Questions & Answers

Is there a disc brake on it?

After a while, it stopped by itself. My experience with this has never been problematic.

In what direction should one measure the distance between the inside edge of the miter and A sander with at least 3 inches would be useful for an angle jig. Thanks for any help you can provide. ?

A measure of 3 1/4" from the inside of the track to the disc was made.

In the time since writing your review, how has your opinion of this Shop Fox sander changed? Is it more important to be critical or less? I would like to know more about this. ?

The sanders are good value for their price, but they are better suited for use in a woodworking There are problems with the on/off switch on these units because it is not well sealed, and metal fines go into the switch, causing it to short However, they have proven to be quite sturdy sanders other than the switch problem. As a general purpose work product, we will continue to use this, however for production work we have switched to another brand of paper that meets our quality requirements.

What is the performance of this sander ?

The program works great! This is the only product I use on metal. Everything from brass to stainless steel and copper will work with it. Since AO disks don't last as long as ceramic disks, you want to get ceramic disks.

As far as I'm concerned, it works great It's sort of true
3/5

For almost a year now, I have been using this sander, and I have been impressed with its quiet and powerful motor. Although the table is heavy, it is not precision cast, typical Chinese work that is less than perfect. It took a little time to hone and finish it with a quality finish protector. Almost as good as Harbor Freight in terms of overall quality. There is no sense in having a miter gauge, it is essentially I am trying to repair mine after it broke today. I can't find a 5/8-inch miter. Even with a little patience, you can get it to work, but no award will be given for it. It is not wise to It does work, which is a good thing.

The first time I used it, it worked well
5/5

This type of sander does not offer a lot of features. An external motor, a disk, and an external platform are all involved. The disk ran true with no wobble, and everything was flat. In the future, I wouldn't think twice about purchasing this product Despite not taking up a lot of space, it is heavy enough to sit still and be heard over the noise of the traffic.

Buying from someone who stands behind their product is the best choice
3/5

I really liked the disc sander when I first got it in April 2021. It ran Our use of the Sander was with minimal running time. A minute's worth of work at a time could add up to less than two hours of running time over the week, since Covid19 work was done only a couple of days each My sander had stopped working in June after I began to smell something burning, looked around my shop for smoke only to find that it was the cause. The nice quiet running sound changed to a soft rattling coming from the motor, which meant the end of this machine. However, I would like to mention a special thanks to the people at Amazon, they were extremely helpful, even though I had bought the product after the return period had ended. They refunded the amount to me.

Disc sander with the best performance
5/5

I bought this on a great Amazon deal. Despite its excellent performance and quiet operation, the machine is extremely efficient. In comparison, I have a Shop Fox Oscillating Spindle Sander that makes a lot of noise, but this one is quiet. You will actually enjoy the low calming sound of this sander as you work. The HP is plenty strong and the sanding surface is sufficient for most jobs. There is a bit of a price difference between the disc sander and some of the other disc sanders, but it's well worth it and if you can get it on a discount, it's even better.
