I bought this for hobby shop work, mostly musical instrument making. it replaces the use of sanding spindles in a drill press. So keep in mind it is a HUGE improvement over that. I don’t have experience with other spindle sanders to compare it to This model is sold under various band names—Shop Fox, WEN, etc. I bought it at the local Woodcraft store. I had been looking at the Rigid oscillating edge sander, but there were just too many bad reviews of that thing and also I did...

Powermatic 6" Belt/12" Disk Sander

Powermatic 6" Belt/12" Disk Sander

02-10-2016 03:38 AM by Kelly | 2 comments »

I’ve had this since 2013 and it is, definitely, an essential to my shop. In that time, I’ve learned: ASSEMBLY - Assembly was simple. I spent around an hour and a half, including adjustments of tables and tracking, then was able to plug the unit in and run it. For the most part, assembly could be figured out without the directions, but are still important for setting gaps between support tables and the belt or disk for safe operation. QUALITY - The unit operated...

Not Just a Sander, But an Investment In Efficiency

Not Just a Sander, But an Investment In Efficiency

I had just completed an oak, over-the-post stair railing system. It turned out beautifully, but because of construction methods required by the home owner, the fillets between balusters varied in height and sometimes raised as much as an eight of an inch above the two long pieces of oak sandwiching them and the balusters. Sanding them by hand would have involved rasps, several grits of paper and a week of hard work. Seeking a better way, I looked at other well known detail sanders, such as...

An Indispensable Addition to My Sanding Equipment

An Indispensable Addition to My Sanding Equipment

02-09-2016 09:33 PM by Kelly | 4 comments »

I’ve had this unit since about 2006. From shortly after I bought it and yet to this day, I consider this tool an indispensable addition to my sanding equipment. I think highly enough of it that I would upgrade to the floor model, if I didn’t have other upgrades to tend to first. The unit is a heavy, well built piece of equipment and, certainly, had much to do with my considering other Jet equipment purchases. In the years I’ve used this machine, it shows no signs of wear ...

 I Just Can't Say Enough Bad About This Sander

I Just Can't Say Enough Bad About This Sander

02-09-2016 07:37 PM by Kelly | 5 comments »

Let me make it clear up front, I am a huge fan of Bosch tools and own several, including a sliding miter, a job site table saw with a gravity base, hammer drills, a saber saw and a trim router. I am pleased with all of them and made that clear in my reviews I have written about Bosch equipment. But, then there is this little tool. Of course, for a sander to work, you, first, have to mount sandpaper on it. This tool allows that. You just shouldn’t turn the sander on and expect it to h...

Abrasive sanding ball

Abrasive sanding ball

A couple a months ago I needed a flap sander and went to Harbor Freight to pick one up, they had tons of sanding thingys but flap sanders no.The closest thing was this Abrasive ball they have 3 different grits and I got the 80 grit to test out. What it turns out to be is pads like you would use to clean a greasy pot in your sink bolted together to make this ball but with a little bit of sand or other grit glued to the out side.I got the 80 grit thinking it would make fast work out of some ...

Does the job, except dust collection

Does the job, except dust collection

I’m making a bunch of chopsticks (72 pairs) for Christmas. I decided that my Rigid sander was going to be too akward to do so many and after reading some reviews, I picked up this little machine. I had to order it as none of the Big Blue Box Stores in my area carried one in stock. I was home when it was delivered and heard a crash as the driver of the Brown Truck dropped it in the truck. Sigh. I opened the garage so he wouldn’t have to carry it up the stairs to my front door. O...

grizzly 15" disc sander review

grizzly 15" disc sander review

09-14-2015 12:48 PM by pinebeetle23 | 4 comments »

I have had this sander a couple years now. It has plenty of power, haven’t had any mechanical issues. The table is great, heavy and stable (even with an cast iron angle jig on it). The only issues to date has been the paint has peeled and flaked off on part of it, and the latch on the stand door broke. Minor issues only. I previously had a 12” disc that I was not satisfied with. (I do recommend getting Heavier weight discs than the grizzly ones (currently carried by them) I...
