    Ok lots of sanding to do

    So we have this job and all of these need to be sanded.
    Now there is just over 4000 LF of 6 inch v match/ double bead sitting there.

    Good job Chuck, I got a line on a 22/44 that should go for 400-500 but thats a future gloat.

    Sneaky gloat. Congrats. A sander would be soooo nice to have.

    that made alot of sense chuck, it will make the day job go much faster and then when that is done you got a new tool for your own use.

    Way to go Chuck nice stealth gloat. Good pick up on the chair. You gonna recover that?

    I dont know much about wide belt sanders but this has got to be a big vote in favor of that machine for you to buy it or was it just at the right price?
    cheers

    Been looking at getting one of those one day. I can see a world of time saving. I just need a job as big as yours to justify the purchase to the wife.
