    Spindle sander?

    Yeah I noticed the HP difference and was thinking that 1/5 is really kinda wimpy. Would be afraid of bogging it down too easily.

    Spindle sander?

    Oh thanks for that. I see that is the case now. Looks like I can order the Shop Fox through Northern for the same price as the Grizzly and get free shipping too... hmmm :rolleyes: And now I see the Wen has 2 years also and is $30 less AND has free shipping... gettin' close to a Bingo here!

    Spindle sander?

    Yeah and I think the Shop Fox on the Grizzly site is the same unit too.

    Spindle sander?

    Thanks for the input guys! The Wen and one of the Grizzly's (https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-Benchtop-1-2-HP-Oscillating-Spindle-Sander/G0739) look very similar. I wonder if they come off the same assembly line... ? If they're the same machine, then I think price and shipping will win...

    Spindle sander?

    I searched before I posted and didn't see a thread on this... did I miss it somewhere? Thank you all for any input on what to buy - or more importantly, what NOT to buy. I'm planning on using it mostly for shaping handles.

    Boxes, not so much. But here's a link to sleeves and tip guards: https://usaknifemaker.com/shop-categories/sheaths/sleeves-guards-tips.html

    Working on my leathercraft skills...

    There is a thread going on in another FB group about welts and stories of guys who have cut through their stitching and into their hands while putting a knife in a sheath. Both of these have welts so the stitching and lacing is through 3 layers of leather and protected from being cut by the blade.

    Thanks! They were both glued. The fillet sheath is hand stitched. The other one is just glued and laced, no sewing/stitching.
