I got this wunderfull “Hegner” discsander. My fionce has bought it from our kids cause i turn 40 next month.

It came in a big box and and she got no were to hide so they gave it to before time:)

I tested it with a hard piece of palisander and it just grind it away like a knife cuts butter on a warm summerday :D

German quality never fails!

Just so excited and want to share it :)

Congratulations, that is one beautiful machine, and it is one of the few that offers a hook & loop design
for the discs, which makes it real easy to change grits of sandpaper for various jobs. Hope you have
lots of fun using it. Happy early birthday also, they told me that 40 was not the end of the world, but
you could see it from there, I am still looking.

That thing has some pretty good looks to it to go along with that German quality….. almost too good looking to use.

Mein Deutsch ist schlecht, aber es macht Spaß, zu versuchen. Ich mochte sehr die Schule Dick Website. I have always wondered why there are so few German woodworkers on Lumberjocks. I felt sure that there would be Germans that would do woodworking as a hobby. There are several places like Dick in the US also, Arrowmont and Campbell Schools for example. One day I would like to go and learn about marquetry.

I also notice that on everything is added the VAT.
