This is more of a tool storage post. It has to do with sanders so I am guessing this is the best spot for it. Please inform if this would be more appropriate in another location. I'm new to forums, this is the only one I am on so still learning the basics.
Some pictures of sandpaper storage. It was always a problem before. The sandpaper boxes were always getting smashed in my trailer. I would not realize that I was almost out of a certain grit until on the job and would make surprise trips to the store. The systainer storage was easy to make and has solved all problems so I thought I would share it. The dividers are just 1/4" MDF glued and nailed with 23 gauge pins.
The one is 5" disks and the other is for the festool RO90 sander.
Supposedly Makita makes some good Half Sheet Sanders. Havent look into it but thats what some other woodworkers I know recommend.
The Makita 0946 is a decent half sheet sander with plenty of power. It's gear driven. Makita also makes decent belt sanders, very reliable and powerful. I really like Rupes half-sheet sanders too. I bought a second hand one several years ago and it's been excellent. Made in Italy, I think Rupes only makes sanders and polishers. I sold my Festool half sheet sander after using the Rupes sander.
Looks to not have dust collection. Thats not good for me.....I refuse to use a sander without built in dust collection unless its pneumatic over a downdraft table.
Obviously polishers (like the Rupes big foot in the link) don't have dust collection, but all the Rupes sanders I've seen do have dust collection. My old Rupes half sheet sander has good dust collection. I don't know if Rupes sanders are available in the USA. They are available in the uk at 110v 50hz or in Japan at 100v 50/60hz..
Yes, you would be running on 60hz. which sander are you referring to? 220v (and 110v) in the UK runs on 50hz. These handheld power tools almost all run with universal motors. Universal motors are not too fussy about whether it's 50 or 60hz. I run a metabo sander from the UK in Japan it's 110v 50hz. My power source is 100v 60hz. I haven't had any problems with it in the years that I've owned it. I'm not an electrician or engineer, so can't give you a professional answer, just my experience.
abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.

glynnco: Did you order from GereedschapPro? I see them as in stock but I'm located in the US and am not sure if they ship here. I sent them an email asking about shipping but it was returned undeliverable...

jonathan: I've purchased a lot of stuff from our neighbours @ GereedschapPro.nl As far as I know they are one of the larger Mafell dealers in the EU. I can recommend them, they usually respond quickly.

lasse: Thanks for the tip! I have own a mafell rail which is 160 cm and one that is 80 cm. Will it work just as well or will I need to buy rail that is 110 cm?
