That would not normally be recommended, but I don't really need the disk sanding part, as I have a 12" stationary disk sander, so I was willing to risk it. It turned out fairly well, with the disk sander perfectly functional. One small problem has been that the 8" disk needs to be positioned exactly on the motor shaft, which has to be perfectly square to the housing, for is to fit under the belt housing. I got tired of fiddling with it, and left it off, but I'm sure I could set it up correctly, if I just took a bit more time with it.
The main thing for me is that the belt sander part works well, and it does. I see that this item is no longer available on Amazon, which is unfortunate because I think it's a good tool.
I received the sander very quickly. The sander was packaged well and all the parts were easy to find. The instructions were pretty straight forward. The instructions have you to loosen the motor mount bolts to be tightened after the belt sander assembly is installed. I understand why, but there is ONE BOLT/NUT that is almost impossible to get a wrench on when the time comes to tighten it. Another issue is the sanding disk. The keyway needs to be de-burred a little. Also, there is no way to accurately set the depth when first installed. The issue comes when mounting the table for the disk. Mine was not square with the disk. There were no instructions detailing how to square it. Save yourself some time. Don't tighten the disk key till last. Once you do everything by the instructions, you can square the table by the mounting bracket that holds it. The nuts are bolted to the base of the machine and are relatively easy to get to. Make sure, when mounting the table, to have the disk in pretty far. If not, it will prevent you from sliding the key to the table into the keyway guide. After the table is squared, GENTLY pry the disk AT THE CENTER, out towards your table. I set the gap at paper thin.
Once you get it all set up, this machine ROCKS! I haven't been able to bog it down. It has minimal vibration. The solid tables are a plus. It runs at lightening speed. I would love to have a variable speed motor on it. It takes a little getting used to because of the high rate of speed. Go easy.....or you will take off too much material.
The belts are readily available, although Grizzly does not offer many of the finer grits I need for making knives. Direct Abrasives USA have everything you need at great prices and you will be hard pressed to find better, quicker or more personal attention to their customers.
The belts are very easy to change and the quality of this machine would rank up there as "commercial" or "professional" given it's designed purpose. I really think the Grizzly sander is a tool that will last a lifetime and I look forward to using it. High quality for the price and I would recommend it to everyone. I would give it a "5" if it had variable speed. For now..... 4.9!
After using this grinder a few times I have a couple more observations.
The aluminum disk is wobbly.
There is some vibration in the machine (perhaps due to the disk.
It is severely under powered. A piece of one inch hardwood stock will bog it down fairly quick and a knife blank with minimal pressure will bog it down very quick.
One year update - I have had this sander for eleven months. I use it once or so a month. The vibration of the machine, along with the "wobble" or slack in the plastic contact wheels, make any "fine" or precision type sanding, almost impossible. It appears to me that the wheels are out of balance or out of round. They also jump side to side. This may not be a big deal to some, but for making a knife, it really creates problems at the ricasso. I bought a 1 x 30 harbor freight (not their cheapest one) that actually runs smoother! I would recommend buying the sears 2 x 42 if you are stuck with buying in this price range. Or wait until you can get a higher price machine.
Will update review in the future.
