I just got this delivered to me and received it in fine condition. I removed everything and started putting the Disc Sanding Table in it's place, but it wouldn't fit. I checked it over and found that when it was made no one de-flashed the edges. I took a picture of the table, but this review doesn't allow pictures. I hand filed the edges and drilled out the bolt areas so it can be tilted. It then went together fine. Now working on the belt sander and checking the tracking I found that the owners manual on page 4 & 15 figure 10 are wrong. They have the tracking knob and the Belt Tensioning knob turned around. They have labeled H as the Tracking Knob when it is really the Belt Tensioning Knob and labeled I as the Belt Tensioning Knob when it is really the Tracking Knob. Just about ruined the belt when following their instructions on Adjusting Sanding Belt tracking. I got everything working correctly now and it seems to be working fine. I expected better from Grizzly than the simple problems I had setting this up, but all in all still happy with the product and will put it to good use in my shop.
I had a Grizzly combo 1 inch belt and 5 inch disc and was very satisfied with it until the switch started to malfunction. I was used to the belt being on the left side and the disc on the right and am having some trouble adjusting to this new(to me) arrangement. I am right handed and this seems to be left hand oriented. I haven&amp;#39;t had a chance to use it a great deal, but think it is constructed a little more durably than the previous one I had. The belt adjustment knobs are easier to use and the flexible light is helpful, though it should be a LED. The previous combo had a small work platform at the base of the belt sander to rest your work on which was very useful. My current one only has a bar which is of little use to me. I have taken it off and will fabricate a work rest platform instead.
The unit works well. It is noisier that I had expected, but hearing protection takes care of that. For small jobs, as a modeler, it is a fine unit.
