Tools #2: Craftsman 6x48 / 9 inch belt sander, model 103.0803

01-26-2014 04:19 PM by PASs | 8 comments »

I got this off a craigslist add a few years ago. It’s old school with oil bath bearings. And tracking adjusters on both sides of the idler roller. The disk sander table has a really terrible angle adjuster, a screw wedge, but it also has two support arms that help lock the table in position. It has worked well for me although the belt has a tendency to drift.The problem was pretty bad until the rubber sleeve on the idler roller disintegrated due to dry rot.I decided to repla...

Tool Gloatings

I’m still pretty new out here, but I really enjoy the concept of the ‘tool gloat’, so I’ve decided to partake. This is (most of) my shop… It’s perpetually in a complete disaster state, but I suppose that’s a good thing… means that things are getting done.

My Tools #3: More of my new JET JSG-96CS 6"x48" belt/9" disk sander

First, some good news. The dust blowing all over last time was not indicative of poor dust collection in this machine. After closing up shop for the day, it bugged me all night, and I figured there must have been something I missed. There was. Under the belt on the back of the machine is a blast gate. D’oh. Opening that, the dust collection becomes quite good. No more dust spewing in all directions, but this thing sands very aggressively, so hard sanding does result in a little bit kick...

My Tools #2: My Christmas present from mom finally arrived!

02-17-2010 05:22 AM by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

It’s the JET – JSG-96CS: 6’’ x 48’’ Belt / 9’’ Disc Sander w/ Closed Stand, 3/4HP 1Ph, 115V. It arrived by pallet in two boxes: Right away the 3/4HP motor and belt seemed bigger than I’d imagined this past year or two (this has been on my wishlist for awhile now). I had even scaled up my mental image, but it was still bigger than I thought: The closed stand is a very thick sheet metal, and heavier than I expected. It was a...
