I recently purchased the Woodriver oscillating spindle sander. Here it is in use for the first time. It is much faster than the sanding drum in the drillpress method I have been using. The dust collection works very well and it is quiet. The finish is much better than I get from the stationary drum.  There seems to be plenty of power to handle most contouring jobs around the shop. It is currently on sale at a very good price.

If you have a need for a drum sander I can recommend this one highly. And at the current sale price it is a very good value.

As always, thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment.

    I have a Ridgid and love mine.

    • My friend Rob Porcaro has the Rigid and loves his. It is a good machine and the added feature of the oscillating belt is very handy. At full price for the Woodriver the Rigid would be my choice. But at $130 the Woodriver is a better value for me and it is a good machine.
