JET Cyclone Dust Collectors Takes Vortex to Next Level

Dust Management System

The technology of dust collection has certainly changed over the years. There are really no excuses with such a wide range of options and very low entry level price points for collecting and handling dust. These new Jet Cyclone Dust Collectors are a great example of 3 machines that can handle production level work for a very reasonable price tag.

Jet Hoists and Lifting Systems, New Innovations Mean Top Safety

Jet Hoists Breakdown

If you were to ask most people in a plant or on a job site how could manual and electric hoists be improved you first two answers are probably going to be make them safer and able to last longer. While Jet has not always been a product leader, over the past several years they have really begun to lead the way in innovating products for many categories and lifting systems is a shining example of that. The need for better safety in lifting systems have lead to several industry firsts from Jet.

Jet L100 Chain Fall

On the Jet manual chain hoists L-100 series several new features really separate the Jet product from the rest of the professional grade competition of Harrington CB, CM (Columbus McKinnon) Cyclone 646 or Coffing LHH. Each of these brands has a mid-range less expensive unit as well as a higher-end offering. Many people, including myself at one point thought the higher priced units (L-100 vs S-90) simply meant better chain (100 grade corrosion resistant zinc coated vs 80 grade black oxide coated) which is true but that’s just the beginning. Another huge differentiator for Jet is the 1 piece fused brake design which is guaranteed for life and as of the publishing of this story they have not had to replace a single one of these breaks due to failure. The more traditional 3 piece break system is what is used by Harrington, CM & Coffing on all their hoists in addition to Jet’s mid-range S90 chain hoists. (more…)

Jet Bandsaw JWBS-14SF

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. (more…)
