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

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?
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.
