Very sturdy and a little heavy but great performance. Needed to drill 4 holes into the corners 1/4" to place lag bolts in to keep it on my bench top. it moves around a little but I use it quite a lot.

For a long time, I used this item in my woodworking shop. It did a great job using it every day to help build clocks, crosses, and other items. Even after the belt adjuster broke, I was still able to use the side sander for a lot of jobs and helped me to precision work. For the last 5 years, I haven't been able to use my woodworking shop because of heart and lung problems. I also purchased a drill press and a 10 " table saw which are still working well except other people are using them in my workshop. .
This is a light duty, hobby/home shop grinder. It is cheaply made with a small motor but that's why it doen't cost much. If the unit seems really underpowered or doesn't come up to speed, then something is likely binding, check it out and find the problem. If the motor stops when you try and use the unit, don't push so hard. My biggest complaint is that is comes with only one work table and I am too lazy to unbolt the work table and move it to the disk grinder and so I tend to only use the belt. One day I will make another table. I would recomend this unit for light use.
Standing outside Sears waiting for the store to open so I can return this piece of junk. In the first use couldn't even get the tool up to speed then after some loud clunking noise it started to work only to find pieces of plastic and a screw laying under the machine. The whole bottom smells like it was on fire. Craftsman tools have really lost something. They used to be top notch.
It's sad that everything is made of plastic these days. The machine works fine for now, but only time will tell. I just wished that these companies would go back to the old ways and start making quality products out of metal, not plastic. I guess it's the only way foreign countries and companies can make their profits off of us. It breaks my heart to know craftsman products such as these are mostly plastic now.
If you are looking at this model, please look elsewhere. Very weak motor and very cheap made. Actually thought I had ordered a 6 x 48 sander. Checked my records and I made a mistake. Not worth the hassele to return. MY ADVICE: DO NOT PURCHASE. Probably will purchase a larger belt sander
I ordered this sander on sale. It was my first bench belt sander. Even without any prior experience with this type of product I could tell right away it was poorly made. The base was constructed of sheet metal so that when you picked it up the edges of the sheet metal would dig into your hands. It was also loud and when I initially started it the belt was stuck so that it didn't come up to speed. I found out that the belt was angled too far down. If angled too far down the belt wouldn't even move with the motor on. It should have had a stop or something to prevent this. I ended up returning and bought a Grizzly with a cast iron base. The Grizzly is much better.
