Abrasive sanding ball

Abrasive sanding ball

01-01-2016 09:53 PM by htl | 1 comment »

A couple a months ago I needed a flap sander and went to Harbor Freight to pick one up, they had tons of sanding thingys but flap sanders no.The closest thing was this Abrasive ball they have 3 different grits and I got the 80 grit to test out. What it turns out to be is pads like you would use to clean a greasy pot in your sink bolted together to make this ball but with a little bit of sand or other grit glued to the out side.I got the 80 grit thinking it would make fast work out of some ...

Does the job, except dust collection

Does the job, except dust collection

11-30-2015 01:13 PM by whope | 3 comments »

I’m making a bunch of chopsticks (72 pairs) for Christmas. I decided that my Rigid sander was going to be too akward to do so many and after reading some reviews, I picked up this little machine. I had to order it as none of the Big Blue Box Stores in my area carried one in stock. I was home when it was delivered and heard a crash as the driver of the Brown Truck dropped it in the truck. Sigh. I opened the garage so he wouldn’t have to carry it up the stairs to my front door. O...

grizzly 15" disc sander review

grizzly 15" disc sander review

09-14-2015 12:48 PM by pinebeetle23 | 4 comments »

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) I...

FastCap Fastbreak

FastCap Fastbreak

08-13-2015 12:17 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 2 comments »

Just a quick review.I picked up a FastCap Fastbreak sander the other day at Menards. I an currently building a router cabinet and working on the drawers which will have the plywood edges covered with veneer tape. This little thing is pretty cool. It works great for putting on a slight bevel on the veneer let alone cleaning up the edges of the bare plywood. It really makes short work of treating the edges. I highly recommend this.

My review of the Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Spindle Sander

My review of the Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Spindle Sander

07-22-2015 01:32 AM by coloradotrout | 45 comments »

Hi, after much deliberation, and reading and rereading the FWW review, I bought the EB4424, Ridgid Oscillating Spindle Sander. 8/4/15 Update:I returned #2. I then took a combo square off the display and applied it to the display unit sander. Much flatter table, and much more coplaner tables (tiltable table relative to fixed), and near perfect perpendicular table to spindle. All I can suggest is the older models were machined with much tighter tolerances. In my opinion the latest F...

Major Issues with Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Sander

Major Issues with Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Sander

04-20-2015 04:05 PM by nashley | 28 comments »

I purchased this ridgid sander 2 days ago after reading a lot of great reviews. The assembly went together very quickly and easily and the fit and finish of the sander appeared to be on par with the price. It wasn’t until I installed the belt assembly onto the spindle that I first noticed something wasn’t right. When installing the “spindle knob” (item 1 in the attached parts list diagram), I noticed that the threads were not even close to concentric to the shank of th...

New drum sander

New drum sander

04-07-2015 04:27 PM by Ladislav | 5 comments »

Hi everyone!! I finaly got bigger drum sander :))!! I used to had 16-32 performax but without sand smart, and it was ok but only after I removed the trip braker and bypass it. But still it was quite a work to get a full kitchen ( doors) thru it . And also annoying to have to do two passes on wider doors and not being able to keep sander set perfect to the table , but on the end it had to be lil higher wich meant i basicaly run everything twice , run once flip and in again . I was looking at 2...

I purchased arbortech’s contour Random orbit sander. I build a lot of maloof style furniture and this little baby is a life and time saver. If you watch the YouTube video made by arbortech. There is no BS. It works as advertised. The rubber head can be replaced if needed (15-20 dollars). It is made well and with a little care will out last me. It uses sticky back paper which you can order from arbortech or do like me buy 5 or 6 inch discs and with a sharp pair of scissors make your...

Simple tool but its great at what it does

Simple tool but its great at what it does

This was a Christmas gift and this is the first time I had to use it today on the chop of my workbench I’m building. A sanding block is something that almost doesn’t deserve a review I think but I really like this. It’s size is perfect for straightening out an edge which is what I used it for today. It fits perfectly in the hand and I think this may reduce fatigue ‘cause I used the heck out of it and my arm was tired but not my hand. I wasn’t sure how well the...
