"Benny" and Her JET

"Benny" and Her JET

01-05-2010 07:55 AM by mmh | 3 comments »

Well, I may need to change my name to “Benny” for this title, but this is my latest addition to the wood workshop as I dearly needed an upgrade from the Craftsman 6” x 36” belt sander which I tend to replace every 18 months (via 2 yr. service contract). The difference between the Craftsman 6” x 36” and the JET 6” x 48” models are like Night vs. Day. Same concept, but the function and quality are on opposite sides of the spectrum. For the pr...

Small sander that does a big job

Small sander that does a big job

02-27-2010 09:52 PM by Sawdust4Blood | 8 comments »

I bought one of these because I was looking for a detail sander that could get me into the corners of furniture projects. But since I make sawdust almost every weekend, I was looking for something that was going to last. I had looked around at a lot of other detail sanders and they all struck me as cheap flimsy things designed to be used on one or two projects then forgotten or thrown away. I also considered a couple of the multi-function tools for their utility but sanding was more important...

Sand Devil

Sand Devil

11-11-2010 02:05 AM by bluejazz | 5 comments »

I hate sanding. Among woodworkers of course, that about is as unique an impression as ‘Hitler was a bad guy’. This tool truly does make sanding easier. First off, cutting sandpaper and getting it into my 3M sanding block was a major pain. I’m sure there are better choices than 3M in sanding blocks and making your own is an option. But this Sand Devil has been a huge improvement for me. First off even with my Sandpaper cutting jig, cutting to size is burdensome if ...

A Great And Simple Little Machine

A Great And Simple Little Machine

01-02-2011 10:39 PM by Dustmite97 | 3 comments »

I have had this sander for almost a year now and it has been great. I always needed a disc sander but always had trouble trying to pick one. There are many similar ones to the sander that I have and there are also combination units with a disc and a belt. I decided I really only needed the disc since I only sand wooden toy parts, bandsaw boxes, and for shaping plus I have limited shop space. I decided to choose this sander. The 12 inch disc makes for lots of sanding surface which is a big adv...

Affordable Drum sanding Finally

Affordable Drum sanding Finally

02-25-2011 06:28 AM by sawblade1 | 21 comments »

Today I received this little guy in my shop :) Drum sanders are expensive especially conveyor fed ones however Grizzly’s new 10” drum sander fits the bill at 345.00 and put it into the range of most average woodworkers. To have one is a luxury but a well deserved one. The sander left the boards smooth and scratch and track mark free. I set mine up with 180 grit paper instead of the 80 grit it came with. I only give it five stars with a few exceptions. On the sander I received ...

Flatmaster 24" Drum Sander

Flatmaster 24" Drum Sander

01-13-2014 02:30 PM by retfr8flyr | 18 comments »

I know there are a couple of reviews on the Flatmaster Sander but I thought I would give my impressions of my new 24 inch Flatmaster. I have had this sander for about 4 months now and have run many different projects and wood types on it and it does a great job. Unlike most drum sanders, it is a hand feed sander so some will be turned off immediately but they would be missing a great sander. I purchased the ready made metal cabinet version. There are other various forms of the sander in ki...

Sandpaper Holder - for hand sanding

Sandpaper Holder - for hand sanding

03-29-2011 07:17 PM by Don Johnson | 3 comments »

Although I now cannot find it, I’m sure I recently saw a Project for making sandpaper holders to ease the task of hand sanding, so the subject was on my mind when I received my latest ‘Current Special Bargains’ e-mail from Lidl. (This is a cut-price supermarket company, similar to Aldi – both of which sell in the UK although they are based in Germany. Besides food, etc., they usually offer a variety of DIY products, but none could be called ‘top-of-the-range&...

Delta 31-260x Drum Sander Review

Delta 31-260x Drum Sander Review

Delta Drum Sander 31-260x Video Review on youtube Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koEMTEoB2rA Part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLfVV_1LDes&feature=related Disclaimer I would rather of not chosen something like the Delta drum sander, but finding a used commercial unit that I liked had been a battle over the past year. To be honest, I really did not want a sander with only a 1-1/2 HP motor although width was not an issue here. I wanted something like a 5 HP 26” ...

Rockler Abrasive Cleaning Stick  (Rockler Item# 46987)

Rockler Abrasive Cleaning Stick (Rockler Item# 46987)

06-26-2011 11:25 AM by David Grimes | 18 comments »

I am certain most of you either have used these or know about them, but… for those of you who do not: I began using a combination belt / disk sander in my home shop a couple of months ago, so I ordered one of these cleaning sticks soon after since my belt was loading up a bit. When I used it on both the 4” belt and the 8” disk, they were almost instantly de-loaded and restore to like new condition. People, quite frankly I was actually a bit amazed at how well this piece...

 Sandvik Sandplates replacement product

Sandvik Sandplates replacement product

02-12-2012 03:19 AM by RBWoodworker | 5 comments »

Years ago..I bought a whole bunch of the Sandvik Sandplates in a clearance bin, and as most who know this product, also know’s they’ve been discontinued.. This company sells something very similar and works just as good.. I have also heard of the SandDevil and they’re great too.. I wrote a blog on these if anyone is interested in reading it.. I give them a 5 star because quite frankly..they work like a 5 star.. read the blog and I tell how I use them on my chairs.. http:/...
