    Wowsers! That's bigger than the huge one I saw at the framing shop a while back. Are you gonna make an offer in it? (BTW Mohammad, I checked with the framing shop. They aren't interested in selling any of their old machines.)

    Vaughn, I think I will keep looking for a 40" one. Thanks for inquiring about the sander at the framing shop.

    The same guy is also selling a huge osc spindle sander.

    Man---Just what I need to get ready for the next box swap!!!

    Actually it is not practical. I think it would sink right down through the floor of my garage/shop.

    Enjoy,

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    That is impressive, especially being double sided

    I'll bet you could stick a 4x4 into that thing and not bog it down a bit

    It is impressive, but I'll see your massive disc sander and raise you a finger slicer......

    Ok Stu, I am out. You win.

    How big is the disc on that? Well, the price is pretty good.
