Default jet model 22-44 oscillating sander

I am thinking seriously about purchasing this sander, used but looks like new one year old. Is there anyone that owns or has used this particuler sander that could give first hand reviews. The only comparison I would have is a grizzly 24'' drum sander which we have used in my vocational wood working shop. The only complaint I have is the amount of dust it creates and it will use quite a bit of sand paper. Used price approx. on grizzly 800.00, compared to 1300.00 for jet model. Hope someone can help. Thanks.

Randy... I can't provide you a comparative rating but I've a few thoughts.

As you say, these things generate a mountain of sawdust. The one you have in your voc shop is surely connected to a dust collector and I wouldn't consider installing one in my shop without one. The 22/44 has a singe 4" connection, none too large for that big of a sander (the Griz has 2 4" ports), so I'd look for a good strong DC, something like a Jet DC1100 or bigger, if you don't already have one. This is not a candidate for a shop-vac conversion as it requires far more air volume than a shop vac can accomplish.

Someone with one should come along soon who can give you a review.

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

RB Battleford,

I have the Jet "Performax 22/44 drum sander like Big Jim points out a good DC system is required. Not sure about the ODS but the standard has a minimum of 400 cfm. I have a Delta 50-760, (1200cfm) with a 1 micron filter bag, its a work horse for sure with the jointer, TS, planer and molder, however with the DS there's still dust floating around the shop I suggest a paper mask when in use.

Never bite the hand that looks dirty!
