Talk about power
Replaced old delta belt sander with new Jet sander. Other than the size of it being a little difficult to move in a small shop, you just cant beat the power of Jet tools.

Many uses in the shop!
I seem to find more and more uses for this tool. I hate sanding, so anything that makes it easier is a plus. This sander gets used on almost every project in one way or another. It excels at edging up to a rough cut line after bandsawing shapes. Hook it up to your dust collection system and there's no mess after sanding either. Mostly used for outside radius and flat edge sanding - use the oscillating spindle sander for inside curves.

Good solid sander
I like the solid feel and big belt and disk. I had trouble setting it up. The side door was assembled inside the belt frame and wouldn't open. I had to swing the belt unit to the point where it was overlapping the least and pry it loose with a screwdriver. Lost some paint but it saved me sending it back. It works fine now except the belt table slips a bit. I am sanding 4 pound frame assemblies in the vertical position which may be more than it was designed for. I have to true it up every couple of units as it tilts. I need to get a vac attached to it soon because it takes down material and generates dust FAST. I also need to bolt it down. I'm pushing it across the bench. Laying down the sander may fix both problems but it makes it hard to reach on my higher bench. I'm afraid it will eat up too much material laying on the belt.

P.S. My wife says the whole house rumbles when I'm using it though I think it is running smoothly.

Manufacturer Defect Corrected
Much of the power tools and machinery in my shop are Jet, this is why I chose not to buy a lighter/cheaper belt/disc sander combo. Right out of the box, the aluminum disc was badly warped, so asked CPO Jet for a replacement rather than return everything. They responded immediately, as did the manufacturer/distributor with a disc that appears to have been machined to correct a known defect.

I question Jet's quality control
I have a lot of Jet equipment. It is good stuff, but I am less impressed this year then in the past. The sander is my second Jet purchase this year. The plastic base is unimpressive. I would prefer metal. The metal disk on the disc sander was cracked and bent. I mean visibly cracked and bent. Given its location and the machine, it had to be in this condition when installed. I consider that poor quality control. Earlier this year I purchased the Jet 8 inch bench grinder. The wheel flanges were so lopsided that the wheels could be balanced. Again, poor quality control. A call to customer service and replacement parts were at my doorstep in a few days. However, it should not work that way, at least that is how I feel.

When I get it working it will be great
This sanding unit has been around for several years yet the manufacture has not change the packaging, the unit I received was broken. The 9"sanding Disk platen was broke because it was connected to the motor in the box. When the motor shifted the Disk was damaged. CPO has ordered a replacement sanding Disk so I am not able to say much about it's ability. The large belt sander works great I have used it several times and happy with it can do.

The aluminum 9" disc is not mounted at 90 degrees parallel to the motor. There are no instructions on how to adjust (I am NOT talking about how to adjust the table to the disk). I would rather not return if this defect in assembly can be fixed.
