Well it finally got here, ordered in April, just came. They told me when I ordered it that it was out of stock and they would be getting their new order in August. I am glad I waited as I did not have one for 35 yrs. Whats a few months. I used their coupon and that paid for the shipping. It came packed on a 1/2” 5-core plywood with 4×4s under it. The sides and top were 1/2” 5-core plywood banded and two angle clips bolted on each edge. It was bolted to the bottom. No way it could be damaged. You need two men to put it on the stand. You need to put the stand together. Takes about two hrs. to assemble the whole sander. It is all they say it is. No noise or vibration. Hooked to my dust collecter, there is no dust. Checked everything the manual said to do. Right on! No adjusting. It works great. Ran a 10” oak board thru it and no problem. The ajustment is great. Crank wheel is right on top and adjustment gauge is on the front right under the wheel. It is my 15th major Grizzly machine. Some of them are 17
years old. Very few problems and the service is great. Repair parts came in 2 days. I think that is all the major tools I will need.

I’ve been wondering about this sander. I llike the price compared to the 10” Jet sander but I stopped by Grizzly in Springfield a few weeks ago and looked at the floor model. To me, it seemed kind of cheesy, but, I’m still interested in hearing how they hold up over a period of time. Looks aren’t everything, how it performs and holds up over time is the key. Glad to hear you like it so far. Keep us updated on it. I’m more than willing to give it another look when I get to buy a sander.

I’ve had mine almost a year now and absolutely love it. The one thing I don’t like is changing the paper. Would be better if there were a little more room on the right side of the drum. Anyway, just ordered the hook and loop kit which should be here any day. Should make it much easier.

Glad to hear that the Grizz has come thru again. I really like the equipment and the customer service. I just asked some questions this week. Got all the answers I needed PDQ.

I’ve been thinking of this one for a while. All I do would be 10” or less. I think I better look again and maybe….
