I've been shopping for a belt/disc sander or an edge sander. The edge sanders just seem a little expensive for what I need. I was leaning toward a decent belt/disc combo unit until I came across a Tool Test review in a magazine recently.

The Grizzly G0529 has both an oscillating spindle sander AND a 10" disc. Both would fit my needs for some time to come. Anyone have this or use one? I'm curious what 'real world' experiences have been with it.

Thanks for any input!

I don't see a big use for a disc sander in my shop. I do own the Grizzly oss. spindle sander G1071. This is the kind of equipment that I really feel Grizzly can produce and works very well under all circumstances. It is a great machine. No one uses a spindle sander for hours on end so the preformance of a Grizzly with this type of machine, even in a pro shop is outstanding.

Well that's real interesting. Since when did Grizzly start selling through Amazon? I thought they were only distributed directly, unlike their Woodstock/ShopFox line.

Amazon added this sometime ago... Not sure if the free shipping applies, but it is nice to read reviews for their tools in there.
