I spend more time in front of my sander than in front of any other tool I have . I have a disc/belt sander with the disc not installed. ( hate those things). I have a Harbor Freight 6” x48” belt sander. I paid $169 for it and it works great! I thought belt changing and tracking might be an issue on such a cheap sander but it works just fine. Be sure to get some of that belt sander clean up product. It will make the belts last 100 times longer than not having it. It is a crape material that works just like an erasor to remove sawdust buildup.
