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.

It's true that the WEN 6510T was the Oscillating Sanders that we ranked most highly. That being said, there are a number of other fantastic options when it comes down to Oscillating Sanders. We have them for you here.

Shop Fox is an additional leading manufacturer of Sanders. They build the tool next on our rundown. Shop Fox's Spindle Sanders are no exception. I was eager to have a go at the model W1831 and I was not disappointed!

The model W1831 Spindle Sander by Shop Fox, at $163.28 is a particularly exceptional Sander for the price. If you uncertain about our top choice, I'd look into the Shop Fox W1831 next. It's a premium quality tool at a terrific price.

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.
