    I have the Grizzly Model G1276 (1725 RPM) 6"x48" Belt and 12" Disc combination stationary sander. It does a great job. Heavy-duty, rated at 1 HP.

    Using a standard mitre gauge in the table slot (standard 3/4") it's easy to achieve near perfect bevels. Nearly every miter that comes from my chop saw goes to the sander for cleanup.

    It's not inexpensive (approx. $500) but I have had excellent results with it.

    I use a Jet Multitool I got from trick-tools: http://vansantent.com/multitool.htm
    I bought it as an affordable belt sander but it is one of the most used tools in my shop.

    greg1302,
    I have the same one you do, but I use it for small projects. Only! Not much torque! I saw 1 time a few years ago a small fab shop (aluminum mostly) have a much larger one (sears again). Think the round part was like 12" with the belt side was 8 or 10". Worked well for them, using it to cope round alum tubing and other things. 1 you and I got has such a small motor.... What are you trying to use it for?
