Cut your sanding time up to 75 percent with the JET 629004K 16-32 Plus 16-Inch 1-1/2 HP Open Stand Drum Sander, 110-Volt 1 Phase. This innovative tool elevates the primary woodworking tasks of sanding from long and slow to short and fast. Ideal for small commercial shops, this tool can be used in lieu of a planer, and it provides ample capacity to handle both small and large jobs with ease.
The JET 16-32 Plus 16-Inch
Open Stand Drum Sander offers:
- Two powerful, TEFC motors
- Patented conveyor belt "trackers" that eliminate the need for manual belt adjustments
- An open frame design for sanding pieces up to 32 inches wide with two passes
- A safety keyed on/off switch with overload protection controls
Easy-to-use adjusters make compensating for belt stretch simple, fast, and tool-free.
A large crank changes the height of the sanding drum and ensure precision cut depth changes are easy to make.
Precision Drum for Long, Smooth Operating Life
Twin motors provide the sanding power you need.
The drum is specifically designed to run smoothly and dissipate heat.
A large, four-inch dust port helps keep your shop clean.
The ability to safely sand wood from 3 inches thick to 1/32 inch ensures versatility.
At the heart of the 16-32 Plus is the sanding drum, which is specifically designed for smooth running and the dissipation of heat. Measuring 16 inches in length with a five-inch diameter, this precision-machined and balanced extruded aluminum drum is self-cooling to help prevent heat-related damage of the wood or sanding strip under load. For added peace of mind, the sanding drum turns on sealed and permanently lubricated one-inch-diameter ball bearings for a long, smooth operating life.
Additionally, the drum height and downward roller pressure are both user adjustable to virtually eliminate snipe.
Handles a Wide Range of Material Sizes
The 16-32 Plus handles a wide range of material sizes quickly and easily. It can sand materials as thick as three inches, as thin as 1/32 inch, and anywhere in-between. Unlike planers--which often have a minimum length requirement of a foot or more--the 16-32 Plus can safely handle pieces as short as 2-1/4 inches.
The open frame design also lets you sand pieces measuring up to 32 inches wide by making two passes. Additionally, a camber adjustment makes it easy to prevent "witness marks" when making two passes on wide boards.
Infinitely Variable Feed Rate for Flexibility
The infinitely variable feed rate and the wide range of sanding grits available combine to handle fast rough work or fine sanding on any species of wood. At the same time, the generous, stable conveyor platform makes turning material very accurate while smoothing the surface at the same time.
Dual Motors for Power and Control
The 16-32 Plus comes equipped with two high quality motors: a 1-1/2 HP, (rated using continuous duty cycle) 1 phase, 110-volt, 14 Amp motor that spins the sanding drum at a consistent 1725 RPM, and a direct drive 43 in./lbs. torque motor that drives the conveyor belt separately. Both are TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled) motors designed to operate in a potentially dusty environment.
For added protection, a safety keyed on/off switch with overload protection controls the sanding drum and is front-mounted for operating convenience. And an infinitely variable-speed control on the conveyor belt produces the ultimate finish at a rate from zero to 10 feet per minute.
Patented Trackers for Quick and Easy Adjustments
Jet's patented conveyor belt "trackers" eliminate the need for manual belt adjustments, ensuring precise results. Independent tracking adjusters on either side of the conveyor are easily accessible and simple to use should tracking adjustments become necessary--as when a new conveyor belt may need slight tracking or tensioning adjustments after it breaks in.
Reinforced Steel Conveyor Bed and No-Give Power Feed for Consistency
A precision-flattened reinforced steel conveyor bed holds the stock flat during sanding. A reliable no-give power feed belt provides a consistent, smooth sanding action to provide the finest results.
Dust Port for Efficient Dust Collection
To help maintain healthy air quality in your shop, and to make sure your vision isn't obscured by dust, the hinged top cover has a four-inch diameter dust port molded into the upper shroud to help evacuate most of the dust created as you work. Connect to an efficient dust collector like the JET DC1100 for best results.
Performax Spring Clip for Quick Changes
The 16-32 Plus also includes a special spring clip invented by Performax that holds the end of the sandpaper roll. This clever invention makes for quick and easy paper changes, saving you time and stress.
The 16-32 Plus weighs 145 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.
