Product Description

Product Description

This model 708404 sander is ideal for sanding contours and those hard to reach spots that other sanders just cant get to. This sander provides a scratch free finish due to the oscillating action of the spindle. Features include a 1/2HP motor, a large cast-iron table that tilts to handle all bevel sanding projects and built in dust collection. Five spindle sizes are included as standard equipment: 2", 1-1/2", 5/8", 1/2", and 1/4" as well as two round and two oblong table inserts. A larger 3" spindle is available as an accessory.

Its tilting table, spindles with threaded ends, and robust induction motor tackle the toughest sanding projects with ease.

  • Precision ball bearings and a heavy-duty worm and gear mechanism for reliability
  • A table that tilts to 45 degrees
  • Built-in storage racks for spindles and table inserts

The JBOS-5 creates a one-inch oscillating action that reduces friction heat, protecting your wood pieces and prolonging the life of the sleeve. View larger.


The five included spindle assemblies offer plenty of versatility for a wide range of projects.
Oscillation Reduces Friction and Ensures Consistency
The JBOS-5 creates a one-inch oscillating action that reduces friction heat, thereby protecting your wood pieces and prolonging the life of the sleeve. Its main spindle support also runs on precision ball bearings and is oscillated by a heavy-duty worm and gear mechanism for reliable, consistent performance job after job.

Additionally, the oscillation gears run in a sealed, lubricated box to prolong their life and durability.

Powerful Induction Motor for Reliable Performance
The JBOS-5 comes equipped with a powerful 1/2 HP induction motor that easily handles all your sanding projects. And thanks to the table inserts and a built-in, two-inch dust port, you won't have to worry about dust and debris falling into the motor and marring its performance, compromising your view of the workspace, or causing injuries and accidents.

Tilting Table for Bevel Sanding
To give you the flexibility to handle a variety of jobs and material sizes, the JBOS-5's table tilts to 45 degrees. This tilting ability also accommodates bevel sanding projects.

Safety Features for Smooth Operation
Designed for safe and smooth operation, the JBOS-5 boasts several innovative safety features. First, a removable on/off safety switch prevents accidental start-ups. There are also built-in storage racks to keep spindles and table inserts handy and within safe and easy reach. Finally, the benchtop includes four non-skid rubber feet to keep the machine stable during use.

Quick Spindle Changes and a Scratch-Free Finish
You can trust the JBOS-5 to deliver precise, quality results in less time. Spindles have threaded ends for quick, easy changes, and a one-inch spindle ensures a scratch-free finish.

The JBOS-5 measures 17 x 20.8 x 18.2 inches (WxHxL), weighs 82 pounds, and is covered 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.

What's in the Box
Complete 1/4-, 1/2-, 5/8-, 1-1/2 and two-inch spindle assemblies, two round table inserts, and two oblong table inserts.

It is very quiet while running and has no noticeable vibration.
KRASSEL
The unit is a heavy, well built piece of equipment and, certainly, would cause me to consider other Jet equipment purchases.
Dejure
As others have commented, including the 3" spindle and insert would have been nice.

*Skip to bottom of review for update*

I've had a Delta BOSS spindle sander for ~5 years and it worked well until the motor burned out. Repairing it would cost almost as much as a new one, and even if repaired its longevity was questionable (other than that I've been pleased with its performance), so I looked for a replacement and settled on the Jet. I've used the Jet and it does the job intended. However, it has some areas in which it could be easily improved. Following are some comparisons between the Jet and the Delta.

1) The Jet is slightly quieter than the Delta, but not a lot - neither is a loud tool.
2) The Delta's round table is larger than the Jet's square one. The Jet's table is beefier (the Delta's never showed any tendency to flex).
3) The Delta's base is plastic, while the Jet is all metal. The feet for the Delta are molded into its base, with non-skid rubber inserts attached - all four of the molded feet are cracked, though this never caused a problem. The Jet has non-slip feet as well, and given the construction I don't think they'll be cracking or breaking off.
4) The Delta's mechanism is simple and looked robust enough. I've read that people have had problems with the nylon drive gear - I did not. However, the cover for the gears broke off at some point.
5) The Delta's steel table inserts fit around the spindles well (one for each spindle), with a pattern cut into them to improve dust collection. Delta has modified the BOSS since, and I don't know if its inserts are still steel. There are fewer inserts (also steel) for the Jet (one size is used for multiple spindles). The table inserts in the Jet aren't flush with the cast iron table top, necessitating shimming them.
6) The Delta has storage for all its accessories.

I too want to thank all the contributors who took the time to write a review on this great machine. It definitly influenced my decision to buy the Jet JBOS5. The table on mine was perfect right out of the box and only required getting the shipping gunk off before it was ready to use. It is very quiet while running and has no noticeable vibration. It is heavy enough to not need clamping to the work table while in use. I use the smaller spindles more than the larger one's and have not had a problem with bending them as some of the reviewers have. I make a lot of Bandsaw box's and this tool makes sanding the inside of the drawer cavities a dream. Can't believe I spent the last few years sanding them by hand. The built in dust collection system seems to work ok, still end up with a little dust on the table but the majority of it goes out the hose. I made some inserts to use with the smaller spindles (plexiglas) but the ones that come with the machine are certainly adequate to the task. I haven't felt the need for the 3" spindle as I don't do much furniture work, but this machine has plenty of "ummph" to power a spindle of that size if necessary. I have reccommended it to several friends and would reccommend it to anyone. It definitly is a cut above the delta and ryobi offerings.
UPDATE....Nov 2004....I've had this machine for over a year now and am still impressed with it's performance. Can't even estimate how many board feet of wood this sander has cleaned up. Anyone who has tried to sand out bandsaw blade marks on the inside of a box will come to love this thing. I recently purchased an extra set of spindles, so I can have two grit's available. Changing spindles is easier and faster than changing grit size on the spindles.

Verified Purchase
This sander kicks. I got the first one, and for some reason, the motor was off center, so it was much closer to the edge of one of the rings. It must have been an assembly problem. It's brand new, so rather than fuss with it, I called Amazon, and they promptly sent a replacement. That is why I deal with Amazon. On to the new sander.
This is a heavy, approx 80 pound, cast iron top, benchtop sander. The cast iron top is rock solid, smooth, straight, and even all the way across it's ground polished surface. I'm a critical nut, use a dial caliper to measure things, use the Incra table saw fence, which is accurate to within .002" inch. So when I talk about this Jet sander, keep that in mind.
Right out of the box, I used the Bosch digital protractor (another highly recommended item) which measures angles in tenths of a degree. (Equal to 3600 dots in a circle), and the spindle was accurate to within 7/10ths of one degree at the most extreme angle, and within 1 or 2/10ths of a degree at the others. So you could say right out of the box it was not off by even one degree. The best you can expect to get for measuring an upright metal shaft, with an expandable thick rubber tube, designed to squash out to hold a circular sleeve of sandpaper. For all intents and purposes, that it dead on. :-)
This does not pertain to the built in rule, you use to set the top to 90 degree, 45 degrees, or whatever tilting angle you may choose. After you perfectly set the top with any 90 degree square, it is advisable to loosen the setting screw, and fine adjust the pointer. See mention of this farther into the review.
It would be a lot easier to simply say, this Jet Benchtop Oscillating Spindle Sander is perfectly dead on, but then again, perfect is a relative term.
