Great 115 Volt Saw

Great 115 Volt Saw

09-01-2009 04:11 AM by Ben | 11 comments »

I finally received my supersaw after two months on backorder. It was worth the wait. Jet ran a Fathers day deal in June and I got it cheap. Assembly I spent the better part of a Saturday putting the whole machine together. Everything was packaged well and there was no damage. I would rate the manual a 7 out of 10. I did spend 20 minutes looking for one package of bolts that they had packed inside one of the fence rails with the cap on it. I finally read the manual very closely to ...

What a Great Tool

What a Great Tool

The 22-44 Oscillating Sander was a Luxury on my wish list. But I have no regrets at all. It does everything it claims it will do and then some.It comes in three boxes, the base, sander head, feed table. Make sure you have some muscle on hand to assemble this monster. To save on a hernia repair it wouldn’t hurt to have a chain fall, come along to lift the sander head. Besides being very heavy due to the solid cast iron construction, it is a off balanced lift. 90% of the weight is at on e...

Jet 12" Jointer - Planer

Jet 12" Jointer - Planer

01-27-2010 04:23 AM by ND2ELK | 19 comments »

I am pleasantly surprised at the construction and thoughtful design of this machine. It came in an extremely will built crate and it was perfectly adjusted right out of the crate. The 3HP, 220V motor showed no sign of being under powered when planing and jointing the 100 bd ft of quarter-shawn white oak I had to run. I really like the high fence for jointing and I had no problem putting a straight edge on 8’ and 9’ boards. I felt the 55” tables were not too short to do this ...

This sander gets the job done!

This sander gets the job done!

Apprehensive at first spending so much on a sander, my fears we relieved after the first board was run through. The packaging was excellent, isn’t styrofoam wonderful? The base was easy to assemble with good instructions (pictures) provided. Be advised, get some help to lift the sanding machine on the stand!!!! It is heavy !!!! The in-feed table was easy to install, along with the optional extensions. Tracking was perfect after loosening the shipping tension right out of the box. So far...

Very capable table saw

Very capable table saw

03-04-2010 11:16 PM by Twigger | 8 comments »

My two expert woodworking friends scoffed at any thoughts that I’d buy less than a table saw that I’d be happy with for a long long time. When I suggested this saw they both endorsed the idea. It’s been great. I will add that I’ve invested in the Forrest Woodworker II blade. The cuts are really good, and from a beginner. And I’ve done some pretty complicated work creating a maple corner cabinet with various mitered joints, dado groves and other finer feature...

Real affordable quality

Real affordable quality

01-28-2008 11:37 AM by Rob McCune | 5 comments »

This machine has me hooked on Jet tools. I had really thought high quality cost a lot more. Granted it doesn’t have some of the features of it’s PowerMatic cousin (they are made by the same company). Power: More than enough. I haven’t been able to slow it down facing 6” wide boards. Reliability: Rock solid, the only issue I have had is with dust collection. As long as you have a dust collector hooked up there is no issue, but if you try to use just the chip ...

Jet model CTAS 10-1 right tilt, 3 HP 220V

I bought this saw 25 years ago. I thought a review of this saw would be useful to people looking for good used machines on E-Bay and CL. It has been across the country in my many moves. I believe the price at the time was around $1100. I added a Biesemeyer 54” fence to it as soon as I got it. It has seen much use over it’s 25+ years. It still runs perfectly; bearings are tight; top is flat; everything remains aligned. I couldn’t ask any more from a saw. It would compare favo...

Solid bandsaw.

Solid bandsaw.

I have owned this saw for about a year. I bought it at Rockler for $800 in a deal that included the rip fence and a very good DVD. It sits on locking casters and rolls quite nicely. AssemblyThe saw comes in one piece. The only thing to assemble is the table and fence. I had to drill out one of the caster holes that was not formed properly, but that was minor. I lifted the saw by myself which I don’t really recommend (310 pounds). The story4” dust port does the job. Wired ...

New verses old

New verses old

01-08-2014 05:37 PM by Jimthecarver | 14 comments »

Having the Jet 1014 mini lathe and really loving it, and having no problems with it what so ever. I decided on the 1221VS model. Unboxing it was fun, my past lathes have been hand me downs and/or very used and in need of rebuilding. Upon opening I removed the lose goodies that came with it and lifted off the foam to reveal the site of a turners dream…mine anyway.After getting it unboxed I noticed NO live center….bummer! Just a call to get that taken care of easily. Noticing a...

Very, Very nice beginner lathe

Very, Very nice beginner lathe

12-24-2008 06:00 AM by teenagewoodworker | 18 comments »

i have had my Jet mini lathe for about 5 months now and it is a solid performer. there is a lot to consider when looking at lather so this will be a pretty long review but worth it. Power Power is a big thing when looking into a lathe. this lathe is 1/2 hp which is underpowered. this lathe does do quite well though. i find that i can stall it up up usually i am good. the only times that i have been able to stall it up is when roughing out very large out of true logs. other than that it ...
