  • Who makes the best 1 x42 inch belt sander

    Hi
    I have a 1 x 30 inch belt and disc sander and I would like to get a
    1 x42 inch belt sander with bigger disc, I know delta doesn't make them anymore so any suggestions besides the awfully expensive Jet one?
    Thanks

    I went with the Jet. Here is where I got it from Enco - Guaranteed Lowest Prices on Machinery, Tools and Shop Supplies
    They usually have deals on them different times of the year.
    The other models I saw just did not seem to be built as well.

    I don't want no bargains, they always cost me more money.

        KJS, I have one of those machines and while I am the first to admit it is not a Rolls Royce model it has done everything I have asked of it over the past 5 years or so. I did remove the side disc sander and table and just use the vertical belt.

            that Wilton and the Jet sure look alike.

                Just of interest: The Tekcast Industries sander has the capability of of inside sanding. The belt is rearranged through the spare pulley in the top assembly and the looped end of the belt is fed through the item to be sanded and it will then sand inside faces. I have used this facility and it worked OK.

                Cheers,

                  My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                  None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                  What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                  The bags seem easier on the surface.
                  But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                  Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                  As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
