I picked up this Ryobi oscillating spindle sander yesterday on Craigslist for $30 with all the extra sanding tubes as shown in the photo. I saw this ad on Craigslist a week or so ago, and it was $45, then yesterday morning when I checked the ads, he had it down to $30, so I snatched it.

Nice, the extra sandpaper rolls alone are worth it

I’m realizing I may need one of these. Hopefully I can come across a deal like that.

Get one of those big crepe rubber cleaners and you can make your sanding tubes last a LONG time. Enjoy. I paid 3x that for my Harbor Freight model!

Nice deal. Old tennis shoes can work well too for cleaning the grits. Get the old Deck shoes though, they usually have the right kind of rubber sole.

Every time I call someone on Craigslist, it’s always the same: “Just sold.” So your the guy….........
Happy sanding….........

This is on my list as well. All these sanders and I keep finding a need for a spindle sander (and a drum sander). $30 is a STEAL !

My few Ryobi tools have actually held up just fine (beater job site router and scroll saw). I may give them a chance on a spindle sander as well. Thanks.
