Clayton - 140 Oscillating Spindle Sander
Clayton's oscillating spindle sander comes with four spindle sizes and features a non-tilting table
I tested seven oscillating spindle sanders that range in price from $140 to $1639. All were compact enough to sit on a workbench (except for two floor standing models, the Bridgewood included) and each did a very good job at the primary task of sanding curves. The Clayton features a heavy-duty oscillation mechanism and is built with a sturdy construction and a high-quality motor. It’s steel table does not tilt, which is a disadvantage, but it is wide enough to support large workpieces. The Clayton also had the highest spindle runout of the bunch at 0.012 in.
