Review: ETS 125 EQ Random Orbital Finish Sander

REASON I BOUGHT A NEW SANDER: Sanding is not my favorite part of woodworking. I want the best result as quick as possible. I even considered getting a drum sander, but at $800+ and a chunk of floor space, I was reluctant. My DeWalt ROS would leave a lot of swirl marks, costing me time – in finding the swirls marks, and finding them after I started finishing! Also, the DeWalt would not do dust collection well. So, in an effort to finder better sanding down quicker with better dust collec...

 Huchins Speed file and Hookit sanding aids

Huchins Speed file and Hookit sanding aids

Here are a few tools that I have grown to love and really wouldn’t want to be without.The Huchins speed file is one tool that I reach for pretty well every time I’m in the shop. From buffing off a rough edge on a 2×4 to fine sanding before using finer grits. They are extensively used in the auto body shop world and are available from auto body supply shops. Had mine for 20 years at least. With the raised handle it keeps your hands away from the wood so you are less likely to ...

Central Machinery 12'' Direct Drive Bench Top Disk Sander

This bench top Disk sander comes in handy! Before I was using either my mouse sander, or a sanding drum in my drill press. But when I came across this Bench top disk sander at HF, It was the perfect tool for me. Positives,-Cast Iron table-Dust port which works well -Tilting Table,-1 1/2’’ HP motor-Easy to change sanding disk-Includes three sanding disk Negatives,-A little vibration-Not the best miter gauge It’s a great disk sander that I would highly recommend.

This has been nothing but a $700 paperweight. The Sandflee is an expensive unit compared to the model the inventor in Canada sells. However its made of steel and looks more of a real shop fixture. So I bought it. The build looked good out of the box. Very simple metal box. What they do not tell you is you really need to mount this to a bench. The unit is not something you could move on and off the bench as the motor to box connection is not solid. They call it the “portable 18” drum san...

Milwaukee 5" 8 hole cat#6021-21

I had burnt up my last sander and was in a pinch to get another. So I had found this sander at a box store for $80.00.The weight and balance are very good. Also the grip is rubber and a little smaller than most of the others that I picked up. I will say this, one good thing about big box store is that you can test ride a product. I do have a bad wrist and on my last project I have been doing a lot of hand planing, sawing and card scrapping. so my wrist is a little sore. This sander does have ...

Guinevere Sanding System Review

Guinevere Sanding System Review

When turning bowls I have always been upset with the sanding that is required to remove the “rip outs” and the other soft areas. Well, I saw this tool online and checked it out. I purchased it last year and thought that I should add a review so other LJ had an idea as to it’s worth (MHO). As you can see in the picture it comes with a rounded head and a cylindrical head sanding attachment. Both are rubber bladders that when inflated hold the sanding piece in place. The...

Grizzly G0529 Oscillating Spindle & Disk Sander

Grizzly G0529 Oscillating Spindle & Disk Sander

05-07-2011 05:00 PM by CreekWoodworker | 9 comments »

I purchased this tool about nine months ago and it has become one of my most used tools. This tool is heavy (180 lbs) and will require two people to set it up. The setup itself is fairly easy, the top portion of the sander comes assembled with the two tables attached. However, this is what makes it heavy and difficult to work with. The box the sander was delivered in was too large to fit through my basement door. My son I removed the top portion which is probably 90% of the weight, but it...
