JET began as a small dealer of manual chain hoists and trolleys; sold from a single hardware store in Tacoma, Washington. Over the years, JET has carried everything from electric chain hoists to air hoists. Beginning in the 70's JET introduced a full line of industrial air tools and material handling products which included paving breakers, backfill tampers and forklifts.
By the early '80s, as JET continued to grow, metalworking products became their core business line. 5 years later, JET launched its woodworking product category rounding out their product categories.
In the '90s, JET grew from being just an importer of high-quality machines and tools from the Far East to designing and manufacturing its own products in the Far East to its own specifications.
Jet JBM-5 is a desktop grooving and grooving machine for amateur woodwork, but for reliability and accuracy, it is suitable for professionals. Despite the narrow specialization, the machines of this type are in demand by masters, since the depth and straightness of the depressions that can be made on them are difficult to achieve when working with a hand mill or chisel. Being compact and mobile, the JBM-5 is equipped with all the mechanisms and systems that make the work easier. There is a gas stand to compensate for the weight of the drilling part, a rack feed mechanism with a long lever, a longitudinal stop and a vertical workpiece clamping. Simplicity and accuracy of drill bit installation is ensured by a set of adapter bushings - just select the required one and clamp the outer part with a screw, having previously oriented the plane to the stop of the workpiece. To fix the drill, a three-jaw chuck with an elongated key is provided.
The Cyclone Dust Collector Collection from JET delivers the efficiency you’ve been waiting for. With a direct mount filter, and a large collection bin these dust collectors take your shop’s capabilities to a new level. Upgrade to a JET Cyclone Dust Collector and experience The Power of Efficiency. The cyclone's two stage separation provides more working CFM than comparable horsepower single-stage units. Heavy debris is pulled down to the collection drum before debris stream reaches the filter, providing constant suction. The direct mounted filter eliminates inefficiencies from ridged flex hosing and bends. Fine dust particles are filtered through pleated material that captures even the smallest particles down to 1 micron and below. Heavy debris is captured in 20-gallon drum with quick-release levers and independent casters for quick emptying. A double paddle manual cleaning system quickly cleans the pleated filter. Swivel casters make it easy to move the unit around the shop.
The filtration unit AFS-500 is designed to purify air inside the production premises from dust and other suspended solids, and in combination with an optional charcoal filter allows the removal of some chemical contaminants. The use of such equipment is justified when conventional ventilation is impossible due to winter cold, lack of suitable ventilation capacity or environmental restrictions, because dust and odors can interfere with neighbors. The characteristics of the AFS-500 are optimal for work in workshops and small workshops with an area of about 30-50 sq. M with an internal volume of up to 120 m3. The parameters of the built-in filters are suitable for removing a wide variety of industrial pollution, starting from fine dispersions like welding aerosols and suspensions of LMC, to relatively large ones, for example sawdust or grinding dust. There are two stages of purification: inside the "thin" 1-micron filter, outside the "rough" electrostatic at 5 microns or coal, trapping not only large particles, but molecules of chemical pollutants. Depending on the need, one of three modes of intensity of operation is available with the buttons on the control panel.

Jet JWL-1440VS- A massive and stable lathe with a large machining zone, variator drive spindle and a powerful asynchronous motor, designed for continuous operation without interruptions to cooling. The model is the development of a well-proven machine JWL-1442, popular both with professionals and with fans of woodworking. The novelty feature is smooth, infinitely variable speed, spindle with M33x3.5 thread and desktop version (massive cast-iron feet for floor installation are sold as a optional extra). As an option, an extension of the frame is also supplied, and it can be mounted on two levels, which makes it possible to work with workpieces of increased diameter (it is implied that they are secured without the use of a tailstock). The construction of the pod is also adapted for such work. The front headstock can be moved along the bed and rotated by an angle of a multiple of 30 °. For fixing the pod and the positions of the front and rear headstock, convenient eccentric clamps meet. The machine is equipped with a dividing device for marking the workpiece and blocking the spindle when replacing the cartridge / faceplate. The spindle drive is carried out via a V-belt variator with a smooth (stepless) speed change. It is extremely important that the speed of rotation is changed right during operation, without turning off the machine. FEATURES: Massive cast iron frame and supporting legs (option) Swivel and movable headstock Hard fixation of the angles of rotation of the headstock through 30º V-belt drive variator Dividing device Eccentric fixation of the pod, front and tailstock

The Jet-1632 drum sander, it's traditional layout with a cantilever arrangement of the working unit allows you to work with parts whose width is twice the length of the drum or brush. The height above the belt of the conveyor is regulated by the rotation of the handle, while it is possible to control both the absolute value on the millimeter scale on the housing and the relative movement along the limb on the handle. Adjustment of the parallelism of the shaft and the base is made without an auxiliary tool: two latches and a screw stop are equipped with barrel handles. The conveyor belt drive is equipped with a smooth speed control with the SandSmart electronic system, which adjusts the set value depending on the load on the motor. If it reaches a critical value (for example, the thickness of the workpiece is increased), the conveyor speed will automatically decrease, and later, as soon as the conditions permit, it will automatically return to the previous level.
Jet JWBS-14DXPRO - a new saw for the domestic market, well-established and in great demand in the USA. Against the background of European counterparts, it looks unusual, both in terms of design and characteristics. The most important difference is a very large cutting height, which is more in line with machines with 18- and 20-inch pulleys. Atypical and very massive construction: the frame is made not of steel, but of cast iron elements, because of this, the desktop version of the 14DXPRO is much heavier than most outdoor analogues. On the other hand, high rigidity and strength of the base are very important for accurate and comfortable work. On the back of the machine there is a belt tension adjustment unit equipped with an indicator (its readings are compared with the width of the installed tape) and a lever for rapid tensioning / loosening. The height of the installation of the upper 3-point roller guides is changed by two handles: rotating one, making a fixation, the second - moving the knot. The belt transmission is two-speed, which allows you to confidently work with a wide range of materials. By designation, the JWBS-14DXPRO is ideal for the role of a universal saw, capable of performing both cuts of great height, and a variety of typical work in the carpenter's workshop. Thanks to the complete set, which includes only the most necessary, the price of the machine is very attractive (especially if we take into account the unique characteristics). Note: Rip fence, Mitre gauge and Stand are optional extras FEATURES: Two speeds of saw blade movement Roller guides of the saw blade The lever of rapid tension and weakening of the saw blade Adjusting the tilt of the saw table Working table made of cast iron
JJ-6L-M - planer with long cast iron tables, designed for amateur use. Due to the fact that it is executed on the same layout scheme as the professional Jet models, it is precise and convenient in operation. Structurally, it consists of two parts. In the bottom, playing the role of the pedestal-stand, is a single-phase asynchronous ("induction") motor with a power of a little more than a kilowatt and a shroud collecting hood with a 100-mm nozzle for connection to the exhaust system. The upper part consists of a cast-iron base where the planing shaft is located, and cast-iron work tables with the corresponding equipment consisting of a protective casing and the workpiece rest. Both tables are regulated in height by screw mechanisms, driven by handwheels. By moving the feeding (front) table, adjust the depth of planing, for which there is a corresponding marking; The receiver (rear) is moved only during the adjustment operations while the machine is serviced. The casting stop is cast-iron, with a mechanism for adjusting the tilt (it is possible in both directions). The selected position is locked by a threaded clip. The knife shaft is equipped with three knives, which allow re-sharpening. Their size is the same as that of the professional jet fuels with a similar planing width.
