Porter Cable 4×8 Belt/Disc Sander Unboxing and Review

This is my Fathers Day Gift that I finally got around to opening. I think this will suit my needs much better than the old Delta Belt/Disc Sander that I got from a friend last year. That Delta got a lot of use and served me well, but with as much as I’m using the sander it could be justified if it will do what I need quicker.

Hey, good video. I’m most likely going to buy this model at some point in time for making chairs. But next time you sand with the disc sander, sand on the right hand side of it so The work piece doesn’t jump around 😉

Would this be good for knife making?

Tyler Sureddin says:

Would you say that the tool rests on this grinder are firm and stable?

bigtruck147 says:

I have this same sander and the only 2 issues I have with it is that the table on the belt, the distance is almost to far and sometimes that can be a great inconvenience. The other is that both tables seam to have some play in them even when tightened down. They can be off as much as 4 degrees so I constantly have to recheck for square. Other than those inconveniences I really like it.

Tim Draper says:

how do u change the belt?

Steve Ramsey says:

I’m a little confused by the vertical arrangement with the fence/table in the middle of the belt. Is it possible to lay the belt flat? I need to flat-sand longer parts…
