I've been eyeing this Microlux 10" Disk Sander in the Micro-Mark catalog for a long time. It was
very expensive but seemed to have every feature I learned that was important. But I could never justify the
I did some searching on the internet for SLOW 10" and 12" disk sanders and basically what I came up
with were these cabinet-mounted monsters that I couldn't even begin to fit in my shop.
Then Micro-Mark had a sale which brought the price down to something less insane and I bit the bullet. They
advertise the sander has being variable speed from 280 to 480 RPM. I was fully prepared to send the sander right
back if it didn't have the torque to keep turning under load.
The sander is belt driven and has been wonderful in my limited use with it. It doesn't burn wood, puts a nice
edge on it and is faster than a higher RPM sander that burns wood and requires me to take the time to sand the burned
edge off. What I'm saying is I really like this sander.
The two things I don't like about it is it comes with the same crap miter gauge my
Microlux table saw came with.
It's junk and is not nearly the quality of the rest of the machine.
