  • 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,

                  Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....
