Good little sander

Although I haven't had this sander very long, I think it is a good little sander.
I gave it 4 stars for quality, because on the whole I think it is well made in general. Maybe they could get rid of the plastic, and make metal pressings.
5 stars for value, because it is within range of most other 1 inch belt sanders plus Its mostly made of metal.
3 stars for features as I think there are things they could do to upgrade this little sander.
Maybe one thing they could put onto this little machine is a speed controller, just to make it easier to control sanding the smaller items.

But in general, i think this is a nice little belt sander for anyone workshop.

2 tools in 1 and Great Value for Money

I purchased this sander specifically for its compact size and dual functionality. After reading the comments above, I can honestly say that mine was in great condition when I received it and has worked perfectly since day one. I was surprised how good the dust extraction was too, once hooked up to a shop vac there are very little air bourn particles.

In short, it has proved invaluable in my small workshop and provided me with great value for money, considering the amount of use I have gout out of it over the last year. I have no doubt that it will last for many more years to come.

Bad Bad Bad

I think that my opening title says it all.
I am hugely disappointed with this piece of machinery.
From unpacking to assembly it is a list of poor quality manufacturing and damage ( I presume in transit)
Now in fairness I am not looking for a return or refund as I have had this machine since Oct 17 and have only now May 18 opened the box to use it. In the interim it has sat on a shelf in my garage.
1. removed from packaging and found both of the bottom flanges, into which the feet go, were bent up quite badly obviously due to the box being dropped. These I have straightened with some cosmetic damage and loss of paint.
2. the backing plate for the belt sander was badly skewed and the thin protection plate under the table was bent out of shape requiring work.
3. the disc mounting table needed filing to allow it to fit and one of the the locator pin holes need elongating to allow the lock handle to screw in to its hole.
4. neither of the lock handles survived the installation process, they are just rubbish and am not holding out hope for the belt sander bolt either. I will be looking into an alternative solution for this as I doubt Axminster would supply anything other than the trash supplied with this machine.
In summary I find it fairly shocking that Axminster would put their name to this machine as it is a slur on their reputation. I have purchased allsorts of things from them (I am a professional tradesman) and have never had any reason for complaint, until now.
In my honest opinion if i knew then what I know now I would buy a different machine.

Good value for money

Delivered within 22hrs of being ordered, excellent service. Everything went according to plan until tightening up M6 clamping lever, it just went round and round, would not tighten, or undo. Had to dis assemble lever and grip with pliers. Closer inspection showed the plastic sleeve had split. The plastic and shaft were drilled and pinned and a small amount of super glue added. Ten minutes and we were up and running again.
Changing the belt to a finer grit also prooved a problem as the main bolt that holds the tracking mechanism / belt tensioner had been over tightened. Fortunately I had a large Allen key that fit, problem solved.
I have given it a brief trial run and I think it should do every thing I will require of it. A good little machine.

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?
