    It's okay

    Posted by Brandon on 7th Apr 2022

    It's just okay and here's why: - The good -- It's cheap -- The belt size is standard so belts are quite easily accesible (LeeValley even has some, just not the blue zirc ones - they're crap) -- It has both a belt and disk configuration -- The motor is powerful enough to do most jobs - The bad -- The on/off button is a pain to toggle because of the dust cover -- The tool rests are absolute rubbish. I had to make a better one for the belt sander because the one it comes with is too small and unreliable (it can loosen and fall down). -- The bearings are terrible. After some modest use the rear bearing is already toast. That could be due in part to the next bullet. -- The wheels are plastic and wear out easily. My rear adjustment wheel wore down excessively to the point where the belt was rubbing against the metal frame and the belt tracking could no longer be adjusted. Trying to adjust the tracking put the wheel at an angle which puts additional stress on the bearing. I've since made new wheels out of plywood and used new bearings. -- The platten is very thin and short -- The motor bogs down when you're trying to hog material off

    Quiet Belt/Disc Sander

    Posted by Steve Hunter on 2nd Mar 2021

    The low noise this sander makes is most likely because of the bearing quality. Good quality bearings equals low noise. The machine set up easily and performed as expected on the belt side. The disc wobbles though and this means that most of the sandpaper surface will never bee used. I will Jane to remove the sandpaper and actually sand the aluminum backing plate to get it true. It will be perfect once I do this. A higher quality machine would not have this problem.

    Just wish the on/off button was a bit larger for my big fingers

    Great little grinder.

    Posted by Justin on 29th Jun 2020

    Not the most powerful grinder, but works perfectly for grinding small blades. If you put too much pressure on the belt it will bog down, but keeping moderate pressure it works really well. The dust extraction system works well. The only issue I had was the platen. It didn’t sit exactly parallel to the belt, but a quick adjustment and it’s good to go.

    Great little sander

    Posted by Eric Dufresne on 21st Mar 2018

    Got this a few days ago and I am very pleased with it. I was looking for a small and affordable sander for my hobby projects and this turns out to be a great deal. It's compact yet effective and quiet. The dust extraction works great too.

    great sander

    Posted by Martin on 8th Jan 2018

    Just received my belt/disc sander! Tested it out with some pine and works great. Tried it with a knife I'm working on as well and it worked great. Shipping was super quick. Bought on sale for 105$. Great deal for the tool. And can't beat free shipping. I would recommend busy bee tools to all my friends. Thanks again.
