WOOD magazine review

Good dust collection and disc changes

Review Summary

High points: Good dust collection with a single 4" port and blast gates to direct suction to the sander in use. Lower disc guard is a hinged door, making this the easiest sander for changing abrasive discs. 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: When placing heavy sanding pressure on the disc, we were able to stall the motor.
Post-mounted disc table deflected under sanding pressure and, when tilted down to 45°, reduced the capacity of the sanding disc, already the smallest in our test at 9". More points: Clockwise disc rotation is opposite of most disc sanders and takes some getting used to. Also available in an open-stand version.
