I have had this sander a couple years now. It has plenty of power, haven’t had any mechanical issues. The table is great, heavy and stable (even with an cast iron angle jig on it). The only issues to date has been the paint has peeled and flaked off on part of it, and the latch on the stand door broke. Minor issues only. I previously had a 12” disc that I was not satisfied with. (I do recommend getting Heavier weight discs than the grizzly ones (currently carried by them) If you do a lot of sanding. Fintech has industrial grade discs that are a bit pricey but last much longer). All in all I have been very satisfied.

Thanks for the Review. I will keep Fintech in mind.

Thanks for the review. What do you use your disk sander for most frequently?

I use it frequently with a jig to get precise miters and for curved profiles etc.

I dream about having room for a sander of this size. Good tip on the sanding disc have to look into that one. Below is all I have room to work with currently. LOL
