It is a heavy lump of metal which means it stays put wherever you place it.
I have no other machine to compare it to but I think its quite when in use and won't annoy the neighbours .
Things to note, if this is (like me) your first bench sander.
THIS IS NOT A TOY!
It is a heavy tool with moving parts, do NOT wear loose clothing ie: tie, necklace etc when using, because if any thing gets caught in the sanders the results could be lethal.
There is a stop on the top sanding belt which covers about 3" of the sanding belt, the stop is there to stop your work piece from flying across the room at high speed should you remove the stop thinking you can gain another 3" of sanding belt. I found this out the hard way.
LEAVE THE STOP IN PLACE.
If you are used to using a hand sander and this is your first bench sander it is easy to forget that unlike the hand sander which has your fingers wrapped around it, with the bench sander, your fingers are free which means if you are not careful you will sand your finger tips or knuckles as well and because this is a semi industrial tool, it WILL remove your skin!, so take care when holding the work piece and preferably wear gloves as as well. (Again found out the hard way)
So far I've only used this to make 3 string guitars with and the belt sander is excellent for sanding down fret boards and the corner on the end of the belt sander, sands down the internal curves of the neck and body really well. Where as the disc sander is excellent for creating nice external curves on a solid body.
The sander WILL create a LOT of dust, so either it use outside or invest in a dust extraction system.
This is not a cheap tool, but I am pleased I've bought it and as long as the motor holds out there's no reason why it shouldn't work for many years to come and as long as you remember this is a tool with moving parts and treat it with respect you should have no problems.
Have given it considerable use and find it to me a very robust and well made machine, although it is not to the old Scheppach standard, the motor is not so powerful so will not stand excessive pressure when using the sanding belt, but I am sure that with considerate usage it will give good long service
I have contacted the seller and am awaiting a reply – if I end up getting a replacement I’ll update this review with a report on what the sander is like to use – but for now – if you have any Scheppach item – PLEASE check the mains cable at the entry point to the machine – hopefully mine is only a one off, but I’d hate to think of anyone owning one that was unaware of this potential lethal fault!
Previously gave this one star: I had an almost immediate response from both the seller & Scheppach, the U/S unit was replaced within a couple of days free of charge. Now I've had a chance to use it in anger I'm really pleased - It takes a while to get everything properly set up, but it is easy to do and there is plenty of adjustment to get the table perfectly aligned & square. In use, the circular disk sander has plenty of torque and does a great job. The belt sander is easy to swap position and also does a good job, though doesn't have as much torque as the disk, which isn't an issue for me (but might not be up to any serious metal grinding work if you were of a mind!).
Customer service was first rate & my faith in Scheppach gear is fully restored!
