Expert Review

Jet is probably the biggest manufacturer of industrial belt sanders. Most of their units are floor standing units, although they do produce a number of benchtop units as well. This is the heaviest-duty of their benchtop models and probably that anyone else makes.

This monster comes with a 1-1/2 HP motor, a 6 inch by 48 inch belt sander, and a 12 inch disk sander. Everything is high quality, as one would expect from an industrial unit. It has a dual thumbscrew tracking system to make sure the belt stays on track, even when under pressure. The platen (the metal pad which backs up the sanding belt) is carbon coated for low friction and cooler running. There’s even a quick-release belt tension lever for quick belt changes. Likewise, the disk sander cover has a quick release for fast disk changes.Rating: 5/5
