I know the picture is of a grizzly item but they are both the same thing. All of the parts are interchangeable. So what did I like best about this item…selling it for a loss. At least the guy who bought helped drag the piece of stuff out of the basement. I told him it was finicky about power and he would need a cooling fan for the motor. I think the longest it ran before the motor tripped on an overheat was about 15 minutes and I was hardly sanding the wood.This has to be the most disappointing item I have ever purchased. The only reason I am giving it 2 stars is because it did start and the drum was round. Tracking was relatively easy to accomplish. Loosen two lock nuts and turn the bolts to shift the platen and it came in pretty quick. Belt changes were not that difficult. It does need to be lubricated every hour it runs, not that I got an hour of run time out of it. If someone where to tell me they were going to be buying it I would try very hard to talk them out of it.
P.S. THe sander I owned was a different color, does that mean I shouldn’t post this picture either??
