Topic tags/keywords: humor resource trick hb harbor freight amazon belt sander

I was searching for plans to build my own 1×30” belt sander this morning. Just to see, I looked at HB and Amazon to price compare buying vs building. Amazed to find Amazon had a Grizzly model H3140 selling for $102.39. At HB I found their Central-Machinery – item#61728 selling for only 54.99.

I’m not going to the trouble of uploading pics just to prove my point (look for yourselves). But they are exactly the same unit. And I mean everything is the same except one has Grizzly and the other Central-Machinery.

I am a Grizzly fan I own one of their Bandsaws and a large spindle sander. And I wouldn’t hesitate to buy from them again. But sometimes you just got to be careful. Buyer beware.
