This is a sweet oscillating spindle sander. It was worth the extra bucks for this machine. Sometimes I wish I has the edge belt sander option as the classic Rigid oscillating spindle sander has.
The JBOS-5 Benchtop Spindle Sander has a 1/2HP motor, and a large 14-1/2” tilting table. A heavy-duty worm gear system provides one-inch oscillating action, which prolongs sleeve life and helps prevent burnishing of the workpiece. Four inserts are provided, and 5 spindles with sanding sleeves.
1" oscillating action reduces friction heat to protect wood and prolong sleeve life
Main spindle support runs on precision ball bearings and is oscillated by a heavy-duty worm and gear mechanism for consistent performance
Oscillation gears run in a sealed lubricated box to prolong their life and durability
Table tilts to 45° to accommodate bevel sanding projects
