If you have room spend a little more and buy a bigger machine.

Okay - when I first got this sander, I loved it.But there is a MAJOR design flaw in the conveyor belt motor. It has a small drive shaft in it that snaps where the shaft is milled into a worm gear. My first motor lasted several months before the drive shaft snapped. It was under warranty, so I got a new motor for free, but waiting for it to arrive set the kitchen project I was doing back a week and ticked off my customer. The second motor shaft snapped after less than three weeks, the third motor shaft snapped afer TWO HOURS!!! And I was REALLY babying the thing(I DO NOT abuse my tools - it's just not smart). Anyway, after the last motor shaft snapped last week I am now jury-rigging my own conveyor drive with an electric motor, a mandrel and some belts and pulleys - I had to take the chain sprocket off the drive shaft and take it to a machinist who sized it for the 1/2" shaft on my mandrel.The whole jury-rigged thing is now bolted onto the side of the sander and works quite well, though it looks like something out of the Beverly Hillbillies.My shop is full of big Grizzly tools that are solid performers and excellent tools, but stay away from this 12" sander until they fix the motor problem (they've gone through 3 series' of motors and they ALL have the same problem!)unless you REALLY like your tools constantly breaking down, wasting time and money and really ticking you off.By the way, the first tech guy I talked to at Grizzly admitted that the shaft breakage was a common problem. They now deny that there is ANYTHING wrong with the machine.

I purchased this sander a few months ago and have been very pleased so far. The shipping box had a hole punched in it but the sander was not damaged. It sanded beautifully right out of the box with no adjustments necessary. The main use is for edge sanding face frames. Whether you sand one or several at a time the tracking belt holds each piece in place. I would recommend the required 18 amp circuit or you will be re-setting your circuit breaker. I only have a 15 amp circuit which works fine as long as you don't push the sander too hard, especially if you sand wide pieces. Highly recommended.

I love this machine when it's working, but I just snapped my SECOND drive belt motor shaft this morning. The drum was barely touching the wood, taking very light passes, and...clunk. Time to call Grizzly to see what we can do about this.

I bought my Grizzly sander several years ago. I've had alot of trouble with it. The conveyor drive system is the problem. A plastic gear in the gearbox of the conveyer is designed to strip out easily. (per Grizzly tech)I've went through several and been sent the wrong gear once. That shut down my guitar making for a couple of months. A Grizzly tech told me I could tap the gear off of the shaft and put it on my original. ZZZZZZZZ...wrong! The plastic gear is moulded through the shaft and it broke when I tapped it. Grizzly sent me another gear (the right one). All this has taken months and by then I'd misplaced parts so I removed the drum cover and built a frame around the belt. Yes it is dangerous. Ahhh the things a hillbilly will do for the love of guitar building! If you buy one good luck. I doubt if anything else on the market is much better for the money. My bro says "How did they thin down guitar wood before they had drum sanders?" Go back to a hand plane I guess. Hey, its even kind of theraputic!

Drive shaft for the belt feed snapped off after only four uses. Very poor quality steel. However, grizzly was very good about taking it back and offering free shipping to return it.

Out of the box, this thing ran perfectly. Ran some rough sawn cherry and after a few passes, it was as smooth as a baby's butt. The manual was clearly written and contains more information than I ever expected. Dust collection is pretty good but some ends up on the floor even with my Grizzly 2hp collector. Nature of the beast I guess. A 4" dust port would be a nice addition.
This is going to be such a time saver. I'm building a new set of kitchen cabinets. 18 of them. With 25% of my time spent sanding, this unit is a god send. The price is back to the indroductory low price of $495, down from a high of $650. Better hurry, the price goes back to $650 after Christmas.

Update: This tool works exceptionally well. No problems. Makes a buttload of dust though. A good vacuum and dust collector are a must unless you dont care about dust. Put a little bend on the silver tabs at either side of the end of the belt. Otherwise the occasional piece of wood hangs up and makes a big fuss. Clean well after each use.

I managed to break it. A board got really jammed and the conveyor stopped working. Traced the problem to the gear housed in the worm gear case. It's nylon and is made to be the weak link. Grizzly sent a new gear for 20 bucks. I bought 2. Took an hour to fix. Make sure you detail how it comes apart or it's tough to put back together. Still, this machine is a real time saver!

I purchased this sander second-hand so it may have been abused before I purchased it. Can't blame Grizzly for that. The problems: the table lift/lower mechanism has developed a problem, which looks like it will be easy to fix, but.... The on/off switch failed. Again, easy to fix. Grizzly support is the best so getting the right parts and instructions on how to install them is easy.

The tool needs to be on it's own 20A breaker.

I changed the dust collection port to a 4" port simply because it's easier to use 4" ports on every machine. I suspect the 2.5" port would work fine. The 4" port certainly works.

Overall, I feel the sander works very well. One needs to take light passes. Works great for cleaning up thin panels that have been resawn. Nice lightweight drum sander.
