I have a small CNC shop for wood and plastic in Upstate NY, www.Upstatecnc.com and have been using your equipment pretty much full time for many, many years. I am glad to tell you that out of the 11 Grizzly machines we use, ALL 11 are holding up really well and I will buy more Grizzly equipment without hesitation in the future. One of the products that we make full time requires us to resaw exotic hardwoods, and then sand them to dimension, before finally putting them on one of our two CNC Routers for final production. A few years back we purchased a G0513X bandsaw, and G1066R drum sander. I am writing to tell you that as I was just using both of them, I realized how much time, and ultimately money Grizzly has made us with these particular products. The machines have paid for themselves many times over, and I can honestly say that we would not be making this product, which turned out to be a major part of the business if we hadn't bought your equipment.
I just want to say Thank You for helping my small business be successful, and I look forward to getting just what I need at Grizzly in the years to come.
I ripped the paper on the first board, thought I was being careful not trying to take too much off at once, but one turn is far to much. $500 dollar premium seemed like a lot for variable speed, but we will see
I really like how I can use the front drum can be used for 60 grit paper and the back drum for 120 grit paper and have an almost finished work.\r\nThere is plenty of power for the sander and the for the conveyer belt and the belt holds carries the wood firmly thru the sanding process. It is VERY easy to change the paper so if you wanted to change the grit to 180 and the back to 220 you would have a finished board or half of a table top very easily.\r\n\r\nA few things I would like to have for the sander is to have in-feed and out-feed tables that can be raised and lowered to conserve space and the others is to have the power switch to be places where ever the individual would like to have it instead of where it is placed now under the conveyer belt on the bottom left.\r\n\r\nLast if you have to have a Mobil shop like mine you will need the D2058A Super Heavy-Duty Mobile Base which makes it easy to move around\r\n\r\nA few things I would like to have with it is in-feed and out-feed tables that would also fold down to conserve space and a power switch that can be adjusted wherever it is handy for the person using it.\r\n\r\nLast is if you have to move it around to allow vehicles access to the shop get the nice shop fox roll around base with it too.
