    Home Depot Canada finally got the message so i obliged :)

    Been wanting one of those rigid belt edge osc sanders for the longest time.
    But the frugal stubborn half of me just would not pay $250 for something i can get in the USA for $199.00 and dont forget we pay 13% add on hst tax so when they finally came to the party which i happened to spot yesterday while picking up some ply to insulate my temp shop, i popped and got this puppy. Here is the proof
    Even got missus blessings she is just happy to have me not complaining about HD to her .

    I've never had a stationary belt sander, report back on usage

    ryan, stationary belt sanders are very popular in poland. all you need worry about is keeping your fingers out of the way when pushing the wood against the stationary belt.

    So what did you pay for it?

    I paid $250 (plus tax, of course) for mine a few years ago and consider it to be well worth the price.

    If I waited for US prices before I bought an item, I would hardly ever buy anything. Get used to it.

    Since having a stationary belt sander my portable belt sanders have become dust collectors (But not good enough Dust Collectors to run ducting to.). I considered myself good with portable belt sanders. I had enough control that I never hesitated to bring a portable down on to finished piece of wood. That said, I will say I prefer the stationary sander many times over above the portable.

    Bye, Bye, Glenn just arrived.


    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    I'd like to get one some day myself...other things have just gotten in the way.
    So what's the "next item on the shopping list"? Jim.
