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.

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.

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.

Sanding Sleeves hard to get
I can see where the availability of the sanding sleeves and their price would prohibit many people from purchasing a jet spindle sander. even tho it is a sweet machine. I would only recommend this machine with the above caution.

Quality benchtop spindle sander
Great value in a spindle sander - it has been able to handle everything I have needed it to do without the cost of a floor model sander. I built a rolling storage cart that it sits on for mobility. I also have it hooked up to my centralized dust collection system which keeps the dust down to a minimum. You will need some adapters to reduce the DC to the smaller port size. The large (3") diameter spindle is optional and a bit pricey - it is handy though.

Is there a stand with this sander??? Can I order one?
Mike on Oct 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Many of the woodworking specialty stores carry generic stands for portable tools. Try welding supply stores as they often have stands for grinders that might fit the bill. In any case, I suspect you'll have to improvise a bit. You may have to make a plywood top for a generic stand and then bolt or clamp the sander to it. Cheers!
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.
