  • Mobile base for Spindle sander

    I am looking for opinions or sources for a mobile base for my new Jet spidle sander.
    I will probably build one but I am curious if any of you know of a ready made source for an appropriate base.
    There used to be the Tool dock series but they have gone out of business.

    Jeff what have you done with yours?.
    The tool is very tall so it needs a low cabinet.

    You have the bench top model? Mine is a bench top model and I just have it sitting on a regular height cabinet. I find it to be a perfect height for me...the top of the table is just under eye level while standing at the cabinet..I stand while using it, of course I can't imagine needing it for long enough periods to want or need to be sitting. You could build a shorter cabinet and put castors on it, but then you'd be leaning over to use it which is hard on the back. Of course, I also wonder, if it was on a small cabinet with may need to lock the wheels so you don't push it around the shop while using it. The rubber feet hold the tool nice and steady on a table and there's pretty much no vibration at all...what a steady smooth machine. Congrats on making a smart decision..I use mine every day and find it to be the best spindle sander money can buy. In a few days you'll be wondering how you ever accomplished anything without it. Of course, it doesn't have a lifetime warranty, but it is built to last a lifetime.

      That is certainly a very bright contrast. Nice restoration.
