Another project for the Wisty workshop. This one is built using the same materials as the remainder of my shop benches (to keep things looking uniform, I guess that is the military side of me coming out).
I did this project in 2011, but am just now getting back online to catch up on postings. The two sanders are mounted to the bench which is on wheels so I can use it anywhere in my shop. Both machines are hooked up to a dedicated vacuum for dust collection. Some storage under the cart allows for my portable disc sander and some misc other boxes.
The Ridgid Oscilating sander has been a great addition to my shop and has seen tons of use already, as an inexpensive machine, it is well worth the money. If your shop doesn’t already have one, suggest you get one as it is very useful for all sorts of projects.
The cart is on wheels for ease of movement throughout the shop, and even though on wheels, it doesn’t move around when I am using the sander.
All in all, I am very pleased with this project, both in terms of looks and functionality.
Thanks for checking out my project. More to come soon as time permits to upload these.

Nice work on the stand.

Pretty fancy stand. Looks good.
I was chamfering some tenons yesterday with the oscilating belt and tilted table. I don’t think I could go without that tool for A&C style furniture.

I’ve been looking at that sander for a few weeks now. Nearly bought one Sunday but decided to wait and see if it goes on sale this holiday weekend. Seems everyone that buys it likes it.

Thanks for showing your setup..just what I need.

Can’t wait to get the ridgid. Do you find you use your belt sander now that you have the ridgid?

Nicely compacted, and portable, with many sanding options, and dust collection right there. Very nice build
