Picked up this spindle sander the other day. What a great little unit. I wanted to have some place to store it so it didn’t get banged up and i looked at my now broken delta contractor saw and had an idea.

Made the shelf today in about 20 minutes. Figured it’s a good place to store my ROS and pads and stuff.

I think i made the box a tad high lol. Its about 9 1/2” tall, probably could have went shorter. Will probably make a new one since i can get free plywood from work.

Nice reuse. I did something similar for mine. You’ll love that sander.

It’s awesome, just from the few minutes i used it i like it. Very quiet, and come on, two sanders in one for $200? Awesome deal. If i had a table saw, id make a nice station out of it, but for now this works.

Looks good! Question about the sander – I just bought one about a month ago and the left side is about 1/8th off from the right side and the folding table is not level with the back of it. Is yours the same?

The folding table, when set to be flat. Dips about 1/8th on the left side. I just don’t know if it is mine or if others are like that.

Hold the phone I have the same OSS it’s awesome but…you get free 3/4” plywood from work you lucky SOB! All we have are crappy 3/8 pine board pallets that are beat to hell when they come in.

Yeah well lol. It’s usually not full sheets, but a lot of times the carpenters throw half sheets in a scrap rack in case they need it. I usually pilfer that or take the scrap from the CNC machine.
