If it’s the benchtop model, I think I saw it for $90 new with a coupon which would give you a warranty and return privlages. If you don’t have a spindle sander you will wonder what you did without one. I have a benchtop made by someone else and love it. For $40 take it out of your beer money and don’t look back.

A new one in our area is 130.00 and then with the coupon is over 100.00 dollars. This belonged to a older man and he took really good care of it it has the oval table. I am going to look at it today, and let you know what happens. I have never had one before and hear all good things about using one. Thanks bullhead1

I’m on my second one of those and have been vey pleased with their performance. iThe first one crapped out after 5 months and HF replaced it. The second one is now 4 years old and counting. Believe it or not, the sanding sleeves from Harbor Freight are very good (last forever if you keep em clean with one of those big crepe rubber erasers.)

It depends what you want to use it for? If it’s for occasional use and it’s in good working condition it’s hard to beat $40
but on the other hand for another $160 or less if they accept 20% off coupon you can get the Rigid ,a great sander with super reviews.
