Harbor Freight 1x30 sander

Post by Reverand » Wed Sep 21, 2022 1:09 pm

I may be late to the party, but I just discovered "Curry Custom Cutlery" on YouTube, and I am learning a lot from his videos.
I am still using a Harbor Freight 1x30 belt sander, and I love his tips on tuning these up for better performance.
I will probably not upgrade the motor or rollers. I would prefer to spend that money in building a 2x72 someday. But I do plan on tuning mine up just as he shows in this first video:

Thank you Reverand for posting that video. That just happens to be the same brand of sander that I have except I also have the disc sander on the end.... ::tu::

Great video.
Looks like I have a project ahead.
