Masterforce 6x9 combo belt/disk sander.

Picked up this sucker yesteday and am happy so far. I wish it were a little slower speed, but it seems to be a nice buy.

Hell yea. That's real similar to the one I have. But mine is a lesser brand. I use it to sand poly parts to a specific height. And the disc on the side to touch up the lathe tooling. If your wanting a slower speed, you might try a rehostat. I have used them in the past for a 1/2 horse blower. And it worked well.

Yeah, but a rheostat decreases speed by reducing power. I dont want it to reduce power.

True. But it's way cheaper than say a vfd lol. I was at harbor freight yesterday and they had 2 horizontal band saws. Not too cheap looking.

Yeah i knew you couldnt stay away from that pink!

do you have access to. A Northern Tool? If so get the Klutch 5x7 bandsaw. Same as HF but a badass warranty plan.

I was thinking more along the lines of a pulley change.
