Bridgewood - OVS-5 Oscillating Spindle Sander
Bridgewood's oscillating spindle sander features a tilting table and steel base that raises the table height to 39 in. from the floor
Nothing beats an oscillating spindle sander for sanding curves. The up-and-down movement helps keep the sanding sleeve from clogging. Sanding goes faster, the abrasive lasts longer, and there’s less risk of heat buildup. We tested seven sanders that sell for $140 to $640. All performed their primary task very well and most were compact enough to sit on a workbench.
The Bridgewood OVS-5 oscillating spindle sander features a tilting cast-iron table . In functionality and quality, it was very similar to comparable models from Jet and Grizzly, and middle of the road in price. At 18 in. tall, it was not comfortable for me to use as a benchtop machine, but an included steel base raises it to a comfortable work height.
