I have the Rigid oscillating spindle sander and I love it. I would only change two things – I’d make it variable speed and be able to turn off the oscillating feature so I could use it with a pattern bearing. Has anyone out there done either one of these “upgrades”?
I think I could buy a variable speed control like they sell for routers. I looked at one and it said be sure your motor has replaceable brushes. I don’t think this one does, so you would have to be willing to burn out the motor. I’m not sure I’m willing.
Anybody tackle the oscillating “feature”?
