Central Machinery 12'' Direct Drive Bench Top Disk Sander

605 days ago by AJswoodshop | 9 comments »

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

1215 days ago by WoodArtbyJR | 6 comments »

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

1203 days ago 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...

High Speed Air Sander with Jacobs Chuck

High Speed Air Sander with Jacobs Chuck

1115 days ago by Raymond | 3 comments »

My last find from my recient trip to Harbor Freight was this Air Sander with Jacobs chuck. 18000 RPM 4 CFM @ 90 PSI. come with 3 backing plates 3” 4” and 5.5” and a 3/8 jacobs chuck. Tons of power, it was missing one of the wrenchs but Harbor Freight customer service sent one right out. One reviewer on HF’s site commented that the sholder on the nut that holds the backing plate and sand paper on is very shallow I have to agree and infact turned a new one on my metal la...

Just burned out my 12 year old green Bosch 5” ROS, and found myself in dire need of another to finish off edging a floor. Head full of “will I buy the cheapest one?/will I buy a decent one?” on the way to the tool shop. Still undecided I had a look at all on display.I explained that I wanted something with a dual personality, something that would breeze through floor edging when required, yet show a bit of restraint for sanding cabinets. Having discounted the Bosch, Makita, ...
