Been reading for a while, but decided to jump in with an actual account and become active and hopefully contribute in some way. Pretty new to everything, but built up a shop in the last couple of years that I am happy with, for now :) ... and it has been a lot of fun learning and tinkering. Hoping to learn more from all of you.
I do have a tool related question for all you experts out there. I have been able to pick up a couple of Porter Cable 352vs belt sanders for a steal! I am going to keep one and probably sell the other to a friend of mine. The two that I have are Type 2 and Type 6. The Type 6 is 8.0 amps and the Type 2 is 7.0 amps. They look and feel almost identical, but the Type 6 is in newer shape, not to say the Type 2 is in bad shape. It is in pretty good shape as well. The big difference, from what I can tell, other than the amps, is that the Type 2 was made in the USA and the Type 6 was made in Mexico. The bag is missing on one of them, but fits both so I’ll keep that with whichever one I keep. Which one would you all keep?
