Quite some eyars ago I bought a Delta DS from a friend at a really good price, even though I had no idea what I would use it for. Over the years it became a heavily used tool as I learned just how useful it was. I sold it maybe 5 years ago and recently realized how much I missed having one…so I bought a Supermax. It’s like being reunited with an old friend. Do be aware, you need a really good DC system to capture the dust, these things produce mountains of very fine dust. Also, my experience says these are not finish sanding machines. They do leave scratches that you will have to remove with an ROS or whatever your choice is. I had nothign but problems sanding on the DS with anything finer than 150, so I quit buying the fine grit belts and don’t run any soft wood through it. The belts are too expensive to just clog up and throw away.
