If you've ever seen an edge sander shake like an old washing machine... you'll understand why we wanted to design our own. It seemed a little crazy at first, but after we finished the project and flipped the switch, we realized that this big, green machine was an impressive tool.
It runs smooth and strong — just like you’d expect from an industrial quality tool. And when you adjust the tracking, the belt not only shifts up or down on the rollers instantly — it stays put. Plus, we included a host of other features that make this shop-built edge sander outperform just about any sander on the market.
