Description

In Detail

The disc sander is fully enclosed and has a finely ground table with a precision alloy mitre fence. The table can be tilted through 45° with preset stops at 45° and 90°. Along the top of the table are two T slots machined 90° apart which will accommodate either the mitre fence or the circle sanding point (supplied as standard). The 150mm wide belt can be used in either the vertical or horizontal plane and has a fully adjustable and well machined table from which to work in the upright position. A graphite slipper plate sits directly behind the sanding area, reducing friction and ensuring greater belt life. A 100mm dust extraction outlet is positioned behind the machine; this extracts from both sides of the machine without the need for hose re-positioning. The sander can be mounted straight onto a bench or onto the optional closed stand but please note that it is supplied as standard in bench mounting form; if it is to be floor standing the optional closed stand (which also incorporates retractable wheels allowing the sander to be easily moved when not in use) will need to be ordered. Supplied with an abrasive belt and disc, mitre fence, circle sanding accessory and service tools.

A reasonably powerful, but flawed and disappointing machine

It seems to be impossible to find a decent 'light trade' belt and disc sander here in the UK. One sturdy and powerful enough to do precise sanding jobs on a daily basis without breaking the bank. There are wobbly hobby machines for one or two hundred, or beautiful professional machines for two to four thousand. So I had my doubts before I decided to buy the Jet JSG-96 as the best of the bunch that sit between these two extremes. Sadly my doubts were well founded. The JSG-96 has been around for over 10 years, and earlier models are described as having a cast iron base. Axminster list the weight of this machine as 60kg, which led me to believe that it still had a cast iron base. The machine is heavy, but nowhere near 60kg. Axminster do not mention that the base is made from pretty thin (1/8th of an inch) flimsy plastic, with small metal inserts for tool mounting and bench fixings. An idiotic cost saving exercise that significantly compromises the performance of this machine!
The good points:
The motor is reasonably powerful and fairly quiet.
The 9" disc was flat and runs true (unlike those on other reviewers machines - there seems to be quite a problem with quality control at Jet)
The 6" belt runs smoothly, is easily changed and can be run horizontally, vertically, or anywhere in between by loosening one allen bolt.
The sanding table for the 9" disc is rather nice - a good shape, in heavy cast iron, adjustable between 90 degrees and 45 degrees, with slots for the provided mitre guide and also a rather neat little gadget for centring a workpiece to sand a perfect circle.
There is also a mounting point for this table so that it can be used with the belt sander running vertically.
There is a full-size dust extraction port at the back, with two gates, to target extraction on either the belt, or disc, or both, and dust collection is not bad, even with a fairly low horsepower extractor.
Now for the bad points:
That idiotic, plastic base. This compromises the otherwise excellent cast iron sanding table, because it allows the table's post mounting (both at the disc and belt mounting positions) to flex the base, meaning that the table moves out of adjustment as soon as any load is applied. (I have mounted the sander on an extra wide wooden base, which allows me to fit my own, custom-made, jig underneath the elbow of the support arm to prevent the worst of this flex when used with the disc).
The dedicated sanding table for the belt sander is cheap aluminium, not cast iron, and is very fiddly to attach and remove - Jet uses two levers, one of which fouls against the motor housing, so fiddling about with a screwdriver and engaging and disengaging the lever constantly, is needed every time the sanding table is fitted or removed.
And no matter how hard the locking levers are cranked down, the table does not remain perpendicular to the sanding belt - immediately drifting out of true as soon as any load is applied, meaning that it is only really useful as a sanding stop. (Again, I have made my own jig, to fit between the aluminium sanding table and the plastic base, to help support it and stop it drifting out of true when running the belt vertically, but this does not cure the problem completely).
Bottom line:
Would I recommend this machine? No.
Will I be returning it to Axminster? Sadly no. But only because I have not been able to find any other machine on the UK market that is better quality without paying thousands. A real gap in the market. I don't feel it is acceptable on a machine that advertises itself as 'Heavy Duty' to have such a flimsy plastic base, needing homemade jigs, just to stop the thing flexing! I would happily have paid the marginal extra cost to have the original cast iron base.
