Questions & Answers

Can this be used stationary clamped in a work bench?

Asked by: Dajam
This sander can be used upside down as a stationary sander. Your particular setup will dictate the way you clamp it down to your workbench. I have seen several different ways to do it so there's not an exact answer as to what will work for your shop. I placed the sander near the edge of my work bench and clamped it down with normal clamps.

Can this sander be hooked up to a shop vac?

Can this sander be hooked up to a shop vac?
Asked by: Grunt
Yes, I connected my shop vac to the sander by using a small adapter. However, you will see that the dust collection bag works almost as effectively as connected a shop vac to the sander.

It has many great features and an overall feel of refinement: It is powerful, yet feels light and balanced in hand. The belt somehow stays centered and in position. I don't have to wrestle with this tool to get a job done. It is just totally superior to my previous sander (Porter Cable) and overall a pleasure to own and use.

I've only used the sander one week and it's already sounding like its gonna fall apart. I bought this cause I thought it would last but apparently I was mistaken. Maybe I just got a bad unit. I'd be willing to trade it for another one and give it another shot.
