What did I buy?
I bought a Skil Sand Cat 2 1/2"X 16" 1/3 HP belt sander from some guy on Craig's list for $10 with spare belts. I didn't argue cause the price was so darn low, but it has the smallest sanding area ever. Practically an orbit sander on crack. For its size it has some serious weight and the thing is pretty much all motor. It is in great shape and runs well. Anybody know anything about these? I couldn't find much on google. Apparently it is older than it looks. Older than myself it turns out. I found an advertisement for one $37 1981.
