I bought the Triton TC450SPS Spindle Sander at Woodcraft today on sale for $129. I’m not familiar with this brand but it was a really good price and had a cast iron top, 3.5 amp and 2000 rpm. Before I open this sucker I thought I’d ask you gurus if anyone has feedback on this item? Thoughts? Love it? hate it?

I own it and I love it. Except, Triton has discontinued this product and so they won’t service nor do they carry replacement parts for it. It is also really difficult to find that size sanding sleeve, especially in the higher (220) grits. Woodcraft carries sleeves that size in 80 and 120. I was able to find the 220 online at

Look here for sleeves. I purchased from here for my rigid belt/spindle sander.

BTW, I use my the Rigid spindle and belt system a lot. It is great for shaping with belt and spindles let you get into the smaller areas.

+1, ChrisK.
I own a Triton SCMS. Great tool. I think the co. is based in Australia.
Sorry to read that they can’t service all their tools.

It’s the same as the harbor freight model.

I believe that that exact sander is also available branded as a Rockwell.

I went for the Ridgid. Love it.
