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

A good idea but agree it seems to cost.

I've used a Logan Framing Sander for several years. It's a similar idea, a heavy hand-powered sanding disk. It doesn't have the great mitre gauge for cutting precise angles that this has, but it has a much larger sanding disk.. It is just as expensive, though.

George,

You're a bit scary. How did you know I was thinking that?

Manual powered, isn't that an oxymoron?

I am not sure I could operate this thing. I am not as coordinated as in the young non-prescription days.

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

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.

If you put a motor in it and cut the price in half I might be interested.

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!!!

There's a lot to be said for a hand powered sander. You get much more control, making it useful for styrene as well as wood and plaster. 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.

I'm curious here; does the round turning sander really do a better job than a "True Sanders" back forth sanding?

It's only make-believe

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.)
