I had this on my wish list and my wife purchased this for my birthday and I was not disappointed after opening up the box and putting it up on my workbench. 

6 x 9 Disc Sander is a Woodshop Essential

The disk sander is great for doing precise sanding and for sharpening your wood tools, shaping parts for your projects and cleaning burrs and such. .  The work table attatchment is extremely stable and sturdy and it is adjustable from 90 to 45 degrees. the work table has a miter slot and a miter guage to work with. This work table easily is attatched to either the sanding disk station or the belt sanding station.. This sander weighs approx 88 pounds and needs a solid work surface to operate off of. Eventhough, this unit has rubber feet to limit vibration and to keep from sliding around, I would recommend to secure the sander to your work surface by bolting it down.This sander sports a hefty 3/4HP motor and has plenty of power for just about any of your shop sanding needs. 

Changing the belts and disks is very easy and quick to do. The belt tracking is simple to use and requires no tools. the belt station can be operated horizontally or vertically and at various stops in between. I also recommend using a cleaning stick to help keep your disks and belts clean and lasting longer. There is a dust port to attatch your shop vac to to help limit dust around your work area. 

I have only had this bench top sander for a short time, but I have used it quite a bit already and was able to shape several parts for my current project and to clean up some other items that I have been working on. This saved me a lot of time from how I had to do this same work before. I plan on making me a work station soley for my new bench sander with rollers to be able to move around the shop as needed. 

My only complaints that I have found so far is that if you mount the sander, attatching the miter table to the back of the belt oprtion of the sander is a little hard to reach and if you need to use the end of the belt for contour sanding, you will need access to 3 different sides of your sander. Most work benches, this might be a problem to be able to access 3-sides of your sander with a adequate work area. so mounting to your work bench may limit your access to parts of the sander. I think building my mobile work station will solve this issue for me in my shop. This is my only negative for this sander.

I will update my review as I put more hours on the unit, but for the moment, I give my birthday gift  high marks and would have no issues recommending this unit to my friends or anyone in the market for a hefty bench top sander.

I bought this table top model believing it would handle almost everything possible that I intend to work on as related to sanding projects. I've used it 3 times; first two, very light duty work and really didn't need this big machine. The 3rd time, I used it for light work again, applying absolutely no pressure on the motor or belts. It burned out, I suppose the capacitor or motor, or whatever. What a complete disappointment. Sears simply said that I'd have to pay for its repair at their repair department because it only carries a 2 month warranty. I suggest that you don't get this machine! Sorry Sears, I have liked almost everything else you have to offer - not this time, nor did I appreciate having to pay for a repair that I don't feel responsible for in creating. Shame on the cheap motor that Sears used for this model.

Works great

Used it for 3 weeks now, every day. It's on most of the time and makes fast work of all my project edges.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Similar problems and lack of replacement parts

I had a similar problem with the sander bogging down under a fairly light load-had to have the motor AND the capacitor replaced. Weird thing is I wanted to get a second table, so I wouldn't have to pull the one if I wanted to use it on the belt sander part-most of these parts are no longer available! Found additional table: Unit is made by (or also made for) POWETEC Pro Model BD6900. It is exact duplicate (except some of the knobs are red instead of black. Table is an exact fit, as I believe all the other parts are too.

Not as good as it looks

This machine is built sturdily. I have used it intermittently for light work over a period of about a year and didn't even wear out the original sanding belt. The thing burned up on me. Very disappointed. It's pathetic that the sanding belt lasted longer than the machine.

Junk machine

I bought this machine used once burned up. Got the run around about replace or fix it. They finely replaced and its no better. Just junk might be better as anchor for your boat.
