Jet JBOS-5 Benchtop Oscillating Spindle Sander

This is a sweet oscillating spindle sander.  It was worth the extra bucks for this machine.  Sometimes I wish I has the edge belt sander option as the classic Rigid oscillating spindle sander has.

The JBOS-5 Benchtop Spindle Sander has a 1/2HP motor, and a large 14-1/2” tilting table. A heavy-duty worm gear system provides one-inch oscillating action, which prolongs sleeve life and helps prevent burnishing of the workpiece. Four inserts are provided, and 5 spindles with sanding sleeves.

Features

  • 1" oscillating action reduces friction heat to protect wood and prolong sleeve life
  • Main spindle support runs on precision ball bearings and is oscillated by a heavy-duty worm and gear mechanism for consistent performance
  • Oscillation gears run in a sealed lubricated box to prolong their life and durability
  • Table tilts to 45° to accommodate bevel sanding projects
  • Removable on/off safety switch prevents accidental start-up
  • Powerful 1/2HP induction motor easily handles the toughest sanding projects
  • Built-in 2" dust port keeps dust and debris out of the air
  • Spindles have threaded ends for quick, easy changes
  • Four table inserts are provided (3/4" and 1" Oblong, 3/4" and 1" Round), to prevent dust and debris from falling into the motor, and help protect operator.
  • Built-in storage racks keep spindles and table inserts handy
  • Includes four non-skid rubber feet keep machine stable during use
  • Includes 1/4", 1/2", 5/8", 1-1/2", 2" spindle assemblies with 100 grit paper
