    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,

    Rhys

    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.

    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.

    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
