Anyone own the Clayton Spindle Sander?
I am contemplating purchasing a spindle sander, and would like to go with the Clayton. It seems to be well built, well reviewed, made in USA with a Baldor motor. I own several newer Powermatic machines and have nothing but positive comments about them, also a JET dust collector which works well…so I would consider the JET, but the Clayton, just seems to be the one calling. My problem is that when I called a supplier that I trust to get a price, they said they don’t stock it, but will order it. They don’t stock it because they have had a few problems with runnout, motors etc. Granted, they said they were fixed promptly, but I don’t like hearing about multiple problem for a machine in this price range. I would consider the JET, but the table seems a bit small. I could probably find a used stationary JET (big table) for about what a new Clayton would cost. Any comments? Thanks in advance.
