Each time I change the sandpaper I have a dickens of a time doing it. I think the clamps should be switched to the opposite side from where they are with the pin clamp on the left side so it is easier to access. There should also be a way to keep the drum from rolling while working with the clamps. It is very difficult to change the paper. (For me at least)
Purchased the sander about three months ago and have been pleased with its performance. I considered a few of the bench-top models Griz offers, but because we simply don't have time to fool with the feed motor problems a number of the reviews discussed, we opted for this simple, more straight forward model and are pleased that we did. It does a remarkable job on the cabinetry we produce, is easy to operate and simple to maintain. Don't believe the comments on the belts being hard to change - just follow the directions and have a little patience - unless you're going through more than one day, its really not an issue. As mentioned, the machine is simple and easy to operate - not a lot of stupid bells and whistles - and can be easily rolled out of the way when not in use. It's not our first Griz machine and won't be our last - we love the sound quality, competitive price and great service that they provide.
