Pros : Price Good for a small work space for a hobbyist, especially if you don't have plumbing available in your work area.
Cons : Can take a couple of tries to get used to changing the belt and adjusting it properly. Would be nice if the bottom plastic casing was slightly larger which would have made this so much easier. Again, the size out of the bottom of it makes it a bit more difficult to clean out any gunk.
Other Thoughts : Yes, it's noisy but I expected that. I don't find that I get sopping wet which others have commented on. The other couple of wet belt Sanders I've used at other places have got me wetter than this one. I've contacted the company a couple of times with question or to have them send out a number of belts to me in the mail and have been very pleased with their customer service. I've had this for almost 2 years and I've had no problem using it for half an hour or so at a time.

  •   Dont buy.

Pros : Inexpensive
Cons : Bearing is not sealed. Drums are plastic and do not spin accurately. Grit flies up into bearings.
Other Thoughts : This sanders bearings and drums did not work after only 1 month of operation. Had to send it back to CA. for repair. Labor, parts and shipping both ways cost more than the sander! Tech rep from Gryphon said this is a hobby tool only, but he couldn't tell me how often you could use it as a hobby. Disappointed and has cost too much.

  •   disappointed.
By on
Pros : Good price, but you get what you pay for.
Cons : Engine started smoking after 20 minutes of light use, it is very difficult to adjust the top wheel so the belts stay put, and it only takes less than a second for a belt to slide to the left and jam the machine or slide to the right and tear the belt. Once I finally did get it adjusted, it was very difficult to change the belts because of the bottom tray (attached), and I had to spend 40 minutes re-adjusting it every single belt change (with risk of ruining more belts.) The cooling system is also pretty crappy-the sponge often gets sucked up and stuck in the top and you constantly have to re-adjust it.
Other Thoughts : This product might be good for a hobbyist who won't use it very often at all and rarely changes belts, but for anyone who uses it regularly, save yourself time and money and just buy a higher quality one from the start.

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
