I have recently purchased a Jet Bandsaw JWBS-18. The blade has been renewed as the one it is supplied with is not recommended. I find the machine is underpowered despite its 2Hp motor and the speed a little on the slow side. General performance is no comparision with my 8 year old Electra Beckam 315 which is excellent - the Dure Edge blade makes all the difference ! I am considering a Newton-Teslar 3 phase motor. Most USA reports concern upgrading the motor. Are there any UK users out there please ? I would be interested in your findings and comments on the JET JWBS-18. Many thanks = Alan.
