Steve – When I am sanding the entire width of a 9” panel is in contact spindle that is 10” long, so I’m actually using the whole spindle, kinda like a mini drum sander. I am sanding the end grain of a raised panel. I didn’t notice the sandpaper loading up much, but I didn’t check too closely for that. I was using very light pressure and it started on the first panel after changing the paper.

Karl – IDK why a slightliy higher RPM would work, but that is easy enough to try.

Yeah, a spindle sander is probably in my future. So far I’ve been able to stick to my New Year’s resolution – no new power tools. Last year was a big year for that category. I’m looking at the HF OSS and the Rigid belt/spindle sander, but for now I’m waiting for the after XMas sales.
