Fine grit on one, coarser grit on the other. That looks like a quality portable power tool that would be a great addition under the work bench. Like many, I have a multitude of sanders with various gr...

Back in the days when that saw was made (1950s), a 36" general use commercial shop band saw was pretty much the standard size with the larger format being a 42" saw.  Those direct drive motors were sm...
