Work Horse!!!

I had this on my wish list and my wife purchased this for my birthday and I was not disappointed after opening up the box and putting it up on my workbench. 

6 x 9 Disc Sander is a Woodshop Essential

The disk sander is great for doing precise sanding and for sharpening your wood tools, shaping parts for your projects and cleaning burrs and such. .  The work table attatchment is extremely stable and sturdy and it is adjustable from 90 to 45 degrees. the work table has a miter slot and a miter guage to work with. This work table easily is attatched to either the sanding disk station or the belt sanding station.. This sander weighs approx 88 pounds and needs a solid work surface to operate off of. Eventhough, this unit has rubber feet to limit vibration and to keep from sliding around, I would recommend to secure the sander to your work surface by bolting it down.This sander sports a hefty 3/4HP motor and has plenty of power for just about any of your shop sanding needs. 

Changing the belts and disks is very easy and quick to do. The belt tracking is simple to use and requires no tools. the belt station can be operated horizontally or vertically and at various stops in between. I also recommend using a cleaning stick to help keep your disks and belts clean and lasting longer. There is a dust port to attatch your shop vac to to help limit dust around your work area. 

I have only had this bench top sander for a short time, but I have used it quite a bit already and was able to shape several parts for my current project and to clean up some other items that I have been working on. This saved me a lot of time from how I had to do this same work before. I plan on making me a work station soley for my new bench sander with rollers to be able to move around the shop as needed. 

My only complaints that I have found so far is that if you mount the sander, attatching the miter table to the back of the belt oprtion of the sander is a little hard to reach and if you need to use the end of the belt for contour sanding, you will need access to 3 different sides of your sander. Most work benches, this might be a problem to be able to access 3-sides of your sander with a adequate work area. so mounting to your work bench may limit your access to parts of the sander. I think building my mobile work station will solve this issue for me in my shop. This is my only negative for this sander.

I will update my review as I put more hours on the unit, but for the moment, I give my birthday gift  high marks and would have no issues recommending this unit to my friends or anyone in the market for a hefty bench top sander.

Junk machine

I bought this machine used once burned up. Got the run around about replace or fix it. They finely replaced and its no better. Just junk might be better as anchor for your boat.

Nicest 6" x 48" /9" Disc sander For the price on the market

|

Came delivered in great shape , works as it should , you will need to clean the disc plate with denatured alcohol to get the first sanding pad to stick , but that was no problem

Craftsman - Not what it used to be.

|

I spent some time researching bench sanders to replace the exact same model purchased 9 years ago. Honestly did not want to go with Craftsman. Quality has suffered, and don't believe warranty is viable -- was actually kind of surprised to find Sears is still in business somewhere (gone from my area for a while now)

At this price point, there is no real competition, so after a lot of hesitation, I pushed the button. Ugh - wish I had gone with something else. Amazed at how the product quality has changed. Components now plastic that were metal. The work platform especially is surprisingly cheap and flimsy now by comparison -- really does not hold square because the components are so thin and cheap - a little hand pressure moves it out of square, let along actually using it to sand something..

The base was so thin, it was bent during shipment, one of the rubber feet smashed off in the process. The base on my original unit was cast iron and solid. Lucky, a pair or pliers and minimal effort returned the cheap sheet stock to straight enough to hold the rubber foot, saving me the trouble of return/replacement. The adjustment lever mechanism is sloppy, thin plastic knob in place of good rubber on the original.

I'm disappointed, but figure I've got no-one to blame but myself for going with a has-been product -- should have listened to that little voice. I've got the old unit to use for spare parts, because I suspect I'll be needing spare parts for this thing almost immediately.
