The sander in Episode 1904 is somewhat different than the Sanding Center in previous episodes. It's probably Delta's newer 31-735. It is significantly different in price, however—try double. As I said in the article on the 31-280, this type of sander doesn't seem to make a big splash in the market. I guess there aren't that many people who want to pay more than $1000 for a belt/disc sander.
Thanks to the prodding by my friend below, I went back and reviewed several episodes and found that this tool has been in the shop since the beginning of Season 17. Imagine waiting two years to feature it!
Thanks to my friend Tony Haukap for pointing out the different sander.
