Just an ok sander

Review Summary

Pros: The stationary drum/moving platen design is rock solid. No deflection. 18/36 size is very nice. Paper changes are easy Spec says min thickness 1/8" but I can sand down to nothing. Belt tracking is easy. Cons: There are a lot of daily lubrication points, some which are very difficult to get to.
My motor overheats often and starts popping the breaker after a short time of use. No option to rewire the motor to 220V. Over all I am happy with the sander but I got it for half price off of Craig's List. At full price you might want to check out the Delta.
