This disc sander was removed from the woodshop in 2021 - the Axminster Belt & Disc Sander had taken over its main role, and the open casing of the motor on this sander had become a fire risk because the interior was filled with sawdust. As of 2021 this sander was in storage in the metal shop, so it could be revived if anybody has a specific use for it
