- Delta oscillating spindle sander attachment 17-960
- Brand: Delta | Category: Drill Presses
I picked this up at a local auction for $5, put it all together and was afraid to power on the drill for this contraption looks somewhat deadly. It came with a belt guard that I did not install (I will, though) so I can see just how this modern machinery marvel operates as the yellowish rubber band belt looks like it’s about to fling off the 2” silver circle pulley. I changed to the fastest RPM (3200) the little 10” drill press could go.
This little device (who engineers stuff like this? Must of came in a dream) works 100%. I will use this for light duty work because I do not want to damage / wear & tear the side loads and bearings on the quill. I can leave the attachment in place as needed.
