WOOD magazine review

Leave your sander running and save production time

Review Summary

Nearly everyone wishers they could have more time for doing the things that mean the most. If sanding is not one of those things, then the Orbital Station will save you time for better things. This handy accessory mounts to a wall or bench or even in a vise, and holds your electric sander—while it’s running—so you can reposition or flip your workpiece. Admittedly it’s not going to save hours, but if you’re sanding all day, it will shave a few minutes from your job.
I used the Orbital Station with a 5" random-orbit sander and a quarter-sheet palm sander, and its adjustable and sturdy metal jaws gripped each one securely without them vibrating loose. At first I was hesitant to trust it, but I quickly learned that I could. Now, I appreciate the freedom it provides. —Tested by Steve Feeney
