4x6 sander Harbor Freight belt disk combo

MINDLESS BORING:4x6 sander Harbor Freight central machinery belt and disk sander combo. I got this 4x6 sander from a Harbor Freight on sale. The sander has a tilting belt part and a built in disk sander with sliding protractor on a bevel table. This unit model 97181 has a 3/4 hp motor and cast iron machine base weighing near 40 lbs i thought was good.

4x6 sander Harbor Freight 97181 belt and disk sander combo review The lay out and design of the combo belt sander lends it self well to motor and drive modifications. If the sander motor should fail, the arraignment of the drive would allow my bench grinder to power the sander for a compact sanding, and tool bit sharpening station.
This 4x6 sander is a great deal for the money imho, for the reasons shown in the video and If my thinking is near correct many Chinese made machine tools will be going up in price, such as the hf carbide grinder that is grizzly item now. thnx 4 watch n. = SHARE ROCKNTV1
