    Bryan, nice shop. I love your stroke sander. I took a look at your web site, you do some beautiful work!

    Nice shop!

    Question if I may, why would you want a stroke sander say if you have a drum or wide belt or would you? I have seen a few stroke sanders in shops that have drums and wide belts and would think the stroke sander would or could do the job?

    What horsepower is the Delta feeder and what hp is the Green one (Grizzly, Woodtek, or General or what?)? Replacement 3 wheel to 4 wheel for the one on the shaper?

    Here are some pics of the 1989 pamphelet I got from the dealer that you may find interesting.
    Thanks for the comments!
    Yeah I didn't expect the manual would be much. I kinda like to have them though for completeness and for the parts list if there is one. Thanks for the attachments.

    Any chance you have photo's of the special wood bar and spring bar type pad thing?

    I sand small parts on the platten under the top belt cover, works good. I plan to make a 90* fence and end stop for that one of these days.

    I bought the sander back in 89. I got a special deal ( I'm a sucker for deals!!!!) on it from my local WW store, to sand RP doors. I had a little homemade one, but wanted something better! Quickly found out it didn't do that well, that sometimes the belt would catch the inside stile and quicklly cut a groove in it. I recently bought an off shore 25" drum, but sure wish I could afford a better made unit.

    Delta feeder is a 1/6th HP, bought back in 87 when I got my 1st shaper. It needs a replacement base or welding job. Put new rubber on it. Hope to use it with the router table. The big green General is a 1 hp. It had only 2 hrs use, only 2 years old, got it for $500 . 6 hour road trip to get it a couple of weeks ago! It's as long as the shaper table!

    Hey Bryan,

    How does that PC vacuum compare to the Dewalt one?

    Where do you store lumber? Or do you buy as needed?

    That model Dewalt isn't made anymore, and it's used.I picked it up at Woodcraft in Sterling Heights, Michigan for a $100. It's a BIG vac with large wheels, well built with a quiet motor and a cloth filter like a central vac, but no auto start. The PC has an auto start plug, I use it at my work bench with a fine dust bag ( shop vac brand ), to trap sanding dust from the ROS or chips from the Lamello. Got a good price on it from a fellow trying to sell off tools won in a lottery!
    I usually buy lumber as I need it, stored on the floor behind the table saw. Right now in that area behind the saw is 700 ft of pine trim I made ( circa 1890 style ) waiting to be delivered.
