WOOD magazine review

General International 15-035DC Belt/Disc Sander

Review Summary

High points: Powerful when sanding on the disc, with an average stock-removal rate on the belt. Built-in dust collector with 5-micron filter bag does a superb job on both belt and disc, and makes it an attractive choice for users without a dedicated dust-collection system. In addition to the typical parallel-running miter slot, the disc table also has a slot perpendicular to the disc face for use with a circle-sanding jig.
Low points: The belt arm must be held horizontally while you tighten it because there’s no stop to prevent it from over-rotating, and it secures with a hexhead wrench.
