Has anyone used or purchased a Grizzly G1140 edge sander. I’m thinking of buying one but I would like to see reviews or feedback on this tool.

I have the G0512 Edge Sander w/ Wrap-Around Table and it works nice. I looked at the G1140 and liked that it can be adjusted for horizontal face sanding. Having a stroke sander I decided to go with the G0512.

I’ve got a Powermatic Model 13 for sale. Is that ok to say here? I think I got some new belts for it too. It’s got under an hour of use total. Really. I bought it new and it just didn’t work out for me for what I envisioned. I bet I used it three times total for a few minutes each time.

I’m not able to ship it but I’m not that far from you. It’s a 6”x89” with the wrap around table on the end, and the table is longer along the belt then on the Grizzly. I also bought a mobile base for it so that goes with it.

If interested let me know. Unless offering to sell something is against the rules and I get banned….

Looking for some help with the electrical on the G1140. I got the tool w/ wood and jigs that I purchased privately, and so far haven’t used it. The 1140 is set up for 220 and my shop isn’t, so I’m attempting to change it to 110. The manual shows how the wires match, however, what I perceive to be the on/off or stop tab would be eliminated. This is a flat-slot set-up and the plastic caps, inside the box, would have to be removed. It appears that once the machine would be plugged in the power would be on.
Obviously I have minimal electrical experience so I’m asking before I started cutting and re-wiring.
Any suggestions?
