That's all I can ask at this price point. Did not power on when it arrived. Sand here, sand there, sand everywhere. Dust collection is very effective. I am just making knife handles now.

The WEN 6510T was definitely our number one Oscillating Sanders. Having said that, there were a few other really premium Oscillating Sanders we wanted to showcase here that barely missed the mark.

Next up is manufactured by Shop Fox known to be a very respectable tool brand. Shop Fox's Spindle Sanders are one of their leading tools. I was eager to try out the model W1831 and I was not let down!

This Spindle Sander is only $163.28. That is a terrific deal for a quality Sander like the W1831 by Shop Fox. The Shop Fox W1831 is definitely a sound option. Of you are not sure about our number one choice, I'd suggest you pick this Sander.

Aside from the tools we already included, I would take a look at the WEN 6524 and the 708404 by Jet. Both tool manufacturers are popular for their high quality Sanders. Both of these two options are highly rated also. Users awarded the WEN an rating on average of 4.1/5 stars. You can liken that to the 708404 that boasts an average score of 3.6/5 stars.

The WEN 6524 has several features you wont experience on competing Spindle Sanders. One example is Features 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, 1 inch, 1-1/2 inch and 2 inch sanding drum sizes and one 4 x 24 inch belt. The Jet 708404 although, is very competitive featuring Power Tools and Accessories and even Country of manufacture: Taiwan.

Both of these couple tools make an exceptional option for someone whose shopping for Oscillating Sanders

That's all I can ask at this price point. It is a compact unit with BIG features. It is my go-to sander for jobs both big and small. If you have the time, works on large jobs. Wish I would have bought this long ago.

No damage, packaging can improve. It's a nice sander for the small shop. With a coat of paste wax, it's smooth. Dust collection is very effective. Like one other reviewer mine was packed upside down.

I bought this and the Grizzly 9 inch band saw. It's a nice sander for the small shop. I removed the link to help reduce confusion. Great customer service from Grizzly. Had to go out and purchase a 30 MM and a 1 1/4 wrench.

That's all I can ask at this price point. I have not had any issues with excessive heat. Plenty of power, it's never bogged down. The tilt table is a great feature as well. Wish I would have bought this long ago.
