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.
Thank you for the information regarding the manual. I have forwarded it to our Tech Writing Department so it can be corrected.
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.
Bought this to square pen blanks. I also use it to smooth/even out and or correct mishaps that occur when i use scroll/band saw. Works great for my needs
This item was part of package of tools and accessories purchased as gifts for one of my sons college graduation. He's just getting into woodworking and these make great introductory tools for his interests. He's very happy with the quality of tools.
