Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bobbo very nice sander.
works great but I wish I had gotten a bigger one, the line it leaves when sanding a piece over 10 inches is hard to remove. no fault of the sander, it does it's job as expected.

The drum sander was easy to set up and performs well. Be sure to have someone help you in lifting it out of its shipping box, as it weighs about 100 pounds. Take your time in aligning the feed belt...you'll probably have to do this a few times as it will move some. Do check that the sanding drum is parallel to the feed belt and make any adjustments necessary.

I took this little beauty out of the box and installed the handle for the drum height adjustment. Then I put it on an unused stand that was leftover from my trusty Ridgid 12" Miter Saw (I bought the big portable Ridgid stand for it), plugged it and and voila - she was ready to roll. I checked the adjustments from the factory and they were all right on spec. I've turned a couple dozen pieces for making segmented wooden pens and am ecstatic at the simplicity, power, and utility of this dream machine. I don't know how I survived before this. Everything I make will be perfect in terms of fit and finish from now on. Kudos Jet and Home Depot for making my life easier in my workshop!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kwn31 Jet drum sander
First of all, Home Depot had the best price around for this product. I checked in a number of online woodworking sites and couldn't find any to beat the price.
I received the product in excellent condition, with minimal setup.
Plugged the machine in, hooked up my dust collection system to it and immediately started sanding stock. No adjustments were necessary. Sanding glue ups are a breeze with this machine.
No more trying to get boards flat with a hand held belt sander.
Great product at a great price.
Thanks Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by willysman39 Jet 10-20 plus drum sander
I searched for the best price for the Jet 10-20 plus drum sander and found Home Depot to have the absolute best deal around. Shipping was free, but did take about a week longer than normal. The box arrived in perfect condition and the unit required no set up adjustments at all. Just plugged it in, connected the dust collection system and was "in business" sanding stock. Seldom does a machine actually deliver everything I hope for when I purchase it, but this one does. I can get stock flat within +/- .005 inches.
