  • 3/30/21 - We finished what was hopefully the last part of the forum upgrade we started earlier this month, the rebuilding of all of the permissions. In our testing everything seems to be working correctly but if you have any problems please post in the "Forum Technical Support" forum and we will take a look at it. You will also see a few changes with the main forum index. We have moved the AAW Member Forums to their own group and the Marketplace Forums to their own group. This simplified the permissions configuration for the forums and hopefully it will make the forums a little easier to naviagate. Thanks!

Has anyone used this brand? I cannot find out where they are made; although they tout using German made carbide. I ordered the inertia sander as the Sorby ones I had are kind of seizing up and aren't made very well. I also have the Sanding glove sanding solution which is great but those proprietary pads are pricey and they come apart rather quickly.

Not yet John, still waiting for lathe delivery. Purchased the four tool package, seems to be of good quality and the collet head handle is interesting. Half the price of the Ultra-Shear line with same Nano/Cobalt German inserts.026DC91D-8437-4783-B17A-D71B59C07B74.jpeg0C5BD8DD-11D8-4EED-88A4-DA4E8DB53ECA.jpeg

Had not heard of them either, but had been eyeballing the Ultra-Shear tools from Woodpecker. The machined in 45 degree angle for a more controlled shear cut seems worth a try at half the price.

I did order and have been using the sander, it is ok: the handle is short and the black wood is very slippery. It seems to sand pretty good, and does have a simple bushing instead of a bearing. I think I'll wrap the handle with something. It is not as good as my sanding glove solution sander, and I should have just got another one of those.
