Comments:
I inherited this disk/belt sander from my Grandfather in 1994 upon his passing. The sander has the optional 9" disk table and miter gage on it that he purchased new as extras. I have a 1980's vintage 3/4-HP 1725 RPM General Electric motor power this sander. I added a 1952 vintage Craftsman 16"x18" metal power tool stand I got off another machine which I also restored. I repainted the sander, stand and motor with a two part Awl Grip polyurethane paint mixed to match the King-Seeley gray enamel color. I've put new Browning machined steel pulleys and a new V-belt on this sander. My Grandpa bought the sander brand new at the Lincoln Park Sears store (Southfield Rd./Fort St.)in the Detroit, Michigan area not too far from his house in Melvindale. I use this sander all the time for my boat work and other woodworking projects.
