Thanks to its extra large, 9.5 x 31.75-inch worktable, the JMD-18 gives you the freedom to tackle larger scale projects that require more space and flexibility. And the included worklamp provides ample illumination of any size work piece, even in dim conditions.
2 HP Motor and Hinged Belt Cover for Power and Fast Results
The JMD-18 operates with a powerful UL-listed, 2 HP, one phase, 230-volt motor that gives the tool a range of 12 spindle speeds from 15 to 3,000 RPM. And to minimize delays and wait periods as you transition to different speeds, this motor is also supported by a hinged belt cover that offers faster speed changing.
Cast Iron Column and Heavy-Duty Roller Bearings for Support and Stability
The JMD-18 has a strong, supportive design. First, a one-piece cast iron column offers additional support where you need it, giving you the freedom to handle heavier material without worry. And heavy-duty, tapered roller bearings support the spindle for greater tolerance and more accurate drilling depth.
Easy-Read Depth Gauge and 360-Degree Swiveling Head for Precision
Easy to operate, the JMD-18 offers user-friendly features, like satin finished easy-read dials, to guide you through every step of your project. A positive quick-stop knob combines with an easy-to-read internal depth gauge for consistency, while a 360-degree swiveling head gives you the flexibility you need for precise results.
The JMD-18 is backed by a two year warranty.
About JET: A History of Sharing New, Feature-Rich Products
Opened in 1958 after the founder of the company, Leslie P. Sussman, took the first Boeing Jet Airplane trip from Seattle, Washington to Japan, JET began as a small dealer that sold air hoists and trolleys out of a single hardware store in Seattle. Over the years, JET has carried everything from snowmobiles, transmitter radios, and forklifts to nylon stockings, but by the early 1970s, metalworking had become the base of their business line. And by the 1980s, JET had expanded into the realm of woodworking. Today, you'll find that JET offers a wide range of popular woodworking tools that are backed with best-in-class features and excellent service.

Top Customer Reviews
I use it also to do light milling with aluminum. It does a satisfactory job with that. I'm happy with the results. I think that if I were to do only milling and I had to do complicated parts, this mill would not be enough. Running the table back and forth manually can get pretty boring.
There is only one thing that I do not like and that is to raise the head, I have to loosen the clamp that holds the head from moving right or left. So when I raise the head, I can't garantee that I'm still where I want to be. As a result, I have to recenter my work.
The machine is very heavy. Jet installs an eye bolt on top so that you can hoist it up onto your stand. I like this very much. I built a solid stand for it out of 2x6's and that has been very stable.
The mill/drill has been very reliable. I use it every day and I have had no maintenance problems.
As a drill press with wood, you'll not find anything better. As a mill with metal, it's pretty good. And for the price you are paying. This is very good value.
A milling machine is the heart of a machine shop.
If this is your first milling machine, expect to
spend and equal amount on the tooling you will need
to make it work. A clamping kit, an assortment of end mills
chucks and holders, a vice, a rotary table, an indexing head
and more will all be required to round out the purchase.
Horesepower translates into speed of material removal.
Bigger bits require greater power.
This is just a starter mill and you will want to upgrade
to something costing ten or twenty times as much when you
want to do production work as this one is all hand cranked
and requires a skilled operator to run it.
Did I mention that it cuts wood etc.? There are even machinable
ceramics which it can handle.
Again, expect to double the price (as a ballpark est.) on any
machine tool by the time it you are done. And plan to put it on
a solid foundation, not in your livingroom.
I use mine (a Jet VMM626) to make thermoplastic injection molds.
