Looks like a nice sander. I have the jet drum sander and the quality is excellent…shekels must be money.

I want one too. I almost bought the exact one some time ago but people convinced me I wanted the Clayton (sp?), or something like that. I shopped around for a bit, then lost interest. I’d like to have one of those permanent beltsanders on a station.

Jet makes real nice products and this tool IMHO is one of them.

This is the one everyone was recommending. It was Clayton.

It’s far from cheap, though.

For a while Powermatic was producing this sander under their Artisan(Cheaper) line. I bought one,Early on I had some issues with it,by then Powermatic had stopped making them but Jet was. The parts were all the same. Jet was most helpful in sorting out problem and providing necessary parts to correct issues. Machine has been in service about 10 years.Although I don’t use it every day I regard it as one of the more important tools in the shop. The ossilating function is essential for sanding sleeve life(IMO).
If you have a number of sanders in your shop and use them regularly I would highly recomment that you invest in a spindle sander.For me I do not regret the purchase.
Hope this helps

I have a benchtop Wilton spindle sander similar to this that I have had for 5 years or more. I thought it was a good value and has worked great. A sander like this is very handy to have. I use it all the time. this one loos a little beefier than the Wilton but probably costs a lot more too.

I have a floor model I like from grizzly but many of my students have the Ridgid model that has some great features including a side that drops down and a attachment for belt sander plus the price is only $199

a1Jim,

I was just going to recommend the Ridgid belt/spindle sander. It’s got a lifetime warranty as well.
