WOOD magazine review

Powerful yet still lightweight

Review Summary

High points: Portable with light weight (63 lbs) and carrying handles. Has holes for bench mounting. Powerful enough to sand hardwoods under heavy pressure. Table-angle scale proved accurate and adjustable. The only model we tested with an above-table shield (removable) that covers the side of the disc that should not be used. Low points: No rubber feet to hold it still when not mounted. The only tested sander with no means of adjusting the table in and out in relation to the disc.
Odd-size miter-gauge slot requires you to use supplied flimsy miter gauge.
