I’m sure that you are right about that, Charlie – especially on the finer grits. But if the sander eliminates half the sanding or only a third it’s done it’s job and paid for it’s self over time. Also, we would be talking about only the difference between the two machines and not the whole price if I have decided to get one or the other. Also, there are operations that can be done such as the shaping of small parts.

Actually, I haven’t used a belt/disc sander for many years. Back when we used to make furniture we had mostly edge sanders and wide belt sanders.

The only boxes that I have experience making are boxes for the shop and utility boxes, some of them dovetailed with a router and a template and some by hand. Box making such as you see in the most popular box making books and also here on Lumberjocks are really a new experience to me because I’m just getting started and have lots to learn. I appreciate your comments, Charlie, and have seen some of your work so I suspect that you’ll be one of the ones who will help me learn about box making and I do appreciate it. You have some beautiful boxes in your projects pages along with a lot of other wonderful things.
