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

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 ...

Customer Service Matter Resolved

Customer Service Matter Resolved

I am a small cabinet shop. I have bought many parts from ereplacementparts over many years. I recently ordered a part for my sander that cracked somehow, a shroud that directed the dust into the bag. I looked at the schematic and with the descriptions, I determined that the part, described as a dust collection support seemed to be the right part. Upon arrival, I saw the it was not the right part and so disassembled the sander further and found that what I was looking for was described as a br...

Rigid R2601 Random Orbital Sander

I received my Rigid Orbital sander for Christmas this year and since then have had a chance to put it to good use on several projects. It’s my first Orbital Sander so I can’t compare it to other models based on personal experience but my choice was based on internet research that showed it to be among the best on the market at this time. Overall I would say it has fulfilled my expectations and I think my old Craftsmen palm sander is likely to start collecting a lot of dust in the future. T...

Smaller Shop Drum Sander

Smaller Shop Drum Sander

02-22-2016 05:00 AM by GersCustomWoodworks | 9 comments »

I got this as a time saver for me when sanding production parts. It works great for a smaller drum sander. Only two reasons I can’t give it five stars. The stand is way to short. But easy fix is just to add riser blocks between the stand and sander. The second is I really wish that they had made this sander big enough to open up to 3 1/2 inches to sand post sides. It only opens to about 3”.

Hard to beat

Hard to beat

I bought this for hobby shop work, mostly musical instrument making. it replaces the use of sanding spindles in a drill press. So keep in mind it is a HUGE improvement over that. I don’t have experience with other spindle sanders to compare it to This model is sold under various band names—Shop Fox, WEN, etc. I bought it at the local Woodcraft store. I had been looking at the Rigid oscillating edge sander, but there were just too many bad reviews of that thing and also I did...
