Belt and Disc Sanders, Worth the Investment.
Disc Sanders can be worth the investment if you need a machine to complete the sanding edges around wood. Much of the differing types of sanding that a disc sander can complete includes grinding and smoothing out curved edges you have made with a jig saw or band saw. With a belt and disc sander you will get the most completely professional and efficient sanding job possible. If you are looking to smooth the inside curves, you must invest in a drum sander, while other projects may require a completely different sander altogether, like a straight sander or random orbital sander. Although wood will be used most frequently with a belt and disc sander, when necessary you can also sand aluminum, plastics, and various other materials. This tool will suit your purposes and will be worth the cost and investment only if you have projects that are consistently on the table.
