WOOD magazine review

Good sanding power and stock removal

Review Summary

High points: Good power when sanding on the disc, and an average stock removal rate on the belt. Accurate miter slot accepts a standard-size miter gauge. Low points: Belt tension release mechanism takes a lot of strength to operate and must be held open to remove the belt. Graphite pad on platen wore unevenly from end-grain sanding, leaving a dip in the pad just above table height. More points: Optional flap sander or pneumatic drum adds versatility to this machine.
A good performer at a premium price.
