Overall Rating for JET 708404 Model JBOS-5 Benchtop Oscillating Spindle Sander
By Joe from Mass on March 18, 2015
Pros:plenty of power, very nice table.
Cons:Does not have variable speed nor does it come with a fence.
I would recommend this item to a friend.

The unit was slightly damaged during shipping, however nothing that 10 mns. worth of time to straighten the front right corner and some touch up paint didn't solve. Not worth the time or effort to send back. Although I'm certain that Tools-plus would have immediately resolved any issue.
Pros:Strong solid machine. Great table size,
Cons:Dust evacuation could be better ! Why would JET use a 2 O.D. fitting ? Had to hunt and retrofit a Rockler 2 1/4' OD to 4 OD and ream the 2 1/4 ID to fit..... after calling JET technical. POOR DESIGN
Wish the inserts were height adjustable. Once again had to retrofit in order to make flush with table top. Simple set screws would have done the trick....Come on JET !
