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.
The 22-44OSC Drum Sander has an exclusive oscillating feature, with the push of a button the 22-44OSC sander can be operated as a simple sander or as an oscillating sander. When operating as a linear sander, the sander drum rotates as the conveyor feeds the workpiece through. When in the oscillating mode, in addition to the linear sanding operation, the sanding drum head oscillates from left to right and lowers heat build-up on the sanding belt to reduce loading and burning. Additional features include a built-in cabinet door for easy access to storage, patented conveyor TRACKERS™ that reduce the need for manual belt adjustments and our SandSmart™ infinitely variable-feed control that produces the ultimate finish to your woodworking project. Oscillating feature reduces heat build-up on sanding belt to reduce loading and burning SandSmart™ infinitely variable-feed control produces the ultimate finish at a rate of up to 10 feet per minute. Conveyor belt TRACKERS™ dramatically reduce the need for manual belt adjustments. Sealed and permanently lubricated drum ball bearings for longer life. 1" of oscillating stroke. Precision-flattened reinforced steel conveyor bed and no-give power feed belt provide a constant smooth sanding action for better results. Adjustable drum height and downward pressure feature virtually eliminates snipe. Large cast-iron handwheel adjusts the height at 1/16" per turn for precise sanding thickness control. Abrasive take-up fasteners make changing abrasives quick and easy. The magnetic switch is front mounted for operator's convenience. One feed and one drive motor for superior sanding control. Continuous-duty, 1-3/4HP motor is designed for heavier use for longer periods of time.
Jet 22-44 Plus is a drum sander with automatic feeding of the workpiece with a conveyor belt. The main purpose is grinding and calibrating wood products. The rigid design with cast-iron base and bracket bracket provides high accuracy and repeatability, which is especially important in a production line. Since the shaft is fixed on one side, it is possible to grind the wide parts in two passes with a turn. When working with long billets, it is desirable to set the extension of the loading and unloading table (art.982202). All the necessary settings are provided: drum mounting heights (flywheel above) and feed rate (smooth with electronics). The alignment of the conveyor belt is made with special screws and is usually only required after replacement. The main consumable material is an abrasive belt 75 mm wide, it is wound on a drum, the ends are fixed in clamps. As options, an open stand for the machine or a closed pedestal with a transport facilitating device (with wheels and brake) is available. Another mandatory addition should be a highly efficient extraction system, which not only improves working conditions, but also significantly increases the life of the abrasive and the quality of grinding. A wide range of abrasive materials is presented in the catalog.
The Jet 54A is a unique niche in the professional equipment market: it is equally attractive for both private workshops and woodworkers with its high precision, ease of adjustment and durability. The main advantage on the background of analogues is the long, perfectly flat tables made of cast iron. Of the same material, the body, contoured fence and mechanism for its adjustment in angle and reach. The settings of the tables and the planer stop, once produced before commissioning, are retained for a long period, and otherwise this machine rarely requires attention. The only element of construction is a three-knucked planer shaft requiring regular maintenance. The blades installed in it can be re-sharpened many times (the minimum acceptable width is 15 mm at the initial 19 mm). To improve operational and operational characteristics, the machine can be converted by replacing the standard shaft with helical (option art JJ6HH-CA). Instead of 3 blades, he has 27 carbide cutting inserts, which are arranged in several rows in a spiral, which provides a consistent and angled entry into the workpiece. The segments themselves are very wear-resistant, besides, only some of the entire kit is usually damaged. Blunted inserts are turned over by the other side - four cutting edges. Also, the helical shaft is characterized by better performance in planing quality, especially when working with gnarled workpieces. FEATURES: Possibility to install a planer shaft helical Adjusting the planing depth Adjustable fence stop Adjustable blade guard Prefabricated tables of cast iron Planer stop made of cast iron
