  • 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 wheels..you 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.

      Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
      Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

      I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

      I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

      The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

      Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riPDY6M-Lv8

      Here is the pattern on Ricks' site: http://www....
