So far so good. Like one other reviewer mine was packed upside down. I had no damage. Been sanding walnut. It is hard so the going is slow but it is getting done. So far I've only used the 1/2" spindle. I'm well satisfied and will update the review if necessary.
Oscillating sander is everything said to be, very good machine. Only problem I'm having is can't seem the to clean the table. If anyone has a solution to clean other then sanding or solvents (tried acetone or MEK) I'd like to here about it...using wax paper for now.
I love this sander and would have given it five stars, but it was packed upside down in the box, which distroyed the styrofoam packaging. This caused a hole in the side of the box during shipping and a few pieces were missing.
Working ok. Two problems: the dust port is metric so nozzle of shop vacation 2 1/2 inch doesn't fit. Had the same problem with bench belt sander. My solution was a 2 1/2 rubber coupling from DIY store (plumbing secrion) to make the collection. 2nd problem. The table appears to be a few degrees off 90 to the sanding spindle with no apparent adjustment. Changing spindles is easy.
