Great buy, I bought a Jet 16-32 last year on ebay. It came with the leg set and castors, extension tables and 8 sets of paper.

The guy used it once, when I went to collect it there was no dust on it at all, the belts were all unused so I’m not sure he actually used it.

He had decided to take up metal working instead so surplus to his requirements. From the house he lived in I got the impression money was not a factor in the guys life and seemed happy that a “poor boy” had plans for it. I have seen older tattier examples go for much more so I guess I bid at the right time.

I mounted mine on a seven drawer tool chest, handy for keeping all the belts and spares in.

I got mine for £535, I’ve only used it a couple of times so far and what a joy to use. With all the belts I have it should be a while before I have to buy again.

Anyway, I’m sure you will have stress free hours of fun sanding those thin strips, well done on your find.
