    So true, but you do have a full size bench-top press.

    Thanks, Dave. It still has the original motor and switch!

    You should check Craigslist, I see a lot of ones work checking out on our local listing almost all of the time.

    Make sure you check for runout (play) in the spindle by extending it down and wiggling it about. You'll know when it's bad.

    Here is a jewel (located very close to me) but it is 3 phase motor and I already have a Walker Turner in 3ph. I think it is an old Delta, but could be a Walker Turner too.

    Okay, this is probably a dumb question but I have no experience in this. Should I get a vertical or Horizontal belt sander or one that tilts from horizontal to 90 degrees like this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...F8&me=&seller= I'm thinking the vertical sander would be more useful, like this http://www.amazon.com/Grizzly-H6070-...zg_bs_552882_6 or maybe I'll just go tribal

    What I'd miss on that 4x36 sander is not having a slack section for rounding edges but the disc sander part is nice for squaring stuff up. The little 1x30 has a slack section and disc.....this is the better option of the two if you ask me.
