I just got my new Jet sander delivered a couple of days ago (Tuesday). It comes in three boxes, two are managable…the one containing the stand and the box containing the feed table/conveyor and feed motor. The third box contains the motor unit and drum…it weighs somewhere between 70,000 & 75,000 pounds (or so it felt like) when I had to unpack it and set it up by myself.
A friend said he would come help me set it up this weekend but I was way too impatient to watch the sander just sitting there in the box by it’s lonely self, and besides…I have a set of 4 panel doors and some panels I just built that have been waiting for the sander. Just then I saw my neighbor drive into his driveway…don’t have to wait until Saturday now!
The box with the conveyor table did not have the banding holding it together and the box was taped together. As I opened it I realized that the sandpaper that is supposed to come with was not in the box. The ad says it comes with 80 grit and 100 grit paper.
I tool the plastic off of the conveyor and first thing I noticed was a tear in the convetor belt about a inch and a half long. I called CPOjet where I ordered it and told them of these problems. Also asked them about the extensions for the conveyor. The salesperson I ordered it thru TOLD ME the PLUS model comes with the extensions. It does NOT. I told them I therefore wanted to buy the extensions and the customer service rep said he could not find the part # and price, so he would therefore call me back shortly when he knows the price. Well, two days later and I still have not heard back from him.
