Jet Parallel Clamp

Jet Parallel Clamp

10-12-2009 12:28 AM by alaskan79 | 9 comments »

I got a pair of 12” clamps last winter and they are really nice. I was using pipe clamps and was having trouble with my glue ups not staying flush. I was getting a lot of cup and would have to clamp some 2 X 2 on each end to stop it from happening. I got these clamps and now I don’t have that problem. About a month ago I got a pair of 31” because the 12” where a little short for some of my glue ups. I really like them also. Really easy to move the movable jaw on the ba...

Craiglist Drum Sander find

Craiglist Drum Sander find

12-04-2011 08:18 AM by ichbinpete | 18 comments »

I have been on the lookout for a deal on a drum sander for quite some time. Of course a good deal to me has to be an amazing deal to the wife. Using Craiglist RSS feeds is about the best way to stay up on things and find a good deal, btw. Anyways, I found a listing for a Jet 16-32 drum sander listed for an amazing $300. I immediately called the number and asked what was wrong with it. When the seller said nothing and that it was only about 6 months old with about 1 hour of usage I asked ...

Disappointment with JET DC-650A 1 Horsepower Dust Collector

Disappointment with JET DC-650A 1 Horsepower Dust Collector

01-18-2010 12:47 AM by Don Newton | 20 comments »

Fellow Jocks, After 25 years of injesting sawdust, a very foolish thing to do, a few months ago I took the plunge and purchased a Jet Dust Collector and AFS-400 Air Filtration System. The Air Filtration System works as it should, but in my opinion the Dust Collector has some design flaws that make me sorry I purchased it. The dust collector is small but should be adequate for my needs. My workshop is in my basement so space is critical and portability is desirable. The Jet DC-650A seeme...

Solid Re-Saw machine

Solid Re-Saw machine

01-19-2010 12:20 AM by richgreer | 6 comments »

I was looking at the bandsaw reviews on this website and I noticed that there was no review of my bandsaw. So I decided to address this oversight by providing this review. I need to put my review into perspective. Previously, I used the band saw attachment for my shopsmith. That is an 11 inch bandsaw that is much different than this bandsaw. I have never had experience with other bandsaws that are comparable to this. Therefore, I cannot compare this bandsaw to other comparable ba...

How could they even sell this?

How could they even sell this?

01-19-2010 10:17 PM by funchuck | 18 comments »

I was very excited to order this. A 10” Jointer/Planer for only $420? That’s a great deal! And it’s a JET! Well, when it arrived, it looked like the box had been through hell. The top and bottom flaps were opened, the stand was missing, and all the nuts, bolts and washers were scattered all over the place. I was ok with the missing stand, since I had an extra stand from an old Delta table saw I can use. I just had to make sure none of the other parts were missing....

Another Jet 10" jointer/planer combo review

Another Jet 10" jointer/planer combo review

02-08-2012 12:35 AM by Eric | 7 comments »

Having a large hunk of white oak cut up roughly (chainsaw!) and dried, and beaten up by taking a good hour on one piece jointing with hand planes, I finally took the plunge with the Jet 10” combo. I have a small non-garage shop, so both space and charge card were important! Since others have reviewed the machine here and on other sites, I just want to add my thoughts if you are considering the purchase.First, as others have said, set up is a snap, tables well-enough co-planer out of t...

Final Bandsaw

Final Bandsaw

01-21-2010 05:38 AM by PhineasWhipsnake | 11 comments »

I’m retiring in 3 months, so I decided to upgrade to this saw from a Delta 10” I bought 10 years ago. I originally wanted the 17” Grizzly, but decided to buy from a local brick & mortar store (Sacrramento Machinery)for political reasons. This saw has pretty much all the features I wanted: 12” resaw capacity, roller guides, quick-disconnect detensioning, and, most importantly, local support in case of a problem. Like everyone else, I replaced the blade with a...

Now I really do have 10 Inches...

Now I really do have 10 Inches...

Last August I purchased a Jet 10” Combination Jointer/Planer, and last weekend I finally got to give it a real workout. I had 3 pieces of 6/4 Cherry all 10’ long ranging in width from about 5” up to nearly 9”. I needed to mill them all down to the exact same thickness so I could glue them up and make one massive cherry counter top 9’ 3” long and 17” deep. Me and my Jet got to spend 5 hours of quality time with each other. The good: 1 – T...

Using New Shaper

Using New Shaper

03-04-2010 08:48 AM by ND2ELK | 15 comments »

I finally got to try out my new shaper today. It has a 1 1/2hp motor and comes with a 1/2” spindle, 3/4” spindle, 1/4” collet and 1/2” collet for router bits. It has two different speeds and a forward and reverse. I really like the idea that I can use shaper cutters and router bits on the same machine. I have not bought any shaper cutters yet because I feel I should buy shaper cutters for each of the jobs as I do them. That holds true for router bits as well. As I do m...
