The 6in disc platform is aluminum and relatively sturdy. ( relative to the HF, as that was the unit I replaced) It sits at almost 90 to the disc, but you'll have to verify if you want a full 90. the miter gage is plastic and the measurement marks are on a sticker. This is OKAY, but I really don't plan on needing the miter gage for any sort of accurate sanding.
the dust collector on the back I don't use, but its a nice feature for those who do want a vacuum system installed.
I recommend buying this unit for the small time hobbyist such as myself where you may need to do some prolonged medium sanding, but IF you really need a power house that is going to do some heavy sanding, this is not the unit for you.
Now for the functional review - the product works as expected - most of the product is well made, but the upper part is made of plastic (which was broken on the first one delivered). I only have one main complaint - the scoop that collects dust during operation prevents sanding longer pieces - for me, this is a big problem - in another day or two, I'll probably cut this down (it's one of the plastic parts) so that I can run longer pieces, but I expect that will reduce the dust collection function.
The pros of the sander include its heavy weight build and easy on off switch. Its belt sander has an excellent platform and sands evenly across all surfaces. It seems well built and is exactly what we wanted for light to medium use on soft grain wood like pine and fir. The only drawback I noted was if you place heavy material on it and push down hard in an effort to remove more material you can stall the sanding belt. It was easy to see this when my 14 year old was using it and I quickly showed him how to avoid putting so much weight on the belt. Overall I would say this is a great value for the money and it seems well built enough to last for many years of daily service in our shop

Has done this a few times. Now it won't start at all, motor is and smells hot. Piece of junk.
