Hello Donovan, I have to admit I do not recognize your name but I do remember two fine looking gentlemen stopping by a few years ago to pick up a sander at an extremely discounted price.:) Also, sorry I forgot to give you several belts that went with it. They are still setting in the cabinet, no use to me. I replaced that sander with a Rigid oscillating spindle sander. By far the best sander I have ever owned. 4"x10" belt sander with 6 various diameter spindles. I use metal sanding paper on it also, just disconnect the shop vacuum so no sparks get into the sawdust bin.
I don't have the room for strips anywhere that long. I work 99.9% of the time alone so they would be difficult to handle plus I would not be able to turn around with them in my shop. (My current shop residents are a Quad, a snowblower, a 3/4 completed biplane, a kayak ready for finish sanding, a kayak hull just completed, A cherry picker with the aircraft engine hanging on it plus all the various power tools and work benches)
Build your shop twice as big as you think you need - it may hold 1/2 of your stuff :(
Just saw the dates for the Meet at the Beach this year. I have never been. I am going to try harder to make it this year. Not sure I would recognize you so if you see me please say hello :)
