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
One sander assembly, one handwheel with handle, one TUF tool, one abrasive strip (wrapped on the drum), one conveyor belt (attached to the base), owner's manual, warranty card, one hardware bag (to attach the sander to the optional open stand) containing four 3/8-inch to 16 x 5/8-inch hex cap screws and four 3/8-inch flat washers.

IF YOU DO NOT LOOSEN THESE TWO NUTS YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO ADJUST THE TRACKING AND THE BELT WILL ONLY MOVE ON THE RIGHT SIDE BUT NOT THE LEFT - DO THIS PEOPLE! - THE MACHINE WORKS GREAT! AND I PERFORM GREAT WORK WITH IT!!!
Do this at your own risk. These are just my experiences, nothing more.
1) The overload protection switch on the front that Jet uses is the wrong size. Everyone know this sander constantly turns off. If you ask for a repair they will send you more switch and they will still stop the motor without taking off a 1/32" . Simply bypass this overload protection switch. It's not needed. I have tested the current draw of the machine and the overload switch they use cut the machine out at less than 3 amps, this is a 7 amp motor! After taking the switch out of the loop I can never get the sander to pull 7 amps anyhow, but if I really push it(like forcing an 1/8" which no drum sander can ever do)the motor can stop. I thought oh crap I fried it, but the motor was not hot. I turned the machine off and on and it fired right back up so the motor itself must have some kind of protection! The last 4 months my house 15 amp circuit never blew(and I use a 12 foot cord!), the motor never gets hot and I never stalled the motor again becasue I simply dont need to take off that much at one time. I stick to a 1/4 turn at a time.. So after 4 months of use I can say its a safe mod FOR ME. Why in the world this doesn't have the sandmart system like the 16-32 and 22-44 (I won both) is beyond me.
2) Learn to use the curved pliers technique as described in another review to tight the sanding belts or they will never stay tight. Or go to Woodmaster and purchase their sandpaper Velcro system and make the machine hook and loop. I just use the pliers.
3) I have never had an issue with tracking of the conveyor. I know from my other Jet drum sanders that you must make super small adjustments and then run the machine for 5 minutes, then adjust again. Yes, it take that long for the tracking belt to adjust to the screw turns. After the conveyor was adjusted straight I have not had to pay with it since, for 4 months.
4) The dust collection really should be on top like all the other drum sander, that in itself could warrant a star being taken off, I dint take one off for that only becasue I wanted people to understand that this is a good sander with user intervention and get their attention with the 4 stars. In other words if there were zero issues just the placement of the dust collection port could make this 4 stars.
If you do the 3 things I mentioned this is a 4 or 5 star sander in in it's category. Off the rack one star. Now I know many will say I shouldn't have to do this and I agree, BUT there is just nothing as good on the market in this size right now. I have tried the Grizzly and the clones and this is the best if you do the mods. So much so its worth doing the mods.
Jet add sandsmart and move the dust pot to the top and you would have a heck of a tool here!
The picture is deceptive. The support on the outer edge is below the feed belt and does not interfere when finishing a board 10-20" wide. Also the feed belt and sanding belt have separate on/off controls, including speed of the feed belt, thus set up has a learning curve. Changing the paper is a bit of a pain, so moving through the grits is a big chunk of your work time unless you have a lot of wood all at once. I tend to stick with the coarser grits on the belt to get the surface flat and do the finish grit sequence with a random orbital sander. If you prepare the piece with a surface planer or jointer to near-final thickness, one grit around 100 will remove the planer marks.
