A Very Solid Machine - With easy results.

A Very Solid Machine - With easy results.

02-05-2017 12:44 AM by Matt | 13 comments »

This was purchased from a local Woodcraft with the help of SuperMax tools putting together a package (the SKU didn’t exist) with the closed stand instead of the open stand that comes with it by default. The sander goes together very easily, as does the stand and getting it tuned up is also very easy to do. My sander was off a little on the conveyor tracking, but that was easily fixed in about 5 minutes. The results that I’ve seen with it so far are nothing short of outstanding...

Festool ETS EC 125/3 5" Random Orbit Sander

Festool ETS EC 125/3 5" Random Orbit Sander

12-13-2016 03:38 PM by TechTeacher04 | 7 comments »

I spent this summer working in a cabinet shop, this was my first exposure to Pneumatic sanders. They used 3m, Dynablade and Mirka variants. I liked the light weight and low center of gravity. I have been using Dewalt and Bosch 5” Random Orbit Sanders for personal projects and in my school classes. The finish was good but I was striving for a better result and to do it quicker. I was on a waiting list for the Festool Pro 5 sanders that sold out so quickly, while waiting I stopped by the ...

3M Random Orbital Sander - Elite Series 28498, Air-Powered, Non-Vacuum, 5 Inch

3M Random Orbital Sander - Elite Series 28498, Air-Powered, Non-Vacuum, 5 Inch

12-10-2016 02:22 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

Most of the time I write a review of a product after I give it a period of time to break or at least after a couple of extensive projects. I’ve decided to review this one after about two hours of use. Just wanted to as I was impressed. I’ll be back if things should go south over time. My Bosch sander, which I really liked, bit the dust a bit to soon for my tastes. It was a really good electric sander that had low vibration and worked well over the past three years. Since I&#...

Norton Ceramic Sandpaper disks

Norton Ceramic Sandpaper disks

11-14-2016 08:47 PM by PPK | 6 comments »

I’ve (unfortunately) used a lot of sanding disks in my history of wood working. One thing that makes sanding a little more pleasurable is having good abrasives. I’ve found that the best abrasive is the Norton Ceramic disks. Coming in Second, right behind these would be the 3M-brand purple disks. I believe these purple ones are either ceramic or a ceramic blend abrasive. At any rate, the ceramic disks do cut more aggressively, so you often have to choose a grit step of two up fr...

Terrible design flaw and weak materials in this latest O.S.S.

Terrible design flaw and weak materials in this latest O.S.S.

06-20-2016 05:39 PM by CyberDyneSystems | 7 comments »

We’ve wanted an O.S.S. in the shop for some years. This year we had a windfall from the University and I was given 30 days to spend the money. (this is sort of a thing at Universities!) For new machines in the $1,500.00 price range, I had settled on the Jet JOVS-10 some time ago based partly on my experience with the bench-top JBOSS-5. (which I have reviewed favorably in the past, and own at home) Low and behold, Jet has replace the JOVS-10 with a newer model that sports many impr...

Dustless Hand Sanding

Dustless Hand Sanding

04-10-2016 10:52 PM by AandCstyle | 2 comments »

I have pretty good dust collection in my shop until it comes to hand sanding. Then there has been no dust collection at the point of creation and the air filter goes full blast over my head. However, that means that the dust I create goes right by my nose and I wake up coughing during the night. Today, that changed! This ergonomically shaped Mirka Abranet Vac Block sanding block with built in dust collection collected the dust so well that I couldn’t smell the walnut I was working...

Awesome machine for the $$

Awesome machine for the $$

Was looking for a solid bench top belt sander for a reasonable price. Found this at Lowes for 179. Well made, no vibration adequate tables ( hey it’s a sander)well packed and a snap to assemble. Fit and finish is good industrial style . Low noise. Easily adjusted belt tracking. Fits right up to my Rigid 2 1/2 shop vac hose for excellent dust control. Just spent 2 hours sanding 114 pine blocks all edges, machine didn’t event get warm. I don’t think there is a bett...

Disappointed

Disappointed

03-23-2016 08:41 PM by andy_P | 14 comments »

I had to replace my 15 plus years old Delta disc/belt sander and opted for the “priced right” Skil. The minute I unpacked it I could tell that the quality I was used to was not there. The body is plastic and I have had a heck of a time trying to keep the belt running straight. While running it sounds like it is going to fall apart. I will say that Skil is willing to send me a shipping label and repair the unit, but for the time and hassle of finding a strong box, taking it to ...
