A couple issues that I have ran into so far. The motor adjusts from 0 to 10 fpm. It works well but there is a lot of weight riding it. The readout is magnetic and sits just below the hand wheel. With the caster it move around easy.

Grizzly G1079R Final Thoughts
"The results were excellent."
A couple issues that I have ran into so far. Overall though the sander is a great machine for the price. When placing a board in the machine. You won't know its on until you start sanding. The 4 inch ones roll much better.
