  • Oscillating Spindle Sanders

    Does anyone know of a maker of these that makes a smaller spindle diameter than 1/2 inch? The only one I've looked at was a Delta B.O.S.S. @ the local Lowes store in town.I do one carving that is real popular and I need a way to speed up one part of the process.I need one with at most a 3/8 inch spindle.If I can't find anything smaller, I may have to modify my plans.

    I have not seen any commercially available but I bet you could make one with a dowel and some paper. perhaps a saw kerf centered in the dowel to make it a mandrel... some super glue.... double sided tape.... chuck the dowel in the drill press or hand drill. Also dremel etc. type tools do have some small ones. Just some thoughts.

        I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

        John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

        Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

        I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

        This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

        I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

        Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

        How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
