Grizzly G1276 Belt/Disc Sander

Review Summary

High points: Cast-iron trunnions on the belt and disc tables lock solidly. Belt sander changes easily from horizontal to vertical and back. Low points: Under heavy sanding pressure on the disc, we were able to stall the motor. Tension-release mechanism must be held open to remove the belt. No dust-collection port on the disc, and the 3" port on the belt is an odd size. Belt-tracking adjustment instructions aren’t clear in manual.
Using both tracking-adjustment knobs proved cumbersome, and we were just as successful adjusting only the front knob. More points: This sander was one of only two benchtop models in our test.
