Great Tool
Like most I have limited dollars and shop space. I decided to shop for a planer and was about to buy a Dewalt when I ran across this Drum Sander. I decided it could do much of the things I wanted from a planer: taking rough stock down to a desired thickness AND could perform a second function -- flat sanding uneven boards and even sanding to a level just below final finish sanding. I like making cutting boards, serving trays, and plaques for awards for friends. This JET unit is exactly what I needed. It really works well!!! ONLY 2 complaints: the dust exhaust port is right above the outfeed and the dust collection hose must be held up somehow to keep the workpiece from binding ... but it REALLY collects the dust!!! Second complaint is keeping the conveyor belt tracking correctly .... regular adjustments ...... but easy to do. Bottom line: GREAT TOOL AND A GREAT BUYING DECISION !!!

Jet 10" Thickness sander
The sander came set up and ready to use. All I had to do was uncrate it, set it on the bench and plug it in. Seems to be well made. I used it to sand some pen blanks and small turning pieces to size. worked very well for this. the IB says to not try and take more than 1/32" or so off at a time, and the sander will bog down and stop if you try and take off more than that at one pass. Even with the 80 grit belt, I got smooth pieces, and when I connect my dust collector to the sander I get zero dust. All in all, I am happy with this sander.

Every thing I could ask for.
I build stringed musical instruments and Shaker boxes and this is perfect for reducing the materials to their necessary thickness. My planer is good for gross material removal but the drum sander can't be beat for finishing without the checking produced by the planer on figured wood.

An easy tool to use with great results
Learning curve for the inboard belt clip. At last I can sand pieces perfectly flat for gift projects.

Excellent machine except ,,,,
I just received it. The tool is well designed and thoughtfully laid out except for the ridiculous 'clamps' used to hold the sandpaper in place. This is a drum sander, so this truly aggravating design is appalling.

Don't waste your money on this sander.
I have been a professional woodworker for over 35 years. I have owned a number of pieces of woodworking tools and equipment thru the years. I still own a Jet oscillating sander I have owned for at least 15 years, I am quite happy with. This sander is a big disappointment. No matter what I do I can not get the lower drive belt to track correctly. I should have spent more money and purchase a better, more reputable piece of equipment. This is truly a piece of JUNK.. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY !!!

Worth Every Ounce of its Weight
I purchased the Jet 10-20 Plus as a small-shop solution for consistent thickness on soundboards, backs, and sides for guitars, ukuleles, and other stringed instruments.

I consider myself fairly frugal, and would much rather re-saw and thickness bulk lumber than pay the outrageous prices others charge for the same services. Before getting this Drum Sander I was using a modified spindle sander to get decent, but inconsistent thickness on pieces up to 3" wide. Handy, except that I needed 4-5" pieces just as often.

With the single-feed width of 10" on the Jet 10-20 Plus, I can re-saw and plane my wood, edge and glue as a book-matched set, then use this drum sander to produce the final piece at a precise thickness. Easily controlled in 1/64" increments, with speed control for the conveyor belt to account for wood density, I simply couldn't ask for more.

I love this product! I recently had a stroke and was able to use this product very easily. Sands very smoothly and accurately. I only have use of my left arm and can operate this easily. When vacuum system is hooked up, it eliminates any dust.

Perfect for segmenting turning blanks
I bought the Jet 10-20 primarily for flattening glue ups for segmented turining blanks. My lathe has a 12" capacity, so the 10" width capacity of the sander means I rarely need to flip the blanks. I generally take off 1/64" per pass, and the sander has handled this easilly at high feed speeds with 80 grit paper.

Belt tracking was easy to adjust following the instructions - I did initially over-adjust; let the feed belt make many revolutions before you judge your adjustments. Once adjusted, it has stayed right on the money.

I have not changed sandpaper yet, but I am sure the first few times will be a challenge, based on other reviews.

Overall, a great machine in a lightweight compact format that will do a great job if you respect its limitations.
