This week I spent some time redoing a Delta 6X132 Edge Sander and a Ritter 4X132 Edge Sander.

I laminated the tables, thoroughly cleaned and lubed and put a fresh coat of paint on the sander after a thorough sanding of all metal surfaces.

Pics below of the Ritter as follows:

The Delta Edge Sander, I completely fabricated and laminated the entire top portion that sets just above the belt. The sander was missing the gaurd/dust port portion and this portion of the sander was listed at 500.00 online. So I made my own. It turned out great. I do not have a before picture of this sander. I did not do any painting on this sander, just a thorough cleaning and lubricating.

This Delta is actually the better sander, although both the Ritter and the Delta are both great in the shop. Both are for sale and the one that does not sell will become our full time sander.

Thanks Chrisstef, I am finding that I love restores myself. They are fun and generally do not take that long.

I still have a PM66 and a 20” PM bandsaw that I want to restore back to like new condition. Those two projects will be fun but will have to wait until I can save some money :)

They can drink up a bit of cash but if youve got the gear to work on it its really satisfying. I did a 6” rockwell jointer and ive got a rockwell drill press to do as well. The guy i bought my grissley G1023 off of dis a ton of restores and thats how he is funding bulding his new shop (partially). He has the grizz, a unisaw, and a PM66 all torn apart when i was there.

I cant wait to see you next restore. Nice work Jerry.
