Wise Buys: Benchtop Oscillating Spindle Sanders

Pages in this Story:
Craftsman 21500

Craftsman 21500

6 sanding drums: 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1-1/2", 2", and 3" in diameter
Includes: 6 insert rings, drum washers
Weight: 58 lbs

Editor test-drive:
There's nothing fancy about this unit, but it does everything I need a spindle sander to do. The 18" diameter cast-iron table provides plenty of worksurface, and beefs up the vibration-eliminating weight to 58 lbs. The Craftsman 21500 has a 3"-diameter spindle, something Ridgid and General International don't offer. I force-fed hard maple and cherry against the spindles and could not bog it down. The 2-1/2" dust port fit my shop vacuum hose precisely for good dust collection.

does the craftsman 21500 sander have a universal motor or a induction motor like the Delta BOSS sander. Looks like the Delta BOSS sander.
