Skil Belt and Disc Combination Sander Review

The Skil Combination Sander Offers Consistent Results On Your Toughest Sanding Jobs

When it comes to getting consistent results on your sanding projects, a benchtop belt sander is a woodworking must-have. However, many of the current options on the market target the Pro-level demographic when it comes to pricing and performance. Skil is revamping its benchtop Combination Sander for the prosumers and serious DIYers out there who demand quality results at a price that won’t break the bank.
