A disc sander is a machine that consists of a circular sand paper covered wheel being electrically spun around. It is sat between two benches-the one on the front is used to put your work on. The one at the back houses the machinery that spins the wheel around. It is used chiefly to sand wooden objects so that they have smoother edges. To use, press the piece of wood up against the spinning disc gently. Turn over and do the same again. Wikipedia does not have an article with this exact name. ...

Belt Sanders are identified by the width of the sanding belt and the diameter of the sanding disc.
The sanding disc moves at the same time as the belt, and has a side work table that can be tilted from 0' to 45 degrees for bevel sanding.
The disc sander is mostly used for edging operations and therefore you should use a coarser abrasive, usually an (80- 0) or (60-1/2) grit.
