Disc Sander binge

I was quite happy with my 24" Kindt Collins disc sander. Two 15" State disc sanders snuck there way in last week. Today I was left unsupervised on the internet, now I am the owner of a 37" Oliver dual disc sander.

7.5hp, 900 rpm, 42"x84" foot print, nice and tidy 3600 pounds.

I will see if I can snag a picture from the auction.

Also bought all 4 pattern makers benches, each one had an Emmert turtle back on it.

Gotta love Oliver cast iron. But what on earth do you sand with something like that, and where do you get discs?

I can sand what ever I want.

I do lots of curved work, great for fitting parts too.

I have a supplier in Texas that get my paper from. Heavy cloth backed PSA.

My 24's are about 15 bucks each, 37's are just over 20 each.

They last a long time too.

Good lord, are you putting a curve on the end of a log? You're a braver man than I, I'd be terrified to stand in front of that monster...

I need cheaper hobby

So in other words the lights on all your neighbors houses will dim every time you turn that thing on.

Only 7.5 hp. Shouldn't be that bad. We run 10 hp tools on a 60 amp breaker in the metal shop.

My planer, jointer and shaper are all 7.5hp. All run off a 15hp rpc at the moment.

The discs are 1/2" thick steel, bit of mass to get spinning.

the KC master 24" sander is far more versatile than the double disc Oliver which is 36" by the way. The angle adjustment yoke on the Oliver is weak and fragile. Can only access 2/3 rds of the face of the disc. Have worked in 7 Pattern shops in the last 40 years and the
KC 24" sanders were in every one of them in multiples along with the matching tilting 2 speed oscillating spindle sander.

No, it measures 37" if the table tilt trunions are weak, I have yet to see any that are broken. As far as using the whole face, only thing I can't do is drop the table all the way below the disc.
