Most used tool in my shop
I do some "standard" woodworking but my primary focus is the building of radio controlled model airplanes. It seems most parts I create are cut on a scroll saw and are fine tuned on a disc sander. I upgraded to the Jet 12" sander after having a lesser tool purchased from a big box store. This machine is far and above anything from a big box store. It has all the power I need and the cast iron table is rock solid, not to mention accurate in its alignment.

The machine creates its own dust control via a squirrel cage type fan. The amount of air coming out of the dust port is impressive. You can hook it up to a 4" dust collector for heavy use, add a filter, or just aim it out the garage door.

100% satisfied
Short of going for a 20 inch floor model this is the pro grade option for a space restricted shop. Smooth and quiet, a joy to use. Ive worked as a pattern maker in a large shop where we had the big boy sanders (38") so I didnt want a home handy man machine. This one is ideal for my needs.

Easy To Use
Solid piece of equipment
In this day and age and at this price point there should be an electronic brake instead of the weenie disk brake that I suspect will wear our in short order.
