    Drum sanders...

    Well since I've started doing some veneer work I've decided I must have a new bandsaw and drum sander. Finding a used bandsaw will probably happen soon, I hope, but I'm less familiar with drum sanders. Just wondering what a fair used price on a sander in good shape would be. Also, what...

    Sand-flee sanders

    Does anyone here have a Sand-flee sander? If so, what model, and do you like it? What applications have you used it for? It looks like it would be possible to build your own version of it by using the "innards" from here...

    Disk vs combo vs edge sanders

    What does a disk sander do that the belt on a combo sander or edge sander wouldn't do? I'm sure as soon as someone tells me, I'll be embarrassed, But right now, I just don't see it

    Bowl sanders

    As a darksider in training, I would like to know what kind of bowl sanders the more experienced folks are using? Also I see sanding disks come in the 1", 2" and 3" sizes. Any preferences on the sizes?

    Belt/File Sanders

    Hi Everyone, I was looking around for a different type of sander to fit into tight spaces and came across this one from Makita. Milwaukee also makes one similar. I was wondering if anyone knows of any other brands that may be a bit cheaper. I know that you get what you pay for but thought that...

    Sanders- Which would be better all round??

    Morning all, I find myself needing to buy a sander, other than the typical flat vibrating, orbital and angle/corner sanders... I have narrowed (??) it down to either an "Oscillating Spindle Sander", likely a bench top model or one of the combo "Belt/Disk sanders". It will mainly be used for...

    Stopped off at the Cary Home Depot and found a Bosch 1/4 Sheet Palm finishing sander (1297DK) on clearance for $29.00. It appears that they are clearing them out cause there was none on display. (Pretty good deal if you are in the market. Lowes want $54.00 for it.) They were about halfway...

    RO sanders

    I'm in the market for a new random orbit palm sander. I currently have the 5" Ryobi VS, and I would like something that is a little easier on my hand (the vibration is a little on the excessive side). I've been told to go with the Porter Cable Quick Sand, but I like the looks of the new Bosch...
