Looks solid and seems to work well. Had to build a little rolling cart for it since it’s to tall for a bench top and to short to leave on the floor. It will get lots of use in my shop.

Did not have to put anything together. Worked perfect as advertised. Very strong and solid. I built a strong wood platform on brake caster wheels for the spindle sander to sit on (approx. 2 feet square). Doesn't vibrate.

Works as expected. Like the tilting features. Storage needed for the wrenches.

I was thrilled with the sander, it was easy to set up. All that was required was to put the sanding sleeves onto the spindle and insert the spindle into the machine. I was concerned with the comments relative to the two inch dust connection. All that was required was 2 wraps with duct tape.

Finding a decent spindle sander at a reasonable price is not easy. I really wanted to like this jet sander, but.... After about 2 years the machine is useless. Pros: -5.5" spindle is a big plus! -motor is plenty strong! -machine is heavy and stable Cons: - lots of motor vibration - loud! - the rubber sleeves break down over time and become unusable after about 2 years. A single (1) new sleeve costs $175 to replace!!!!! So basically as soon as the rubber sleeves wear out, the machine is junk. I still don't have a better answer for a spindle sander for my shop, but save your money and buy a cheaper one. This is NOT a workhorse sander!

Very well made machine. Big and heavy. Taller than I expected so you will need a low sturdy table to operate it upon.
