Topic tags/keywords: spindle sander sanding boss

I’d like to find an old Delta BOSS, but I can’t find one anywhere. At this point, I’m open to anything that somebody is willing to sell, just as long as they aren’t asking an arm and a leg for it. I’d prefer a bench top machine, so if you got one laying around, or you’re looking to upgrade, let me know. I have banjo heels that need radiused! Thanks y’all!

Yea I know those Grizzly’s and similar models are fairly cheap, but I just had good luck with that BOSS sander in the past. I’d like to have one of those, or another one of those really heavy bench top sanders because I use it a lot. I’m not sure how much room those Grizzly sander tables have for clamping jigs to them either.

The Boss, is that the PC hand held spindle sander? Never seen one in person but through pictures would love to have one. My spindle is the Ridgid spindle/belt. More that worth the price, shop for a display unit or something to save.

B.O.S.S. = Bench Oscillating Spindle Sander by Delta then came the P.O.S.S.= Portable Oscillating Spindle Sander by Porter-Cable. This was during the time where Pentair owned Delta and Porter-Cable + others and placed the Marketing/Sales/Engineering staffs in Jackson, TN

The P.O.S.S. title was used internally. The P.O.S.S. Model 121 did have an accessory table similar to a bench top router table but I am not sure if it made it to market. Woodhaven and Rockler made an P.O.S.S. insert for a router table at one time.
