I am looking for a combination sander. One with a belt, disk, and drum on
the same machine, for small items. They range all over the map pricewise.
Without going to a real high quality unit, which is a lot more than I need,
what would be a good unit? I'd like one that has a horizontal as well as
vertical belt, although that may be possible with the same machine.
Figure to spend around $150. Is that possible? Maybe at a pawn shop?
Gosh, as I always heard arriving at my fishing spot, "You should have
been here last week!"
Larry Blanchard kindly recommended this disc sander substitute for $18.99 :
I was looking at sanders from Grizzly, and Leon suggested to look for
one with a cast iron wheel.
That may help you to admire this unit <deep breath>:
Once you start admiring all of the features on it:, nice cast iron
table, built in brake, etc., you'll forget all about what you planned to
spend! : )
I think we're in the same boat, maybe we can go "Half-sies"?
How far are you willing to drive to use it?? : )
I've had two of he Ryobi 4" sanders.
4" belt and 6" disk.
But they don't last very long - at least in my hands.
I saw a couple of units at Harbor Freight for well under a buck each.
One is a 4" belt with disk, the other a 1" belt (?).
I'm going to grab both of them when we get moved and I have a shop again...
