Poor build quality

Received today and my initial thoughts are that this tool leaves a lot to be desired in both the build quality and components used. I am also disappointed with Axminster, because obviously they cannot be bothered to act on the feedback of people who have already bought this tool. For OVER FOUR YEARS customers have been complaining and having problems with the disc table lock handles, which Axminster have done nothing at all to remedy. Isn’t that the point of customer feedback? Like others, one of my locking handle failed after 2 turns! I don't hold out much hope for the longevity of the other handle or the replacement handle that Axminster will be sending out to me! I should not really have to go out to market to for replacements handles on a new piece of equipment, particularly one that carries the Axminster name. Other problems encountered were 1)The support bracket for the belt sander being installed askew making it impossible to fit the belt sander table. 2) Very tight fit to install the disc sander table. Carefully tapping with a soft head hammer enabled the table to be seated.

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?

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.

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.
