Fantastic Sander

Joe Posted November 9, 2014
After looking and talking to the guys at Rockler in Buffalo ,NY about this sander for sometime I decided to buy it. Wow made my life so much easier sanding doors. A little touch up with the hand sander and I'm done. Thanks Guys at Rockler

Superb machine

Dennis, Breezy Woodshop Posted December 31, 2013
Works wonderfully. Watch the cd and read the instructions, very easy to read and understand. It just takes a little practice to find your way around the machine. My first piece I used it for was a 28" wide table top. Came out as smooth and flat as a piece of paper. I used to do it with hand planes but my hands are becoming arthritic and has become difficult for me. This machine sure saves on pain. I highly recommend it.

What a great machine! Excellent fine...

Joseph F from Morgan Hill, CA Posted February 10, 2012
What a great machine! Excellent fine sanding control of thin 1/8" materials in small pieces under 1" wide and 4" long. Make sure you go through all of the adjustments in the manual to "fine tune" the machine. The manual is well written and easy to follow.The only problem I had was the conveyor belt drive failed after two uses. Calling Jet Walter Meier Mfg they described a simple procedure to test whether it was the conveyor drive motor or the drive controller board. In my case it was the controller board. They had a replacement board out the next day. The new board worked like a champ.It would be nice if they had come wrench flats machined into the belt drive roller so you can easily turn the roller and motor coupling to a place where the allen screws on the motor coupling can be loosened. The current procedure is to use vise grips on the roller to move it to the proper position. I hate to take the chance to leave marks on a new machine, so I used a piece of copper sheet to protect the roller.Overall, I would give this product an Excellent rating.
