I recently purchased the Jet 22/44...

David R from OH Posted February 2, 2008
I recently purchased the Jet 22/44 Plus drum sander with closed stand and extension tables at a local woodworking shop's vendor show. The product came in four boxes containing the sander, the closed stand, the conveyor and the extension tables. The sander box has a net weight of 231 pounds. The other boxes were not labeled with weights but I could lift all of them although the box containing the closed stand was heavy. The packaging was quite good and I have found no shipping damage to any part. The four boxes took up most of the space in the back of a Chevy Colorado.Assembly is a snap. This tool is very well built and the fit and finish is impressive. Everything lined up as you would hope. The conveyor belt is shipped over-tensioned. The instructions clearly describe how to set the tension and the tracking. I had no trouble making it track almost perfectly with just a few minutes of fiddling with the two tension wrenches attached to the two sides of the conveyor. The drum carriage is cast iron. The extruded aluminum drum is 5" in diameter and 22 inches long. The conveyor mounting base is massive and gives the tool stability. The 1.75 HP motor is rated at 15.5 Amps. The Height Adjustment Handwheel is also cast and well made and the assembly it controls is also substantial. The adjustment is accurate. The overall dimensions of the assembled device without the extension tables is 37" broadside x 26" conveyor width x 51" High. With the extensions it is about 44" in the feed direction. So far I have sanded a few short oak boards, a few pine 2x4s and a glued up walnut panel. The pine 2X4s ruined a sanding strip with pine tar buildup, probably because I was being too agressive. It only took a short time to adjust the thickness adjustment to a surprising tolerance. The handwheel turns an threaded shaft with 16 threads per inch. One quarter turn is supposed to raise or lower the drum by 1/64" and mine does just that as measured by a micrometer with a dial measured in 1/64" increments. After I calibrated the scale on the sander (which they say you may have to do when you change paper grit) I set the thickness to 11/32 and ran about 15 inches of a 25 inch glue up under the sander both ways. This resulted in dead-on measurements at 10 positions along both edges. I overloaded it, too, and the automatic adjustment of the feed speed kicked in immediately. An LED indicator lets you know when this happens. I also blew a 15 amp breaker on a temporary power supply (the documentation requires a 20 amp circuit). I don't consider this an issue since this device is a sander and not a planer. I was trying to take 1/16" over a 15" swath when the breaker blew. That is too much. Changing paper is simple. The tool came with what they call a TufTool that is supposed to help you change the paper but I didn't need it. I have a Delta model AP400 dust collector and it has been able to keep up with the dust production of the sander. This tool is very well built. It is accurate. It is attractive. However, it is not inexpensive and it does require some regular maintenance (cleaning and lubricating). The closed stand comes with four fixed casters. It would be better if two of them would swivel. There is a snap ring on the end of the drum carriage that holds the drum shaft in place. This and the shaft are exposed on the outside of the carriage and if you aren't careful it looks like you could get a bit of a nip from the snap ring. So far, I am comfortable recommending this tool.

I recently purchased the 22-44 Plus...

GARY M from Royal Oak, MI Posted December 18, 2007
I recently purchased the 22-44 Plus and am very happy with it. Assembly, adjusting and sanding strip changes are all easy to perform and well described in the manual. There is even a tool to assist in securing the sanding strip, but I didn't need it. Fit and finish of the sander stand and infeed/outfeed tables was excellent.Best of all, the sanding, while a little slow is smooth and virtually dust free, while using a dust collector.My only complaint is that the sander should come with the I/O feed tables that fold up or down for storage.BTW, the Royal Oak Rockler store is Great!!

This is a really impressive sander...

Wanda J from Stanton, TX Posted December 7, 2007
This is a really impressive sander for the money. It was easy to set up and start using and having knowledgable people at the store made it even easier for me to get it set up right the first time.The only downfall to me so far is the dust collector since I think that it should have been slanted instead of straight like they have it.
