    Very nice machine.., November 6, 2004

    This review is from: Shop Fox W1676 6-Inch by 10-Inch Combination Sander (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I had originally purchased the Jet 707597K (separate review) but had to return it and replaced it with the Shop Fox G4790. This is a nice machine. Not quite the fit and finish of the Jet, but very nice regardless. It has a smaller footprint than the Jet and sits a little lower, unless you mount it on a mobile base. I passed on the mobile base offered with the machine, because it increased the footprint so much. This is one of the few machines in my shop not mounted on wheels. It has it’s designated corner and probably will remain there. If I do need to make it mobile I will mount some Grizzly 3″ locking casters to the base, keeping the footprint small.

    I have run hose from the two 2″ dust ports to a Y fitting that has a 4″ connector, this seems to work very well. Very little dust escapes and what does my ceiling mounted air filter handles easily.

    What I really like about this machine is that you are able to remove the end guard from the belt, stand the belt sander up and use the end to sand radius. I use this feature a lot. Couldn’t do it with the Jet.

    The motor is strong and the machine runs quietly, and tracking is very easy and stays put. I plan in the future to run several 220 circuits into my shop, as I have several machines that can run 110/220, including this one.

    The cabinet is a handy item, lots of room to store belts, tables, miter gauge etc.

    Changing belts, something I do a lot of, is fairly easy and quick. Especially after modifying the dust collector for the belt. This process was a little more complicated on the Jet.

    All things considered, I am very pleased with this machine. It does a nice job replacing my old 4×36 Craftsman. I would recommend the Shop Fox to anyone needing a stationary sanding station.

    This review is from: Shop Fox W1676 6-Inch by 10-Inch Combination Sander (Tools & Home Improvement)

    Had been saving for a Jet, but another reviewer thankfully pointed out that the cover for the radius couldn’t be removed and pointed to the Shop Fox as the alternative of his choice. This is important as I use it a great deal.

    The sander is heavy duty and the stand provides a stable base, ample storage and a small footprint. It assembled well, instructions were decent and it was running in a short time. This Shop Fox adjusts easily and has plenty of power – haven’t seen a hint of bogging down yet. I also didn’t really think that the extra inch in the disc sander (10″) from the norm (9″) would be noticeable, but it is, and appreciated. The tracking is something I figured would take awhile and counted on it. However, it took no longer than to turn the knob and steer the belt to the center of which it stayed under heavy sanding. I also appreciate the tension release which will make it a snap to change belts, especially since I don’t have to remove a radius guide, unless I want it there.

    If there is anything to complain about, it is that it sits a little high for my taste, but I’ll get used to that. The other thing is that is not as quiet as my previous sander. Obviously something I’ll learn to live with, but was a little surprised by it. Guess it’s the comprimise for the power.

    My friend has a Jet and it is certainly a nice sanding station with a bit better fit and finish, but I’m not dissapointed in this and would make the same decision if I had it to do over.

    This sander is great. The fit and finish leave something to be desired but I am very satisfied with the operation of the sander. Very simple to assemble and the tracking was very eaisy to adjust. I also love the stand which arrived seperately, it is well constructed and has a on off switch on the side of it. You can take the guard at the top of the belt off to use that end to sand on a inside radius which I think is a great plus. The belts are very easy to change. This is very heavy so wheels on the cabinet would be helpful, I intend to purchase wheels. As far as I can tell this is a great product!!
