Keith_W Posted December 10, 2013 Share #1 Posted December 10, 2013 I recently met someone who recommended a linisher for woodworking. For those who don't know, a linisher is a combined belt and disc sander. This is what it looks like: The belt can be either stiff or floppy, and has a useful curve for sanding concave surfaces. I was told that it can also be used to taper dowels for masts. On top of its use with models, it can also be used to sharpen knives and garden tools. Use a polishing belt and some cutting compound, and it can polish metal. I have never seen this machine come up for discussion on this forum. I was wondering if someone owns one and can provide feedback as to how this machine compares with other common machines on this site (lathes, mills) for various tasks - for example: shaping planks and tapering dowels?
