Guinevere Sanding System Review

Guinevere Sanding System Review

04-25-2011 05:17 PM 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

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...

High Speed Air Sander with Jacobs Chuck

High Speed Air Sander with Jacobs Chuck

08-03-2011 06:06 AM 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, ...

Why not to buy a Shopfox Drum Sander

Why not to buy a Shopfox Drum Sander

11-18-2011 03:33 AM by Det | 17 comments »

I purchased a W 1740 12 inch drum sander about three years ago. I have had nothing but trouble with this machine. It has plastic gears in the belt dtrive and I have had to replace that once already. Yesterday while out using the sander again, only used on small projects, the gear again stripped out. I contacted Shopfox technical support to order a new gear again and was told that part is no longer available. They have made a replaacement part (obviously because the one they had was cau...

Does it's Job for a Great Price

Does it's Job for a Great Price

12-15-2011 08:07 PM by Kelen | 8 comments »

I had been in the market for a combination belt/disc sander for quite some time and read as much as I could on all the various brands. I landed on the Craftsman one primarily for the attractive price (and the encouragement of my father-in-law who has had one for who knows how many years), however, comparing its specs to other competing sanders, in nearly every category it scored as good if not better. For starters, this sander is heavy at around 85 lbs, and so much so that I have not had ...

Delta 18-36 x5 drum sander.

Delta 18-36 x5 drum sander.

First off Thanks to Joe Lydon who introduced me to his buddy Bob that was selling this sander. I mentioned to him I was going to buy one and he told me about a buddy that had one that he never used. I’m not normally good at buying used stuff, but I trusted Joe. Bod said, “If I didn’t like it I could return it for a refund.” (Who does that now a day?) Not a bad deal for used sander. I was shocked how clean this was when I arrived. We agreed on the price and off we went. 5 stars t...

Freud Random Orbit Sanding Disks Go the Distance

Freud Random Orbit Sanding Disks Go the Distance

04-06-2012 08:32 AM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

Home Depot switched from Norton 3X to Freud abrasive products. I have tried the 120 grit and 150 grit 5” hook and loop disks, and they work very well. The ceramic blend of abrasives keeps cutting upwards of an hour of continuous sanding. I change them out of habbit, but they look like new and are still making sawdust. I didn’t have any disks come loose from either my Bosch or Dewalt sanders. The disks do not load up with dust like some brands. Cost is cheap – a 50 coun...
