep the saw running true, so I think I'm going to leave them off. If dust becomes a problem I'll try putting a...

    Ed,

    I do use a dust collector. That makes sense although they seem like a pretty poor design (overkill and not very efficient to boot) if that is what they are for. I would think a piece of 4Ē...

    Thanks Osvaldo. You actually can run the saw with both doors open, although once I discovered this, I never do. Here's a photo of the under-table blade guards so folks can see what I'm talking...

    Bandsaw under table blade guards

    My Jet 14sfx has two chunky red guards underneath the table on either side of the blade. They do not get anywhere close to the blade but they do make adjusting the roller guides very difficult. In...

    Reviving an old thread here, as I had a chance to turn some kiln dried butternut over the weekend. It turned out pretty nice, but I found it an unusual wood to work with -- it is very light, and...

    I think your canopy idea is good, but honestly (and I know you said you didn't want to hear ideas like this) I think your best bet is to clean out your shop and then have better dust abatement. I am...

    Bruce the Rockler inserts and several others that say they fit most 14Ē saws, including Jet, do not fit the JWBS-14SFX. I believe they fit older Jet saws.

    Thanks all. Very helpful. It doesnít rub very often. Agree that widening it just a bit seems like a good idea especially considering the dust collection aspect
  22. Zero clearance insert for band saw table: material choice

    Hi folks,

    I own a Jet JWBS-14SFX. Pretty happy with it, although the table insert has a big slot, so I decided to make a zero clearance replacement. There are no aftermarket ones available. I...

    Dave,

    You got some good advice from some real experts who are also pro turners. Accordingly they were recommending bigger, more powerful saws. I have had the very model you ordered (Jet 14-SFX)...
