Rated 5 out of 5 by from jet is excellent at what they do I have a shop full of jet equipment so when i tell you it is good.......believe it!! This is a fairly heavy item that stays put and you don't feel like it is going to turn over if you put any pressure on it. Smooth quiet operation. Excellent equipment and the best price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Jet benchtop oscillating sander The price is high. I am having the worse time ever to keep the sanding sleeves concentric on the spindle ( I am using the 2" one ). I had a chance to borrow a different model and I was pleased with the smooth action of the tool ( no vibrations on the piece being sanded ). The sanding sleeves are to thin. I think the gap between the shaft and the rubber sleeve is the cause of the vibrations ( you need to compress the rubber sleeve to much and it takes an irregular shape ). The inserts are too thin and need tape or something else to bring them flush with the table. I need to find out the function of a set screw on the base of the spindle assembly because it was loose and when I tighten it, looks like it put too much pressure on some bearing ( I need to look at the assembly drawings when I have time ). The vacuum port, beacuse of the totally open base, doesn't do much ( on a tool like this where the sanding is done on the top of the base, it is hard to remove the dust ). At the moment, I wish I had bought a Delta !
