Pretty Decent Overall
First I will start with what I like about his machine. Initial setup took about and hour or so and that included me ensuring the blades were level with the out feed table and the fence was level. With just that basic tuning I was able to get boards that were flat to under 1/32" with no problem. Which is plenty accurate for me seeing as my cuts are generally off more than that.
Now what I didn't like so much about it. First, the interaction manual that comes with it is terrible. You are better off not having one at all it is so bad. One of the nuts that came with the machine didn't have threads cut in it so the out feed table for the planer is only held on with 2 screws right now. Not a huge deal, but should have been caught. You can't turn the machine on without the dust collection housing being attached. Again, not a huge deal but it wasn't mentioned anywhere in the owners manual and took me about 5 min to figure out why the machine wouldn't start. Finally, the last issue I have is with the gauges that tell you how much material you are removing. For the jointer, it is just a little sticker that you can move around with your finger. No way to calibrate it and not something that seems very permanent. For the planer the gauge is a little more permanent; however, it is in tenths. Why they would make the gauge in tenths, especially when the manual recommends cuts no bigger than 1/16th at a time, I don't know.
Overall, I am impressed with what this machine can do considering all the bigger it is and how much it cost. It definitely isn't a professional grade machine, but for the hobby woodworker it will work just fine in my opinion.

Broken belts
Received unit, set up without difficulty. After first pass, realized alignment was not co-planer. After adjustment, machine began to hum and turn out slightly rounded joints before feeder belt for the planer broke. Coordinated with JET for a replacement belt which they sent quickly. Replaced belt and went back to work on son's cradle. Belt broke again after 8 minutes of working aromatic cedar. Shucks!

Let me start with its a good machine. But Jet never should have made it. Its a royal pain to change from jointing function to planing. It is also difficult if you are working with anything of substantial length. Anything over 3-4 feel long and you are rolling the dice on the quality of cut.

Is the table top made of cast iron?
Frank Z on Mar 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No the top is aluminum I think, a magnet doesn't stick at all. The shelf below for the planer does attract a magnet but not the top for the jointer.
120 or 220 power?
