Buyer Beware…

Check the motor plate, to determine how old the machine is. Check the drive-belt (pulls the wood through the sander); if this is worn, you’ll need to replace it (the wood will simply slip ahead of the drum, rather than be pulled through). Also, check to see if table level adjustments are possible. On the original machines, there was no adjustment to ensure the table is parallel to the sanding drum – and this makes it difficult to get an even cut.
