I've had a JPM13 Molder Planer (a floor model), since 03 and am very happy with it. I use the molder a couple 3 times a year and get excelent profiles from it. As a planer I can't count all the board feet that have passed through it, Oak, Maple, Mahogeny and Fir a sturdy well built tool.
Starting out as a throwaway tool company around 20 plus years ago Jet has made inroads into the quality shop tool business over the last 10 years.
