I just got this sander: http://www.grizzly.com/products/1-X-...c-Sander/H8192
I haven't even put it together yet and wanted to ask those of you that use similar tools a question before I do.
I stumbled across a scheme for modifying a delta belt sander with pulleys to have multiple (3) speeds. From what I gather the grizzly I bought is close enough to follow the plan successfully (the delta is no longer made). In order to achieve adjustable speeds you have to ditch the sanding disc.
My question is: For making handles and doing vintage knife refurb and general repair/grinding work (tips, reprofiling, thinning, etc) what would YOU rather have? Three speeds with a belt or a single speed belt and a disc?
Thanks in advance
