La Vergne, TN – The new JET® Three Wheel Belt Bench Grinders are ideal additions to fabrication and machine shops for grinding castings or deburring and finishing ferrous and non-ferrous metal work pieces. To accommodate a wide range of grinding needs on either flat or angular surfaces, these powerful performers come in three sizes, including 1” x 42”, 2” x 48” and 2”x 60” belt diameters.
The belt grinders are built for the long haul with heavy duty, casted bodies and die casted belt levers. A vented full motor shroud keeps dust and chips away from the motor shaft. The motor also is protected by a thermal reset to prevent overheating.
Three-wheel design provides optimal grinding surfaces. Abrasive belts are equipped with urethane drive and idle wheels for dependable and long-lasting service. An intuitive, lever-based belt tensioning process makes belt changes quick and easy


La Vergne, TN – The new JET® Dual Station Abrasive Pipe Notcher does extra duty to maximize shop productivity and output. Its innovative two-station design provides quick and easy access to notching, grinding and deburring at three different work stations.

The Dual Station Abrasive Pipe Notcher is made to last with heavy gauge steel construction throughout. This multi-tasking machine is engineered to notch pipe from ½ to 2 ½ in. diameter at the front station. It is capable of notching angles from 90 to 30o by use of a multi-positional hand lever vise.

Seven interchangeable rollers come standard and require no tools to install. Mandrel sizes include ½. ¾, 1, 1 ¼, 1½, 2 and 2 ½ in. Rollers are conveniently stored in an onboard compartment at the machine’s base.


La Vergne, TN – Manufacturing an industrial buffer to meet shop use demands was just what JET® had in mind when they developed their new 8 in. Industrial Buffer. This 44 lb. benchtop dynamo’s entire body is constructed of cast iron with a fully-enclosed industrial housing with factory-sealed, pre-lubricated ball-bearings for reliable, long life use. Rubber mounts at the buffer’s base help eliminate movement, plus dampen vibration.

Safety first. This new JET buffer was designed with operator safety in mind. The buffer’s motor includes brake resistors to shut down the wheels’ rotation so they come to a complete stop in less than 20 seconds.

Another big advantage of this industrial buffer is its variable-speed motor that operates from 900 to 3600 RPM. Plus, there’s no on/off rocker switch. The power interface features an electronic touch pad panel with a power on/off control, flanked by up and down arrows to adjust and monitor the buffer’s speed.
