    I think I am going to buy the sander I believe it will be another asset to shop and make build that more enjoyable.

  5. Lookie what the postman brought, two speed controllers and a new Tx stand. Plugged one of the controllers into the belt sander and it did indeed slow it down. I got the same one dhal22 posted. Problem now is, my sander is so old that when it slows down it don't have any ass for sanding. Guess I'll just have to get a new one. lol. Almost forgot, I like the Tx stand also. I have never liked picking it up off a table or the ground when it was laying flat, don't have to anymore..

    Can not lookie no picture. No power when it slows down is a problem with those types of controllers that is why I asked to see how you liked it, normally power is good down to 85 % then it drops of like a stone. My thoughts were that even though the power dropped off more than it should it would still be fine for balsa wood. What are your thoughts.
  7. LOL!! My thought's are as follows. My belt sander is about eight years old, it has to be manually spun to get it going, any pressure at all with hardwood will stop it. My thoughts are it is wore completely out, literally. LOL!!!
    Seriously though, it is wore out and I have been wanting a new one for some time but have not had much need for it. But with the new build I am going to have to get one. I used the controller on the band saw as well as the drill press and it worked great, not that the bandsaw is as good slowed down but I wanted to play with the controller. Also hooked it up to a small window unit blower I plan to use for air circulation and it worked well with it also. All in all I'd say it work's and is worth it.

  8. @Snoopy1 I did not buy it for the bench top tools but for the a/c blower motors I have, two of them. At full power they are to strong for what I want but they are made for variable speed. Made for variable and a little higher on the amp make the controller work extremely well. On the blower fan the controller would run it from a near stop to full speed, going to be very useful when I get the ventilation/ circulation system installed. If it so happens to work well on a new belt sander, all the better but no love lost here if it don't.
    I'll be picking me up a new sander tomorrow and will let you know how it does.
