Jet Oscillating Sander has design flaw
I received my sander dropped shipped from Jet thru CPO. Even with the machine very well padded and packaged there was damage to one of the tabletop trunions where it bolts to the base. CPO Outlets was great to work with in getting me a new tabletop. However, the design of this critical connection is very inadequate for the size and weight of the machine. JET needs to significantly beef up the table to base connection.

Easy To Use
I have had my Jet spindle sander for 5 + years , still works like new .
My Jet spindle sander was a good investment for me, I used to spindle sand on my drill press , slow, hard on the bearings. My spindle sander is twice as fast, very easy to use with excellent results .

Somewhat Disappointed
I was concerned about shipping damage after reading other reviews, but the unit made it to Alaska in perfect condition. I am disappointed that after going to the expense of buying a 6" spindle sander, there is actually only 4.5" of sanding sleeve exposed at the peak of the oscillation. Many of my projects are about 6" thick and I need the full amount of sleeve to insure a smooth surface and avoid having to turn the project over to sand from the other side. I ordered a supply of 6" sanding sleeves before the sander arrived, but could have saved money on the larger sleeves by buying 4.5" sleeves instead. The 1/4, 1/2 and 5/8 inch sleeves need to be 6" because of the way they are fastened to the spindle, but 4.5" will suffice for the others. Also, the gears in the worm drive sound like they must have rough surfaces. The motor is very quiet, but the gears are very noisy - I hope everything holds up under use.

In spite of the above concerns, the unit seems well built and it does a good job sanding. The table was properly aligned with the spindle right out of the box.

Poor packaging
I read comments before I purchased this spindle sander. Comments that I read were; received damaged two to three times. I said to myself, what is the chances this would happen to me, well how about (3) times! This was not the fault of CPO but of Jet for their poor packaging. They had a 1" Styrofoam piece between the sander and the box. This sander weights 80 lbs so if UPS drops it just a couple of feet it's going to break something. On the first one the base was bent, on the second one the table was broken, and the third one was OK, but they sent one with the incorrect power plug (European style). I look at the data plate and it did not have 115V. like the other ones had, so I had to change out the tables. You would thing Jet would catch on after a while; I mean it has to be cheaper to package their product properly instead of having all of them returned, plus upsetting their customers! CPO sent replacements without a problem and sent call tags for UPS to pick-up. The sander does a good job and CPO is a good company, but Jet has to improve their packaging if they want to keep me as their customer! The reason for the (3) star was poor packaging!

Heavy Duty and Heavy
This unit is heavy enough to stay put on the table. Smooth oscillation with ample dust removal capability. I thought the 1.5" sleeve changes were going to be difficult but they turned out to be relatively easy. Completely disassembled to the compression bushing and pinched the end of the bushing and sleeve slides off easily.

Great Benchtop sander
Had a few issues with the first sander that I received;however CPO quickly resolved the issue. If you're looking for a spindle sander spend a little bit more for a Jet and you will not be disappointed.

Excellent replacement
We use the sander on a daily basis in the production of customer displays for our business. this was a replacement for a less expensive version and we were very pleased with differences as far as power, weight, metal rather than plastic.
We were a bit disappointed that a 3" spindle and plate had to be ordered extra, and the items were not sold as a kit even as each one had to be ordered separately; and from two sources. I say raise the price a bit and include it as well, it should make the customers happier with the machine.

What is the size range on the spindles??
Larry on Apr 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 1-1/2 and 2" are included with the machine. The 3" is optional. Sources are slim for the sanding sleeves, must go back to Jet and pay a premium there.
What projects is the sander best used for ?
A shopper on Sep 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The spindle sander is used to create a smooth, flat finish to wood pieces, mostly those that have some type of detail detailed or curved edges. The alternative would be to sand down the material manually using your hands.
