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)

1112 days ago 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

882 days ago 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:/...

SuperMax 19-38 exceeds expectations - a quick review

SuperMax 19-38 exceeds expectations - a quick review

300 days ago by EMC | 6 comments »

After much research and debate I decided to go with this sander as the best solution to my need to keep the physical size reasonable (due to limited shop space) and the budget fairly reasonable (I am comfortable paying more for better quality, but as a hobbyist can’t really justify spending several thousand dollars on a single tool). A $1399, this is not an inexpensive tool, but it is reasonable. And from everything I read it has some real advantages over Preformax/Jet for only a sm...

Klingspor hook and loop sandpaper - Great value and great paper

Klingspor hook and loop sandpaper - Great value and great paper

767 days ago by lumberjoe | 9 comments »

Since I have been doing a lot of projects lately, I got tired of running out of sandpaper when I needed it. I went to my local woodcraft to buy some bulk packs. I saw the Klingspor brand at a pretty god price for a box of 25 (around 11.00 for 5” hook and loop) and decided to take a chance. I previously used the Diablo hook and loop paper with a moderate level of satisfaction. I run my sander attached to a vacuum to keep the dust down and keep the paper somewhat clean. The Freud paper...

DeWalt 5 inch Random Orbital Sander

DeWalt 5 inch Random Orbital Sander

674 days ago by Purrmaster | 15 comments »

I’ve had this tool for several years now. I’ve tried to take good care of it and it has taken good care of me. The particular model number is DW26451. Single speed random orbital sander. It takes 5 inch hook and loop (velcro) discs. You can see it here: http://www.dewalt.com/tools/woodworking-sanders-random-orbital-sanders-d26451.aspx. I cribbed the image from their website as well. I’ve been very pleased with it. The thing just works. It’s been completely...

 Mirka Sanding Disks and Belts

Mirka Sanding Disks and Belts

161 days ago by b2rtch | 15 comments »

Last year when I remolded my kitchen, I bought on Amazon Mirka sanding disks in different grits. I was very satisfied with them. I used to buy all my abrasives from KLINGSPOR but the last time I checked their prices for sanding belts I had a sticker shock.The last sanding belts that I bought for my Ridgid sander, was also on Amazon. They were 100 grit Makita sanding belts. I noticed that they loaded very fast and I am really not happy with them. After a good experience with their sand...

Review of the Porter-Cable Orbital Sander Model 333

Review of the Porter-Cable Orbital Sander Model 333

2366 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 18 comments »

To be blunt, this will be my last Porter Cable Model 333. It is my third. The only one I like was bought in 1997, and I still use it. The one I bought in 2005 is dead. The one I bought in 2007 stinks. Now, don’t get me wrong. I “used” to love anything about a Porter Cable tool. My first warning sign was my laminate trim router I bought in 1997, and every P-C rep I talked to denied ever hearing about the problem with the collet getting crimped onto the bit sh...

6" Rotary and Orbital Festool RO 150 Sander

6" Rotary and Orbital Festool RO 150 Sander

2364 days ago by ShannonRogers | 5 comments »

I just bought Festool’s new 6” sander and it is truly everything as advertised. This is my first foray into Festool so I bought the package with the CT 33E dust extractor. Their dust extractors have been reviewed already on LJ so I will try to stay away from the extractor and focus on the tool. That being said, I a lot of my 5 star rating is influenced by the phenomenal dust extraction. Anybody who has done even 1 minute of sanding knows that the dust is what makes it so terri...

If you were only going to own one sander, this is it!

If you were only going to own one sander, this is it!

2213 days ago by Chris | 14 comments »

Over the last couple of months both my palm sander and ROS have bit the dust; of course they were about 8 or nine years old. I received this as a fathers day gift and boy am I glad I did. I decided to try out the claims I’ve heard regarding the efficient dust collection and life of the paper, not to mention the speed that it smooths a rough surface. A couple of months back I picked up a Big Leaf Maple slab and had done nothing with it; You can see the rough saw marks in the first pi...
