Spindle Sander

#255287 by lalkie01 » Fri Dec 28, 2018 6:21 pm

I am looking at purchasing a spindle sander. Most of them have a 4 inch spindle but only a 105 inch stroke. Why not a 3 inch stroke. Just wondering. Larry

Long spindles are relatively easy to make.

Not so long stroke. ;)

I (well, a machinist) outfitted my Rigid spindle sander with two inch extensions. Really makes a difference.

Gene: Any chance of getting some pictures. I have some metal working tools and could possibly copy your extension. Thanks Larry

Sorry for the late reply, Larry. I'll try to get some pictures in the next few days
