Jet JWDS 1632 Drum Sander (NEW!)
The newly designed Jet 1632 drum sander has several innovative features to help make finishing sanding an accurate and effortless task.
The major focus has centred around the conveyor table, which now features a simple dial to adjust the parallelism with the sanding drum, including a lock bolt to keep your settings secure.The motor drive system now pulls the work through the machine rather than pushing, creating a smoother flow, reducing the chances of marking. Jet's patented Sandsmart™ system has been fitted, which monitors the sanding load and automatically controls the feed speed to prevent aggressive sanding burning the work.
The sanding drum has improved access to the abrasive securing clips, while the hood has been redesigned to improve dust extraction. The whole frame has been redesigned to give a smoother look, but also to increase the rigidity and accuracy. The drum depth adjusting handle has a scale to allow relative depth adjustment to be set for each project. Both drum motor and conveyor motor controls are grouped conveniently together for easy control.
The sander is supplied with a floor stand with rubber feet, which has a wide footprint for stability and is pre-drilled for optional castors. A worthwhile accessory is the extension table set (103813), which almost doubles the working surface area for extra support. A single 100mm dust extraction outlet is provided, efficient dust extraction is vital with these machines, please make sure your system is adequate. This machine will suit many small furniture or musical instrument makers looking for a precise finishing sander.
