This heavy duty disc sander will be an asset in any woodworking shop. It has a quiet running, continuously rated Input 750W induction motor, a 300mm diameter cast iron disc with velcro-style disc attachment and an impressively thick cast iron working table. There is a built-in brake which brings the machine to a stop in seconds. The table, which has T slots for the mitre guide and the circle sanding pivot point, can be tilted over a range of -15° to +45°, with preset stops at 90° and 45°. One of the most notable features of this sander is the fan-assisted dust extraction, unusual in a machine of this type. The flow of air generated from the back of the disc ensures that as much of the fine dust as possible is delivered to the extraction port. The port can be connected either to a fine dust extractor or, alternatively, to the optional canister filter.

|Overall L x W x H||530 x 650 x 530mm|
|Table Size||415 x 245mm|
|Abrasive Disc Diameter||300mm|

Does the job, very well.I've been a trained violin maker for 20 years and I appreciate quality tools. This machine fits a small workshop very well and is made to last. It's very solid and has less 'features' than the Axminster one which has a pivoting motor, and yes I read the in depth review of that machine so I think this Jet machine is really simple to use and really I can't fault it. The table adjustment knobs on this Jet are chunky aluminium, they're plastic Bristols on the Axminster one. The finer grit discs (180 Hermes) leave a v. good finish, the velcro system is good and stiff enough to made sanding a proper square face possible. I use it for finishing heels f/b ends end blocks, etc.....it's really versatile.

good quality, price is high but will last longer than me.I make a lot of wooden toys, so the finish is what it is all about, this sander gets me the finish I have been working so hard to get but in a lot less time. The disc change is so easy, the table adjusts easy and locks solid when in use, the price was high but I would not be with out it now.
