Warnings

1. Read and understand the entire owner’s manual before attempting assembly or operation.

2. Read and understand the warnings posted on the machine and in this manual. Failure to comply with all of these warnings may cause serious injury.

3. Replace the warning labels if they become obscured or removed.

4. This band saw is designed and intended for use by properly trained and experienced personnel only.

If you are not familiar with the proper and safe operation of a band saw, do not use until proper training and knowledge have been obtained.

5. Do not use this band saw for other than its intended use. If used for other purposes, JET disclaims any real or implied warranty and holds itself harmless from any injury that may result from that use.

6. Always wear approved safety glasses/face shields while using this band saw. Everyday eyeglasses only have impact resistant lenses; they are not safety glasses.

7. Before operating this band saw, remove tie, rings, watches and other jewelry, and roll sleeves up past the elbows. Remove all loose clothing and confine long hair. Non-slip footwear or anti-skid floor strips are recommended. Do not wear gloves.

8. Always use the blade guard on all ''through-sawing'' operations. A through-sawing operation is one in which the blade cuts completely through the workpiece.

9. Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling and other construction activities contain chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:

• Lead from lead based paint.

• Crystalline silica from bricks, cement and other masonry products.

• Arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber.

Your risk of exposure varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to these chemicals, work in a well-ventilated area and work with approved safety equipment, such as face or dust masks that are specifically designed to filter out microscopic particles.

10. Do not operate this machine while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or any medication.

11. Make certain the switch is in the OFF position before connecting the machine to the power supply.

12. Make certain the machine is properly grounded.

Grounding Instructions

This Band Saw must be grounded while in use to protect the operator from electric shock.

In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This tool is equipped with an electric cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug that looks similar to the plug in

Figure 10. The plug must be inserted into a matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Do not modify the plug provided. If it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. The conductor, with insulation having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes, is the equipmentgrounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal. grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should only be used until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician. This adapter is not applicable in

Canada. The green colored rigid ear, lug, or tab, extending from the adapter, must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box, as shown in

Figure 11.

Figure 11

230 Volt Conversion

If 230V, single-phase operation is desired, the following instructions must be followed:

Disconnect machine from power source.

This band saw is supplied with four motor leads that are connected for 115V operation, as shown in Figure 12. Reconnect these four motor leads for 230V operation, as shown in Figure 12.

Figure 10

Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether the tool is properly grounded.

Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately.

115 Volt Operation

As received from the factory, your bandsaw is ready to run at 115-volt operation. This bandsaw, when wired for 115 volts, is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet and a plug that looks like the one illustrated in Figure 10. A temporary adapter, like the adapter in Figure 11, may be used to connect this plug to a two-pole receptacle, as shown in Figure 11, if a properly

12

Figure 12

The 115V attachment plug supplied with the band saw must be replaced with a UL/CSA listed plug suitable for 230V operation, as shown in Figure 13. Contact your local authorized JET service center or qualified electrician for proper procedures to install the plug. The band saw must comply with all local and national codes after the 230-volt plug is installed.

The band saw with a 230-volt plug should only be connected to an outlet having the same configuration (Figure 13). No adapter is available or should be used with the 230-volt plug.

Figure 13

IMPORTANT:

In all cases (115 or 230 volts), make certain the receptacle in question is properly grounded. If you are not sure, have a registered electrician check the receptacle.

It is recommended that the JWBS-14OS Band

Saw be connected to a dedicated, minimum 15 amp circuit with a 15 amp circuit breaker or time delay fuse. Local codes take precedence over

recommendations.

Extension Cords

Use only three wire extension cords that have three-prong grounding plugs and three-pole receptacles that accept the tool’s plug.

Make sure the cord is in good condition, and heavy enough to carry the current your band saw will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in loss of power and overheating. Table 1 shows the correct size to use depending on cord length and the ampere rating on your machine’s nameplate. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the cord.

Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately.

2. Tilt table up to 45 degrees to the right or up to

10 degrees to the left. The angle can be read on the scale mounted to the trunnion.

3. Tighten two lock knobs (Figure 14).

Note:

Table stop (Figure 14) must be adjusted downward to allow the table tilt to the left.

Adjusting 90

° Table Stop

1. Disconnect machine from power source.

2. Loosen lock knobs (Figure 14) and tilt table left until it rests against the table stop.

3. Use a square placed on the table and against the blade (Figure 15) to see if the table is 90 degrees to the blade.

4. If an adjustment is necessary, loosen lock knobs, tilt table to the right, and lock in place.

5. Loosen jam nut and turn table stop (Figure 14) left or right to raise or lower the stop. Tighten jam nut to hold table stop in place.

6. Unlock table, tilt back onto table rest and confirm table is 90 degrees with the blade.

7. If necessary, adjust scale pointer to zero.

Changing Blades

Blade teeth are sharp! Use care when handling the saw blade. Failure to comply may cause serious injury.

Referring to Figure 16:

1. Disconnect machine from power source.

2. Loosen blade tension by turning the tension knob counterclockwise (A).

3. Remove the table insert (B) and table pin (C).

4. Open both wheel covers (D, E).

Figure 15

Figure 16

7. Guide new blade through table slot. Place blade in upper and lower blade guides.

Note:

The blade teeth should face the operator, and they should point down toward the table.

8. Place blade in the middle of the upper and lower wheel.

9. Re-install table insert (B) and table pin (C).

10. Tension and track blade before operating saw.

Find instructions for tensioning and tracking the blade in the Adjusting Blade Tension and

Adjusting Blade Tracking

sections.

Adjusting Blade Tension

1. Disconnect machine from power source.

2. Turn blade tension knob (Figure 17) clockwise to tension blade.

3. Apply just enough tension to take the slack out of the blade.

4. Turn one wheel a few times to move the blade to the center of the tire

5. With a meter, tension the blade appropriately for the size of blade used.

6. A gauge (Figure 17) on the upper wheel slide bracket indicates the approximate tension according to the width of the blade. Initially, set the blade tension to correspond to the blade width as marked on the gauge.

Note 1:

As you become more experienced with the saw, you may find it necessary to change the blade tension from the initial setting. Changes in blade width and the type of material being cut will have an effect on blade tension.

Note 2:

Keep in mind that too little or too much blade tension can cause blade breakage.

Adjusting Blade Tracking

Figure 17

Disconnect machine from the power source! Never adjust blade tracking with the machine running! Failure to comply may cause serious injury!

Figure 18

Tracking

refers to how the blade is situated upon the wheels while in motion. The blade should track in the center of both wheels.

The blade must be properly tensioned before adjusting blade tracking. Make sure blade guides and blade bearings do not interfere with the blade.

1. Open the top wheel cover. Rotate the wheel forward by hand, and observe the position of the blade on the wheel. It should be in the center of the wheel.

2. If adjustment is necessary, loosen wing nut

(Figure 18). Tightening the tracking knob slightly will move blade so it tracks towards the rear of machine. Loosening the tracking knob slightly will cause the blade to track toward the front of the machine.

3. After blade is tracking in the center of the wheel, tighten the wing nut.
