By Sandra Bihner on February 7, 2009
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 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!

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.

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.

6/14/16 update.
Rather than muck around trying to MacGyver this thing I decided to buy the new motor, gearbox and drive chain.
The new motor is about 2 X the size of the old motor and heavier. The gearbox looks more substantial as well. I didn't open the gear box to look at it.
I was also informed by Grizzly that should the plastic gear fail, and I know it will, Grizzly has replacement gears for $25.

5/31/16 update.
1 star down from 5. Very disappointed in this product at this point.
Had this machine for 9 years now. I don't use it all that much. Maybe 30-40 hours a year.
As others have stated, the plastic gear that connects the belt motor to the chain via a worm drive has issues. I get the fact that the machine has this weak link. Better to break a $20 gear than break the machine. It happens 2 ways.
1. you manage to jam a piece of wood and the belt tries to keep turning but can't. Bang, there goes the gear.
2. you turn the thickness crank a bit too far and try to remove too much wood. To much belt pressure and there goes another gear.
I broke my first gear within months of purchasing. Since then I have replaced the gear 3 or 4 times. No biggie.
I just broke it again. Ordered a new gear. the wrong gear got delivered. I called.
"Oh, the gear you need is no longer available. Sorry. We do have the whole motor, gear and chain sprocket assembly. $180!"
Seriously? $180??? I'm not buying it especially after reading the shaft now breaks as easily as the gear. That's another $180 please!
I guess I'll have to figure some way to direct drive the motor as others have. Anyone got pics of their contraption?

Out of the box, this thing ran perfectly.
