A great belt and disc sander which will find a welcome in the larger hobby workshop. Just like our smaller sanders, the AWEBDS610 is suitable for all wood finishing applications, either with or across the grain. The 150mm wide belt gives plenty of sanding area and a solid stop is provided to hold the work firmly on the sanding belt. For sanding smaller components the 25mm sanding disc on the front of the machine is more suitable. The aluminium disc uses self-stick abrasive discs. The large sanding table, fitted to the sanding disc, tilts up to 45° and gives great support to the work. The table and mitre fence can be used together for angled sanding with a high degree of accuracy. The machine is powered by a quiet 800W induction motor controlled by a no-volt-release safety switch. A 62mm diameter dust extraction port is provided and the use of a fine dust extractor is recommended with a machine of this type. Supplied complete with mitre fence, dust extraction hoods and service tools. The floor stand is an optional extra.
|Belt Speed||520 m/min|

AWEBDS610 Belt & disc sanderA very capable machine at a good price. I already had a shop-built disc sander but needed a belt sander to use for re-shaping chisels, plane irons, etc. This machine does both functions well without taking up a lot of valuable bench space. It is heavy enough to stay put, but can still be moved around if necessary. The generous sized sanding plate lets you move the workpiece around, preventing scorching & increasing the belt life. The relatively slow belt speed also helps prevent scorching. Belt changing & adjustment are straightforward; once set, the belt stays in place. The sanding disc is a useful size & takes standard 10" self-adhesive discs. The sanding table is easy to adjust & locks firmly in place (I did have to pack one bracket off the machine body, in order for the mitre slot to run parallel to the disc). My only minor irritation is the safety cover over the switch - this can be awkward to "unlock" before starting up (I will probably end up removing it, either intentionally or by accident). That said, I find the machine a great asset. It is put to regular use shaping, flattening & rounding edges on wood & metal. I find it most useful with an 80g disc & 150g belt.

great little sanderI own the old model of this sander from 2002 and to be fair it's still going as good as it did then. I use my machine on an almost daily basis and the only issue I've found is the plastic parts breaking but apart from that it's great! Great piece of kit if you don't have room for individual belt and disc sanders also very powerful

Expected better at this priceBeen using this sander for some months now and satisfaction less than average. The vibration, from purchase, is very annoying at start-up and switch off. The disc is not square with the work-piece so intermittent contact whilst using the sanding disc unless using excess pressure. Belt is long enough for most jobs and the motor is quite powerful. I shall make a cover for the disc to protect my fingers from the disc which spins when the belt is in use and cannot be disconnected whilst using the belt.

Ok if you need a general sander, just another cloneI have the last "white" version of this tool pretty much the same in my eyes ..
