    Hey everyone,

    Overall, at this point, I'm satisfied with this grinder. It's getting me started in something I'm becoming very passionate about- Knifemaking. I didn't have to brake the bank to get started. Clearly though, this grinder is just an entry point for knifemaking. For anything else, the buck might be able to stop here. As to the specifics...

    Pluses-- It is pretty much all sturdy metal. The only plastic is the shield and the air intake for sucking particles. There are several small touches that show some attention to detail-- the grinder has rubber feet to cut down on vibration, the tool rests both install parallel to the grinder wheel/belt, the plastic that the air intake is made from seems to be of durable quality.

    Minuses- Eastwood should be honest in it's listing for this tool as not being ideal for knifemaking. It gets too hot too quickly because of it's shear size. The belt size is not ideal and replacements aren't common, but can be had for a bit of a premium over packs of 10 for other longer belt sizes. The Dipping tray is worthless. It's too shallow and oddly shaped to be worth using over a cup of water next to your bench. BIGGEST COMPLAINT- the belt sander's tracking adjustment knob doesn't stay in one place. It vibrates loose unless you fix it in place somehow using a rubber band or locktite. Check out my small video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSxu8-Bat6I&feature=youtu.be

    We have corrected the issue with the belt tracking adjuster to address the issues you have seen. Thank you for pointing it out!

    Grinder/Belt Sander arrived on time! The grinder it's
    self looks GREAT! I put the grinder together. Turned
    on....the grinding stone wobbled (warped) something awful. I will have to go out and purchase
    a new grinding stone. This leaves me VERY disappointed. Makes me wonder if the grinder itself
    is of poor quality. I'm hoping if by a ghost of a chances....someone reads this at EASTWOOD and they will send to me a new grinding stone that useable!

    *********Eastwood Note: We would be happy to send you a replacement! Please email us at: techelp@eastwood.com*********

    I recently purchase Eastwood's combo bench grinder and belt sander. Given the reviews posted expressing difficulty finding belts I thought I would pass on my source for custom belts. It is " Econaway Sanding Belts" they have no minimums and offer a wide selection of aggregates. Ph 616-846-2550 or www.econaway.com
    Best of luck Roberto

    We do now carry replacement belts! Thanks for your feedback.

    The product is exactly what they show with some detail except they leave out one important fact. They don't sell the replacement belts for the sander and no one else either ,you have to have them special ordered and only the belts come in boxes of fifty. I just think that if you are going to sell a product with special belt sizes you should at least sell the replacements in packs of 5 , 10 , and 20 so that we may get more than one grit type at a time. Other than that it is great.
