I have been investigating the belt/disc
contenders and most of the comments that I have
seen pick the Jet over the comparable Delta, even
though the Jet is a few bucks more.
My local Woodcraft is having a 10% off sale on Jet
this saturday which means I could grab it for about
$270. As of now, I have decided to go for it as I can't
find anything comparable for the price.
Has anyone had any bad experiences with this machine
or would recommend something different for about $300?
I guess I would classify myself as an advanced
amateur woodworker of 10-12 years experience -
not a pro, but in my basement shop whenever I can find an
excuse to go there. I am running out of tool space!
On a separate topic, I almost bought a Ryobi spindle sander
at HD the other day - seemed pretty hefty for $99. I thought
it over and concluded that for that price it is probably a piece
of junk. I'll just continue using my DP as spindle sander for now.
I had a poor experience with a Ryobi drill/driver set - the drill
or driver would stick in the holder and had to use pliers to pry
it out - this has left a bad feeling for anthing Ryobi.
Help or comments appreciated.
