Enter the Jet & Powermatic Facebook Sweepstakes


JET® wants woodworkers to not only make dust, but control it with their Facebook driven Workshop Collection Sweepstakes. Two popular stationary tools, ideal for the shop are the JET Drum Sander (16-32 Plus) and the innovative Vortex Cone Canister Dust Collection System (DC-1100 series).  One lucky Facebook fan will receive both shop performers valued at $2,182; courtesy of JET Tools.

But hurry, this sweepstakes runs out this month, closing Feb. 29th.  The JET Vortex Cone Dust Collection Systems are revolutionary single-stage machines that allow woodworkers to work longer, more efficiently and breathe easier, by capturing and removing wood chips and separating them from airborne dust.  Cyclonic action taking place in the lower chamber of these units parcels wood chips from airborne dust and funnels the particulate into the collection bag.  This aerodynamically designed chamber and 14 in. cone combination is what drives the JET Vortex Cone System, enabling these machines to outperform others in the marketplace.  They eliminate performance fluctuations due to premature filter clogging.  The JET 16-32 Plus Drum Sander design provides ample capacity to handle small to large sanding jobs with ease.  The sanders Sandsmart™ control continuously monitors the load on the drum motor and automatically regulates the speed of the conveyor motor to maintain the highest feed rate without overload.  Its patented conveyor belt TRACKERS helpsreduce the need for manual belt adjustments.
