I’ve found one of these on Craigslist for $50.

What do your great woodworking minds think about this? I’ve looked in the reviews section of the site and didn’t find any. The reviews on Amazon were terrible. Underpowered being the biggest gripe.

I am going to get a Rigid OSS soon, but this looks like a pretty good deal.

Any opinions for me?

What are you using the sander for?

I say save your $50 and buy the ridgid OSS.

Resisting affordable items on CS is difficult for me but I would let this pass.

If I was turning pens and bottle stoppers or making doll furniture and it came with a pile of belts and disks I might go for it.

Keep looking, you’ll find a better model for the same price. -Jack
