,JET, known for designing and engineering useful tools and equipment, also redesign equipment adding innovative features and qualities. Such is the case with the new redesigned JET 16-32 drum sander. This JET drum sander provides the woodworker with everything needed for an effortless finish, while increasing efficiency.
JET 16-32 Drum Sander Features
Features such as Sandsmart keep woodworkers operating at peak efficiency. Sandsmart is a feature that constantly monitors the load on the drum and drum motor, automatically adjusting the speed of the conveyor accordingly. Users remain efficient by maintaining the best feed rate, while not overloading the motor.
The tool-less parallelism system (yes, that’s a word) is innovative while keeping things simple. As a result of turning the dial, the conveyor bed is adjusted, without tools and outside of harm’s way. The parallelism dial also features a stop that returns the bed to a flat position. In addition to the parallelism, the take-up clips are also toolless, so changing the abrasives are completed fast and easy.
Different materials and processes require different speeds and techniques. The speed rate for the feeder is completely variable, so you can set the optimal rate, depending on your project. The aluminum drum has been precision-machined and dynamically balanced, furthermore, aluminum is not only light but also dissipates heat very well. This keeps the heat off your work surface, where damage may normally occur. As the JET 16-32 drum sander efficiently does its job, as a result sawdust and chips are sure to fly. These airborne particles become minimized by the mirrored design of the dust hood. An integrated channel that mirrors the shape of the drum directs the flying particulate to the 4-inch collection port.
