I’d like to have at least 60” in the available width. So far the stand out for me is the Grizzly G1140 6” x 80” Floor Model Edge Sander. Anyone have experience with this model or recommend an alternative?

Where are you at? I’ve seen a either a 60” or 80” grizzly on craigslist in Baton Rouge, la for a while.

Just to clarify, you’re looking for a total belt length no less than 60” correct? Making sure you’re not looking for an edge sander with at least 60” of work table on each side, they do exist and they are gigantic for even a decent sized cabinet shop.

It’s a compromise, but some stroke sanders will do edge sanding. Mine
can do about 8’ but the piece has to be held on edge on top of the
machine, or mounted to the table underneath. The only full-length
platten is on top. An edge sander with a 60” platten is a pretty
big machine and would need to take a belt at least twice that length.

Here’s a 127” edge sander on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Crouch-6x127-Edge-Sander-3ph-220V-/281380065894?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item41838f1266

60-80” total belt length, about 20-30” workable sanding area per side.

Don’t know if you ever found one or not, but I’m considering selling my G1140 if you’re still interested.

I put the purchase on hold and decided to upgrade the table saw last year instead.

Have your say...
