PostSubject: Buying a sander, need help (already bought)   Mon Nov 30, 2015 1:48 am

Ok so I think I'll finally be buying a combination sander.

Harbor freight has their sander on sale for $60 and I could get it for $47 with their coupon
http://t.harborfreight.com/4-inch-x-36-inch-belt-6-inch-disc-sander-97181.html

On the other hand, I can get a WEN sander for $85 shipped
http://www.homedepot.com/p/WEN-4-3-Amp-4-in-x-36-in-Belt-with-6-in-Disc-Sander-6502/205527859?cm_mmc=shopping-_-googleads-_-pla-_-205527859&ci_sku=205527859&ci_gpa=pla&ci_src=17588969&gclid=CKvshruDt8kCFZQvgQodCyYDug&gclsrc=aw.ds

I can afford either one, just not sure if I should just save my money and buy the HF one, I know I'm going to have to adjust it and all if I do buy it, just I don't know if it will be shakey and unreliable or not? Does anyone have one of these HF sanders, and if you do, is it worth the buy?

I was guessing that, some people say theirs have lasted for years, some say otherwise. I'm probably going to stop by harbor freight anyway tommorow just to check it out. Anyone else?

Not sure about sanders specifically, but more often than not I find you get what you pay for. Especially when it comes to electronics and such. Might be worth the extra money in the long run.

Ok, I'll probably buy the more expensive one, just that $50 deal is insane tongue

Don't buy the harbor freight one. All my tools from harbor freight have been absolutely terrible. I have or similar to the one you linked from home depot and it's lasted me a while.

See you have already ordered it, but for what it's worth:

I have bought tons of tools off Harbor Freight and it's truly hit or miss. Some things I have gotten - Motorcycle Stand, Motorcycle Trailer, Circular Saw, Table Saw - have lasted forever and I have had 0 issues. What I did have issues with is - sockets, screw drivers, hand sander, drill - so honestly man it may last forever and it may break down. For fingerboards, the Harbor Freight one will probably last quite awhile as it isn't exactly using it to its full potential. You should be okay.

I know bro I didn't see that post and I already had it typed out haha. You made the right choice wink

That's why I edited it and added "see you have already ordered it.."
