Wood Magazine names JET's 12 Inch Disc Sander Top Tool

Wood Mag Top Tool LogoIn the November 2013 issue of Wood Magazine, editors Bob Hunter and Bob Saunders reviewed several 12" Disc Sanders, searching for the newest tool to join the elite Top Tool awardees. Five brands were graded on a number of features including power, dust collection, ease of adjusting table, quality of mitering gauge, ease of changing discs, platen material, type of disc break, material, dimensions, tilt range, cord length, warranty, price, and others. 

After the results were tallied, it was JET that came out on top, earning Wood Magazine's Top Tool Award. Here's what Wood Magazine had to say about the JET 12" Disc Sander

"The Top Spinners
As you might expect, the higher-priced JET JDS-12OS outperformed the other machines in many aspects: It earns our Top Tool Award. This stand-mounted machine has power to spare, built-in dust collection, a user-friendly cast-iron table with X-Y miter slots, a circle-sanding jig, and the easiest abrasive changes of our test group. It also comes with a five-year warranty. But if the $560 price tag proves too much for your wallet, you can buy the sander without the stand and filter (model JDS-12B) for $500.
