Functional but could be better

The machine functions as it should and will meet the requirements of it's intended use, that being light duty model making etc. However there are two niggling problems that were evident right out of the box. The quality and fitment accuracy of the die cast aluminium parts could and should be improved. I could not get the disc sander table to fit to the disc shroud without dressing the inside mating surfaces with a file and emery paper. Also one of the table locking levers came apart whilst installing, upon close inspection the plastic toothed adjuster had split and come away from the adjustment screw shaft. To get over this I assembled the table using M6 socket head screws instead, I may try to obtain better quality adjustment levers elsewhere. Also the user manual refers to the tables and sanding disc as being made of cast iron, this however is not the case, all of the load bearing parts are made of die cast aluminium. I suppose that cast iron would be too much to expect of a product in this price range, but why the misrepresentation in the manual? I have purchased numerous items from China and It seems to me that anything which is not made from plastic is boasted as being of cast iron no matter what the actual metal is. Strange?

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.
