A ten inch disk sander’ll lighten your wallet at least $150. So why not turn your table saw into a disk sander for under $35 instead with CMT’s balance blade and sanding disk? Their disk mounts to saws with a standard 5/8 inch arbor and utilizes standard self-stick sanding disks. Sounds to me like a great way to pocket over a hundred bucks and gain valuable shop space.
CMT also markets this blade as a solution for squaring your table saw, but let’s be honest: it’s just as easy to square your table saw with a normal blade. There’s no reason to go through the extra step of mounting this blade to square the saw and then replacing it with the blade you are going to use.
The balance blade and sanding disk comes in eight and ten inch sizes. And if you look around, you can find the the eight inch version for about $20 and the ten inch one for $30. Self-stick sanding disks are not included.
