Sand Curves With Ease
Sanding is one of those necessary evils we all face as woodworkers. That’s why we flock to any tool that promises to make the job easier. Craftsman new Oscillating Spindle Sander makes sanding curves and contours easier and less time consuming.
The sander features a large 18-in. diameter cast iron table for better work support and less vibration. The 1/4-hp direct drive induction motor rotates the spindle at 1725 RPM while simultaneously moving it up and down 1-in. at a rate of 30 strokes per minute. The combined movement creates the oscillating motion that produces a smoother finish with less burning and chatter.
Annoying sawdust is instantly removed by a fan assisted dust collection system that pulls the sawdust through the inserts and into a 2-1/2-in. exhaust port for your shop vacuum.
The Craftsman Oscillating Spindle Sander also comes with a tool free thumb knob for easy spindle changes, rubber foot pads to reduce vibration, abrasive drums and sleeves in 1/2, 3/4, 1, 1 1/2, 2, 3-in. diameter sizes, plus on board storage for sleeves, drums, inserts and power cord.
