 My Review! DEWALT DWE6401DS 5-Inch VS Disc Sander with Dust Shroud

My Review! DEWALT DWE6401DS 5-Inch VS Disc Sander with Dust Shroud

11-18-2017 06:21 PM by richardchaos | 0 comments »

last week I got my DEWALT DWE6401DS 5-Inch VS Disc Sander with Dust Shroud I ordered via Amazon as it was $25 cheaper that Lowes. It came as you see even with a wrench (Not pictured) to change out padded head. Keep in mind I have been using an very old DeWalt drill with a Plastic Sanding disk attachment for the last few years. I would regularly set up my desalt drill with sanding disc crush it in my vise and use it as a poor mans Stationary Disk Sander… If any of you have se...

 DELTA 31-484 OSCILLATING - TILTING SPINDLE SANDER -UNBOXING AND REVIEW

DELTA 31-484 OSCILLATING - TILTING SPINDLE SANDER -UNBOXING AND REVIEW

11-05-2017 06:38 PM by Ryan Nicholson | 11 comments »

I purchased a Delta 31-484 1HP Oscillating -Tilting Spindle Sander from a Delta dealer on EBay. I chose this model because the spindle tilts on a trunion instead of the table having to tilt. Also the gear box runs in an oil bath which is super quiet and should last many years. Delivery went smooth and the machine was undamaged so I signed for it and welcomed the 400 pound monster into my shop. Over all, the fit and finish of the machine is good. The cast iron table top was dead flat except ...

POOR SERVICE AFTER THE SALE

POOR SERVICE AFTER THE SALE

I did a lot of research before buying a sander , Some of the thing I wanted in the sander was , I wanted a Double drum sander , Pay a little extra now to save time later , Next I want it wide to sand 20 -24 wood panels, and at least be able to sand 6-8 thick or deeper , it case I wanted to sand a box or something, and a descent price ,so it came down to the Delta 26 inch wide 31-481 or the grizzly 24 inch model well I thought I done a lot of research , but I didn’t , I find any revi...

Great little belt sander for the money

Great little belt sander for the money

The Harbor Freight 1” X 30” bench top belt sander seems to be a pretty good machine. Well built and designed, it is easy to set up and use. Works equally well on sanding or grinding metal and wood items. The belts are reasonably priced and hold up quite well in use. The price of this machine is $54.99 and with the 20% coupon I paid $43 and change. I did rate this machine with 4 stars instead of 5. While it is easy to use, easy to change belts, and the dust collection works pretty...

EC 125/3 EQ

There was a point in time when I thought Festool was the most ridiculous thing out there. I mean who can justify a $385 sander that requires its own special sandpaper which also has a premium price. I loathed Festool and thought anyone who bought them were either Tom Silva or a Rhinestone Wood Worker. Then I needed a track saw. Looking at the three options in the US I eliminated the Dewault due to design and was going to go with the Makita until I read about all of the people who said they...

At Last I have a Drum Sander

At Last I have a Drum Sander

07-07-2017 05:27 PM by jaxx | 3 comments »

Its been a long time since I posted a review however, my woodworking is still my passion. In order to make quality projects the need for accuracy increases , start with flat and square timber and you are nearly there especially at glue up time. So after months of thought and research I decided on the 3156 drum sander from Lombarte Spain. 560mm wide drum 132mm diameter 2hp motor c/w wheeled stand and table extensions For sure its Far East made and near exact to the Jet 2244 however n...

Bosch 1250DEVS 6-1/2-Amp 6-Inch Random Orbit Sander

Bosch 1250DEVS 6-1/2-Amp 6-Inch Random Orbit Sander

I make a lot of cutting boards over 300 thus far. I have always kicked around getting a 6 inch sander. I have 3 different 5” sanders and tons of 5 inch sandpaper. I kept hearing that a 6 inch has roughly 44% more surface area than a 5. I was looking at the Bosch and the Festool. Blondie gave me the green light on the Festool even with the 580 price tag. For some reason I just couldn’t do it. Maybe I’m afraid of the addiction that will come from it LOL I got my Bosch o...

Recently got this sander from Grizzly, I realize that it is a sander that has various brand names attached to it so shop around and get your best deal. Prior to this I was using my drill press with different sized drums, there is no comparison between the two. Like anything you can spend as much or as little as you wish. This model more than meets my needs. I built a stand on wheels to move it around on and put a large drawer to hold all my sanding drums etc. etc. The sander came with 80 Grit...

Grizzly T27417 Oscillating Belt/Spindle Sander - Part 2

Grizzly T27417 Oscillating Belt/Spindle Sander - Part 2

03-21-2017 11:57 AM by EEngineer | 10 comments »

Since the two are so similar, it is inevitable that there will be comparisons between the Ridgid EB4424 and the Grizzly T27417. But the two products are quite different. Some of the most obvious differences were covered in the first part of this review. The table on the Grizzly unit is smaller and the whole package has a much smaller footprint (16 1/2” X 18 1/2” as opposed to the Ridgid’s 19 1/4” X 23 1/2”). Because of this, I think the Ridgid on-board storage is better organized – there ...
