As a weekender, I have neither the budget nor the space for a whole shop
full of dedicated tools. I have to maximize my usage, floor space and
I was thinking of buying a PC portable oscillating spindle sander, drilling
mounting holes in the plate and mounting it inverted on some sort of stand.
My thought was to make the table surface out of 1/4" plexi with hardwood
gussets underneath to keep it flat.
Has anyone tried anything similar? Any problems?
Consider this: PC Oscillating Spindle Sander 250. Table insert 41.00 291.00
Jet Benchtop Oscillating Spindle Sander 350.00
For $60. more you have a substantially better tool. IMHO
I know space is a premium but, for my money, the Jet is better. I have
both, and almost never use the PC.
It is a good tool but the Jet does the majority of the sanding.
I purchased the Powermatic spindle sander about 10 years ago. Jet purchased
the Powermatic line and now markets it themselves. I bought it because it
has spindles down to 1/4 inch. There is a problem with the worm gear. We
replaced it once and it is now making noise again. We also lost the switch
twice, and now use a different brand of switch which holds up better. Jet
told us we will have the same problem with their unit. I think the Delta
Boss and the Ryobi, both cheaper will work better.
