Excellent machine.

Delivery was fast, machine well packaged. Assembled in minutes, adjustments were as easy as one would expect.
The job it does is excellent, I know it's a hobby standard machine, but with some TLC it will last year's and is as good as machines costing twice or three times as much. An excellent buy.

Avoid at all costs

When it arrived the belt was so tight the motor wouldn't turn, as the spring tensioner would not function making the belt too tight. This was because the casting for the tensioner spring was binding on the pulley wheel.. I resolved this with careful removal of the over casting with a grinder. I've used it three times probably a total of twenty minutes, now there is a loud screeching noise from one of the pulley bearings.

adequate but room for improvement

I bought this model for precision sanding of relatively small parts and whilst the core functions work well - disc sander and belt sander - the manufacturing quality could be a lot better. On the plus side, the belt and disc can be sufficiently adjusted to get their tables within a degree (plus or minus) to 90 degrees but this is time consuming and needs to be checked every time you use it. What is unacceptable is the quality of the adjustable clamping handles used to secure the tables in place. One of the handles on the belt table stripped the teeth on its plastic shaft while I was assembling the machine. I have subsequently replaced them with aftermarket items from Boneham and Turner, which are excellent - you only have to look at them to see how much better they are. I haven't given this machine a full work out yet so it remains to be seen whether it will be sufficiently precise for my needs. If it is, then it's good value for money - even after replacing the adjustable clamping handles; if not it will be a costly mistake.

Not so bad for the price

The finition is a bit light. You will have to adjust it yourself for a convenient use, maybe with a file like me or with the vice. For exemple the sanding belt's bracket is not squared.
But once the tool is tuned, it delivers a correct job.
The dust extraction is not a realm.
A regret : the sanding disk is to be glued, not attached with Velcro.
Supplied with a pair of mounted 80G sanding belt and sanding disk.
As far I know, the cheapest bench on the market.

Not as good as the original

This updated model is an improvement on the original model. It is a good deal quieter than the original, however while performance, etc., is about the same there is one serious failing and that is in the containment of the dust created in use.
The original AW130BD contains most dust under extraction and works well, this new model AW130BD2 has so many gaps in the belt and disc housings that dust gets everywhere even under solo extraction.
I have both models mounted side by side for convenience, one with coarse belt and disc and the other with fine belt and disc.
I have had to resort to sticking small lengths of foam inside the housings to minimise the blow out of dust through the gaps and give the extractor a better chance.
All my machines are Axminster but this one has failed to meet the mark set by the original, not a good replacement the manufacturers need to tighten up their tolerances by a few millimetres.
