Price: The least expensive sander in its category.
Heavy Duty! This is a beefy machine compared to the Craftsman. Appears to be a quality, industrial grade tool. Be sure to run a dedicated 30A circuit for this sander. I ran a new 30A, 120-volt circuit, but ran my shop vac and sander on the same circuit and tripped the breaker several times in less than 10 minutes.
Powerful! You cannot stop the sanding belt no matter how much pressure you put on your work piece. Aggressive sanding with the belt that shipped with the sander.
The 12" disk sander works very well. The tables seem flat and generously large compared to my old machine. The stand, even though having 4 legs instead of a cabinet is sturdy and stable.
Not too much of a problem, but worth mentioning: the sanding surface is several inches shorter than the Sears sander (same belt size 6 x 48 inches) because the front roller on the Delta has a much larger diameter than my old Sears model.
There is a small tag riveted to the top of the unit, just proud of, and parallel to the sanding belt on the right side. As you move your work piece side to side while sanding, the tag won't let you move a wide board off the right side of the belt. Again, not too big a problem, just grind off the rivets attaching the metal tag and remove it. Delta should re-evaluate placing the tag there in the first place.Read more ›
The two tables are great - very stable and solid. My only wish is that it be easier to remove the table on the belt portion of the sander. It sometimes is in the way on some projects and is cumbersome and heavy to manipulate, both when taking it off and putting it back on. However, a little practice improves this issue.
The only other area of mild concern is actually not specific to this machine but is common to all belt sanders. That issue is the drifting of the belt at different temperatures, tensions, and loads. It tends to start up drifting one way. Then, if the sanding session is long, it will change as the belt heats / loosens up. Then, to confuse the issue more, it will shift while you're sanding based on the amount of load you subject it to (how hard you push your work-piece into it). It eventually evens out but forces you to go through it again, the next time you start it up.
Finally, to repeat myself, it's a great machine and I'm very happy that I paid the extra needed to acquire it. Note: Delta recommends at least two people put it together - I second that. It's really quite awkward and heavy and cast iron only need one little drop onto concrete to start a crack or shatter. Use the buddy system!
