Jet JWS-22CS, 1-1/2 HP Shaper
Jet's contender in this range has a 1-1/2 HP motor which turns at either 7,000 or 9,000 RPM, depending on your selection. It also works with both 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch spindles, like the other units we've looked at. However, in this case, the spindle travel is only 1-7/16-inch. The cast-iron table is 22-3/8-inch by 18-1/8-inch. Actually, the unit is a lot like the Grizzly. Like the others, it has a wood faced, cast-iron fence, which is set by screw controls. The major reason why I placed the Grizzly before this unit was price. This one is quite a bit more expensive.
