Anybody seen this yet. Neat idea, but a bit pricey.

I'll probably make one sometime down the road when I get into doing some buildings for the quarry line I'm building. Was thinking how it could be made universal by being able to change the sanding disk from 5" to 10" and back again.

Bernd, maybe a non-powered / powered version would be handy.
SAFN SAAP Posted - 06/09/2019 : 04:33:45 AM
I contacted them and they kindly responded in stating that they have no intention of making a 10" at this time. I have the MicroMark combination disc/belt sander, new, and I'm not thrilled with it. I may sell it. I will probably get this 5" and also a Proxxon 10" and be done with it.

I went back and studied the pictures a bit closer. I can see why the price is were it's at. There's quite a bit of precise work that went into making that. Ya, I could make one out of aluminum pieces I've got laying around for cheap, even got some bearings that didn't cost me anything, but it's the hourly pay that gets you.

I wonder if it really is any better than the Harbor Freight belt/disc sander that cost half or less as much?
Not high dollar but has worked for me for longer than I care to remember.
Frank Palmer Posted - 06/08/2019 : 7:20:16 PM
Bernd I can't wait to see your version. The price is off the chart for a manual sander, oops my bad. It's from Fast Tracks why would it be reasonably priced.
deemery Posted - 06/08/2019 : 3:51:27 PM
Yeah, if I take the metal fence off of my Logan sander, I can do a much larger area. Of course, I have to hold things carefully, since part of the disk wants to pick up the work, while the other part pushes it down. But that's one advantage of hand cranking, you can feel that and control the speed.

At least with my Logan sander, I can crank it pretty fast for quick sanding, the heavy steel disk can build up a lot of inertia. I do agree with the criticism that 5" isn't quite as useful as a larger disk. One advantage of a 5" disk is that replacement sanding disks are cheap and easy to get.

Aw, I wasn't trying to criticize. That little sander is awesome! I really like it. I have a 10" MicroMark Sander I need to replace. I don't like the shelf method they have because it doesn't hold 90* true. I use the sander to make sure the sides of my cars are flush smooth. 5" sanders cannot do larger cars.

I emailed them and asked if they might do a 10" version, but now that I think of it, that might be counter productive. Why have a 5 if you have 10?

I may get one. It looks and seems to perform just right and thankful that such tools exist.

I have both. The crank sander is definitely better for removing more material with as much control as a True Sander. I think it works faster. Neither True Sander nor Logan Framing Sander have a good fence for doing anything other than right angles (but the Framing Sander also has support for 45 and 22 1/2 angles, I think. The fence is kinda clumsy, and I'm not quite sure how accurate it is.)

I guess they saw the light at the end of the tunnel. After all you can't buy the Tru-Sander after August this year from NWSL!!!
Tyson Rayles Posted - 06/08/2019 : 08:31:06 AM
If you put a motor in it and cut the price in half I might be interested.
SAFN SAAP Posted - 06/08/2019 : 04:57:24 AM
I really like the looks of this machine. I just would have liked to have seen a bigger disk, like 10" for the sake of sanding wooden car frames. 5" is too small for that. So now you have to have both a 10" like the Proxxon and this one. Seems counter productive.

Good old Manual Labor, replaced by a robot!

You get Manual to turn the crank while you hold the wood against the sanding disk.
