Complete with built-in handles for easy portability, the JET 708596K JSG-96OS 6-Inch/9-Inch 3/4 HP Open Stand Belt/Disc Sander, 115-Volt 1-Phase is a combination belt/disc sander that comes complete with 3/4 HP motor for plenty of power to both sanders, a heavy-duty open-style stand, and two work tables. This versatile tool makes sanding tasks easier, more accurate, and less time-intensive for higher-quality results.
Powerful Mounted Motor for Robust, Stable Performance
The JSG-96OS is powered by a robust 3/4 HP, 110-volt, TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled) motor mounted in a heavy-duty base. The base also supports the nine-inch diameter disc and belt systems (measuring 6 by 48 inches) to create a solid and very stable unit.
Dual Thumbscrew Adjustment for Precision
The JSG-96OS boasts Jet’s exclusive dual thumbscrew belt tracking adjustment locks–an innovative feature that keeps the belt on track during use, which helps ensure precise results.
Sealed Ball Bearings and Steel Platen for Exceptional Durability
Built to last, the JSG-96OS offers exceptional durability for long-term reliability. Sealed, permanently lubricated ball bearings at all major friction points reduce maintenance and help provide an extended, trouble-free life, while the graphite-covered steel platen runs cooler, thereby preventing heat damage.
Single Dust Port Collects From Both Belt and Disc
To help keep your workspace clean, healthy, and dust-free, this tool features an effective dust collection system. This system has a single four-inch dust port on the back of the base that evacuates debris from both the disc and belt through specially designed shrouds that maximize its effectiveness.
Clever and Efficient Disc Section Design
The nine-inch diameter disc spins at 1,725 RPM (no load) and accepts adhesive-backed discs. Additionally, the heavy-duty disc plate is machined flat for super-smooth sanding and resists warping or deflection under all normal sanding conditions. To enhance dust collection and safety, a hinged door covers the lower portion of the sanding disc. Opening the door provides easy access to the complete disc for replacement of the abrasive.
Belt Section Offers Maximum Versatility
Measuring 6 x 48 inches, the sanding belt runs at 2,258 SFPM (surface feet per minute) and offers plenty of surface area to handle the big jobs. Its overall size also allows you to distribute wear over a larger area, which substantially increases the life of the abrasive.
For added convenience, the belt runs on high-quality rollers, mounted in a fully adjustable arm for maximum versatility. A rubber-coated drive drum helps to maintain belt speed.
Cast-Iron Sanding Disc Table for Stability and Flexibility
The cast-iron sanding disc table measures 10 inches wide and 12 inches in length, and has lots of surface area to help support large work pieces. The table also features a unique curved shape that makes it easy to use in a wide range of sanding operations. It’s also fully adjustable and tilts up to 45 degrees. For added convenience, a handy scale under the table shows the current amount of tilt and makes setting specific angles fast and easy.
Disc Table Mount for Increased Versatility
To make the belt even more versatile, a mount for the disc table can be used at the belt as well (the belt table must be removed). This is particularly useful when using the center point device or sanding an odd-shaped work piece.
Miter Gauge and Pivoting Fence for User-Friendly Operation
The JSG-96OS comes with a full-featured miter gauge, and a fence measuring 5.5 x 2 inches tall to securely hold stock or attach shop-made jigs. This fence also pivots 60 degrees to the right or left and is locked with the twist of the push handle. Finally, the miter gauge has a steel guide bar fitted with a T-slot follower that prevents lifting or rocking during sanding.
The JSG-96OS is backed by a five-year warranty.
About JET: A History of Sharing New, Feature-Rich Products
Opened in 1958 after the founder of the company, Leslie P. Sussman, took the first Boeing Jet Airplane trip from Seattle, Washington to Japan, JET began as a small dealer that sold air hoists and trolleys out of a single hardware store in Seattle. Over the years, JET has carried everything from snowmobiles, transmitter radios, and forklifts to nylon stockings, but by the early 1970s, metalworking had become the base of their business line. And by the 1980s, JET had expanded into the realm of woodworking. Today, you’ll find that JET offers a wide range of popular woodworking tools that are backed with best-in-class features and excellent service.
