Not what you asked for... But...
A little more than a year ago, I was making a similar decision for a 12"
disc sander. I elected to spend more for the Jet version. Yes, it's
about $120 more than the Delta, but the table is about 50% larger, comes
with a couple added accessories as well as weighs almost 30 lbs more. It
also has a 4" dust collection hose fitting and internal dust fan. (My
Jet came from Amazon, which says it does not come with a sanding disc in
the description, but mine did - 80 grit as I recall.)
Never thought I'd be writing this, but an added selling point for me was
that the Jet is made in Taiwan while the Delta is made in China.
I've sanded wood, bone, steel, cast iron, and alabaster - I'm very
pleased with it and feel the additional $120 was well spent. It's a tank.
