The 628900 features infinitely variable speed control to produce the ultimate finish at a rate from zero to 12 feet per minute. This design also prevents machine overload and combines with sealed and permanently lubricated drum ball bearings for longer life.
Patented "Trackers" and Steel Conveyor Belt for Consistency
Patented conveyor belt "trackers" dramatically reduce the need for manual belt adjustments. Additionally, the precision-flattened reinforced steel conveyor bed and no-give power feed belt provide a constant smooth sanding action for better, more consistent results.
Cast-Iron Handwheel and Adjustable Drum Height for Precision
To ensure precision, the cast-iron handwheel adjusts height at 1/16 inch per turn for sanding thickness control and precise stock removal, and the drum height and downward pressure are both adjustable to virtually eliminate snipe.
Continuous Duty Motor for Optimum Control
The 628900 comes equipped with a continuous duty, 1 HP motor specially designed for heavier use for longer periods of time. This one-motor/one-feed model also allows for superior sanding control.
Operator-Friendly Design Improves Productivity
Made to be operator-friendly, the 628900 boasts patented abrasive take-up fasteners for quick and easy changes. Its on/off switch with overload protection is front-mounted for effortless accessibility and to help prevent accidental start-ups. This drum sander also includes a four-inch dust port to help keep your workspace clean.
The 628900 requires minimal assembly, measures 20 x 20 x 27 inches (WxHxD), weighs 104 pounds, and is backed by a five-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.
