At the next meeting we'll all want to hear a thorough review of that sander and the bandsaw!I’ll need a room too. Got totally carried away and bought TWO packs of ‘fruit gums’!!
Parkside sanders tend not to have a good reputation. Interested to see if that's changed.
I had one of the earliest cheapo bandsaws, ten years ago (the one's with the old fashioned curvy body shell) and it was rubbish! I could never get it tuned up and none of the nuts stayed tight once tightened. I got a long wavy cut every time. I dismantled it in the end, and used bits for other things.
So, I'm also interested to see if better technology and materials have, over the last ten years, "rolled down hill" (usually only one thing in life rolls down hill, and it ain't money ).
