Default JET 708404 Oscillating Spindle Sander

JET 708404 Oscillating Spindle Sander

Rated by: DeJure

Rating: 8

I give this a rating of eight only because a larger unit would offer more versatility.

The unit is a heavy, well built piece of equipment and, certainly, would cause me to consider other Jet equipment purchases. In the three years I've used this machine, it shows no signs of wear or tear.

The table tilts easily for special sanding operations, a feature not offered on other brand name units.

Like many woodworking tools, this unit opens doors to new woodworking opportunities, if only for time saved. It has saved hours of, otherwise, tedious sanding of curved items.

When connected to my small dust extractor, or even a vacuum, this unit does a fair job of collecting most the dust produced in sanding operations.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Scraps are a myth.

Good write up and evaluation. I take it that rating is 8 out of 10?

You presume correctly in that it should have indicated eight out of a possible ten. Sorry about not making that more clear.

Thanks for the review Kelly. Curious on how much you paid for the OSS?

Default Jet ocillating sander for around $400

Just for reference, I paid about four hundred, including tax, through Western Tool.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.
