WOOD magazine review

General International Benchtop Spindle Sander

Review Summary

Why pay this much for a benchtop spindle sander? Because the 81-lb heft of a rugged cast-iron top and heavy steel base eliminates vibration, and the 1⁄2-hp motor—twice as big as the competitors—powers through wood without a hint of stalling. The 5-1⁄2" sanding drums (other makes are 4-1⁄2") are perfect for those rare occasions when you need to sand a workpiece that large. The table tilts to 45° for angled work.
And there’s an adapter included to hook up a 4" dust hose to the 2" port.
