    Hard to find a good 6x48 sander
    After reading a lot of reviews I decided on the JET. While there are likely better ones of the market, the price of the JET makes it the best value. I bought it without the stand as I could easily build a stand with storage that is a little shorter than the factory stand for my best working height. I did have to chase the threads on the lever/bolts and their holes to get them to fit properly. While I did not need this good of a machine (and price) there is nothing available of any quality between it and the very cheap 4X36 bench top units.

    Much better
    This is the second combination disc/belt sander I have purchased in the last two months. The first, a competing brand, turned out to be a great disappointment and was returned. It was a couple hundred dollars less than the Jet, but was the most obvious example of a U.S. corporation lining their pockets by using what has to be one of the worst Chinese machine shops. I am aware that the Jet is made in China as well (the vast majority of machines are), but at least Jet has a conscience regarding quality control of their products. For this type of machine, I don't think there is much better, nor does there need to be for a sander. The review lost a star because the smaller belt table is slightly cupped. Pony up the few more bucks, buy the Jet and be happy.

    After comparing other brands this seems to be the best value
    Kenneth F on Dec 2, 2019
    Highly rated machine from a reputable brand. A bit more than I'd planned to spend, but the 10% off nudged me over the finish line and as the saying goes "when you buy quality, you only cry once."

    what is a lift gate? It asks if I need one.
    mark w on Apr 28, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Lift gate refers to the truck that would deliver the sander to your home. The sander is heavy, so they are saying that if you don't have a loading dock, then the truck would need to have a lift gate (maybe at extra shipping expense to you) to lower the sander to the ground level. I picked mine up from the store, and one of the Rockler employees helped me get in into the back of my car. When I got it home, I was able to slide it out of the car hatchback onto my garage floor. If you have help around your house, two people could manage it I think. Driver may or may not want to help, and there may be union or company regulations about helping.
    does it come with miter gauges?
    jeff G on Nov 1, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: yes, it comes with a single miter gauge that fits the slots on both the disc and belt sander that are parallel to the sand paper. It is a somewhat lightweight aluminum gauge that is easy to set; as with this kind of miter gauge, I wouldn't trust the pre-set stops. The disc rotates counter-clockwise.
