Can it be used for light metal sanding?

Asked by Sandman August 5, 2019

Answers

Yes it can with the right grit paper on it. But you will still get sparks from the so-called sanding. And sparks in a contained vacuum system can still cause fire. This sander is better suited for wood only. If used in metal shop too much modification has to be done to make it fire safe. there are other better style sanders and grinders for metal uses.

Well mine has only (1) brake and that is located top dead center of disk guard. It is a friction brake. To stop disk from spinning, shut off the power and then slowly push down on leaver to slow spinning disk until it stops. Warning the disk can with power off still grab or bite so keep clear of the disk until it stops spinning.

I almost didn’t purchase this item because of the reviews on the internet even other name brands had poor reviews so I decided to take the chance on this one as as i have other delta tools and they perform great, All i can say is do not believe those reviews this is a great sander the disc is flat and rotates true and straight, the bed is flat and the miter guage slides in the slot with little effort it looks like delta updated the locking mechanism for the bed tilt as it is a double knob setup and locks on both ends securely at any angle, I have used this sander many times and am satisfied that it will perform well for a long time. Oh and yes the sand paper is a little hard to remove but if you use a heat gun and some adhesive remover it won’t take you to long to replace it with a little less aggressive paper.

Most all of my power equipment is Delta, This item just shows how their quality has degraded. To start I could have made the table flatter with my Milwaukee L grinder, the disc face plate ran out 1/4 inch and a corner of table was broken, shipping box was not damaged . It looks good and after I fixed the issues it preformed well. But why didn't it come that way, oh just like everything else MADE IN CHINA !!!!!!!!
