To me having an oscillating spindle sander is kind of a luxury. So when Menard’s had this puppy on sale I decided to buy one and check it out. The ones that I use at school are nice but lack some of the features that this one has. First off cast iron top. Really nice and really heavy. The Wilton’s at school have a laminate top I think that is a pretty big difference. This one weighs in @ 34.5 pounds. Nice storage on board and when I hooked up my shop vac to the 3” port on the back I was greatly surprised and the dust collection on this unit not bad for $92 and change. All & all I give 10 fingers up for the price, and the machine that you get I don’t think that it can be beat.
Motor: 102v, 7/16 HP
Speed: 2000 RPM (no load)
Max Sanding height: 3 1/2”
-- I cut it twice and the damn thing is still too short!@#$%
