I checked out that Delta belt/6" drum sander at Home Depot. Made in
Taiwan. Still, although it looks like the same beastie as the
Chinese one, there are things to be considered like the difference in
electric motor manufacture and tolerances. I'll probably try the
Central Machinery one because I don't plan on using it every day, or
even for moderately heavy use. I will take the advice, though, of
asking if I can try to run it in the store to see that I am getting
one in which the belt tracks well. Thanks for the advice!
