I make hundreds of small cedar jewelry boxes a year and do a LOT of sanding. I once used the “baby drum sander” from Grizzly but had to repair it too much. Tossed it. I now have two harbor freight 8”x48” stationary belt sanders. I have them set up with two different grits. I paid less than $170 for the first one in 2010 and still use it every day. Dust collection took some ingenuity but it works for me.
