JET Dual Miter Band Saw First Look
Wouldn’t it be great if you could cut 15 degree cuts in rectangle steel tubing just as easy as cutting a 2×4 in a (wood) miter saw? The 10 Inch JET Dual Miter band saw is the tool for the job. With a 1hp motor and 16” x 10” cutting table, users can cut up to 10” pipe (90 degrees).
Metalworking and fabrication take a beating on tools. Imagine that?! Cutting and forming steel is tough on the tools doing it. Regardless, if your tools can’t cut the mustard in this industry, the word quickly spreads. This also holds true for the opposite; welders, fabricators and other tradesman are not shy to share the brands that pass the test. JET Tools has been supplying these trades tools and equipment since 1958.
JET Dual Miter Band Saw 10” Portable Features
Cutting pressure is controlled by the user with a ¼-turn valve and fine-tune valve for micro-adjustment. This adjustment manages the fall-rate of the blade coming down on the material being cut. To keep the blade, guides and wheels clean of metal debris, a self propelled blade brush resides behind one of the access panels. A submersible pump directs coolant fore and aft of the cutting area, directly on the blade. This not only keeps the blade cool but also acts as lubricant. A removable chip tray keeps the larger debris from falling into the coolant reservoir.
In case of a broken blade, a sensor interrupts power to the band saw, keeping the operator safe. In addition, the blade is completely guarded, except for the cutting surface. Additional safety features include a power switch safety key that prevents accidental start up, as well as automatic shut off that stops the saw the cut is finished. The 10 Inch JET dual miter band saw has followed strict requirements to be CSA/CUS certified. Furthermore,
