Whether you're removing a large amount of stock or just making the finest changes, this Jet belt/disc sander is definitely up to the task. A 3/4-horsepower motor supplies all the power you need for serious stock removal, and the platen has a graphite sheet that helps keep things cool, so you get more life out of both the sander and the belts.

The 9-inch disc sander's table is a generous 7-1/2-by-12-inch cast iron surface, with preset stops at 45 and 90 degrees for reliable angles and nice miter gauge T-slots parallel and perpendicular to the disc. But even better, we think, is the belt sander that operates both horizontally and vertically -- and everywhere in between. The table isn't as large as that of the disc sander, but it's really not necessary, and it functions nicely as a work stop in the horizontal position. The only thing we don't like -- and it's a matter of preference, really -- is that we found the power switch awkward to reach when using the belt sander in the flat position, as it's on the other side of the tool.

Adjustments are all quick and easy, especially changing out the belt. All it takes is a flip of the quick-release belt tension lever, and you'll be back to work in a minute. Tracking is an easy task as well, one we appreciate that Jet made so simple. First, pull up the handle of the tracking lock, then just turn the adjusting knob until the belt is centered on the platen. Lock the handle again, but watch carefully: You may need to fine-tune with the knob again, as the belt tends to shift slightly to the left when the tracking lock is engaged again. Once centered, though, the belt will stay put, thanks to the rubber-coated drive drum that keeps a good grip on the sanding belt.

One of the things we liked best about this sander is its clean dust-collection setup. One 4-inch port on the base directs the lion's share of sawdust into your system, whether you're using the belt or the disc. There's even an integrated blast gate to direct the suction to whichever sander you're working.

This is a hefty machine, and though it's possible to bolt it to a workbench or buy a separate stand for it, it feels very stable when simply placed on a flat surface like a workbench, and in a smaller shop, that's a great advantage.

Fit and finish are, of course, excellent, as with any Jet tool, and any woodworker will find a thousand uses for this versatile, hardworking machine in the shop. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste

By James McComas on August 3, 2005
This belt sander fully meets my needs. I'm into making segmented bowls, and use this machine to flatten the segments for final glueing. Assembly of the machine was easy, and the belt adjusts accurately. Using the belt in either horizonal or vertical position is a convenient feature. The sander comes with a sturdy steel open base, which wasn't mentioned in the Amazon write-up. I replaced the casters with with lockable wheels to make the sander mobile in my small shop.

The first unit arrived with a horribly mis-machined (1/4 inch + of lateral runout!!) disc sanding platen!! I wonder how this ever made it through Jet quality control, or if they even have such a department. I sent it back, hopeful the replacement would be functional. I received that replacement today and am sorely disappointed. The second machine was better, with less than 1/10 of an inch of runout, which is still horrible. I am therefore sending the latest quality disaster back for a full refund (Amazon's service has been great, by the way).

Tonight I searched for a replacement and decided upon the Shop Fox W1676. It has a more powerful motor, a closed base, and rave reviews. More telling was the fact that two of those reviewers had initially purchased the same Jet sander as I had, received multiple defective units, and finally decided upon a refund and the Shop Fox sander. They are happy now, just as I expect to be next week when my Shop Fox arrives

I have received 6 different Jet machines within the past week (setting up a new woodshop) and prior to this experience returned one of another type (air filtration) because all of the accessory parts were missing. That corresponds to a 50% failure rate overall, which is shocking.

As an engineer, I am astonished. Machining this poor, quality control this abysmal, simply does not happen in today's world - except at Jet. I am also very concerned, as I have 2 other Jet machines still in shipment that I cannot now cancel. Do more surprises await?

I'm a hobbyist who has done a few commercial projects and am quite happy with this sander. Its very heavy-duty not only in its power but also the construction of its base. The machine has more than enough power and with the 80-grit belt it came with, I was asking myself why I hadn't purchased it before this time. I zipped through some corner and end pieces with very little elbow grease needed. (I decided to spend more money for the Jet as opposed to saving money on a Delta based on reviews I've read and again am quite happy with my decision.)

My only slight knock against the machine is that the on/off power button is located on the opposite side of the machine from the belt sander in its horizontal position which makes it cumbersome to turn off.

I bought this sander about a year ago. I have been disapointed with it's performance. The housing is plastic and the cast iron table mount into the plastic base lacks rigidity. this makes it hard to sand anything square considering the attractive looking table with it's 90 degree slots. The attachment bolts for the belt table are difficult to work because of he lack of clearance. You also have to remove the belt table in order to change the belt. In hind sight I would have bought a more exspensive sander with a cast iron base. Consider what plastic does if you were to sand metal. The graphite on the belt platten wore off right away. It seems a wasted addition.

All my tools are Jet, I buy them for my university wood shop as well. However, I have purchased two in a row of these belt/disc sanders and the disc was either broken or warped. Two in a row is bad. The Jet technician basically blew it off when I called and said they had not had any problems with these even though he knew exactly what I was talking about. An Amazon rep I spoke with said they had others that were returned. Quality control is obviously not important for this product that is, by-the-way, manufactured in Taiwan.

I thought this would be A heavy duty sander. When it showed up I was disappointed.All guards were Plastic.The disc sander table was not as sturdy as I thought it would or should be.It works ok but for the money it is pretty disappointing. This is not much better than the small portable bench top model I got rid of . I would think twice before I replaced this with the same.

I have used quite a few different combo sanders, this is by far the worst, the chassis is all plastic, thin plastic, the nice heavy cast iron table for the disc just flops around because it mounts into the housing. Worst.

Very high quality sander. What I have come to expect under the JET brand. Tons of power, smooth and quiet. I have it connected to my central dust collector through the 4" port and it does a great job of keeping the dust at bay. I did have to return the first one I received due to damage in shipment. It's very heavy so suggest beefing up the packaging for transport.
