        Comments about JBOS-5 115V 1/2 HP 1-Phase Bench Top Oscillating Spindle Sander:

        We use the sander on a daily basis in the production of customer displays for our business. this was a replacement for a less expensive version and we were very pleased with differences as far as power, weight, metal rather than plastic.
        We were a bit disappointed that a 3" spindle and plate had to be ordered extra, and the items were not sold as a kit even as each one had to be ordered separately; and from two sources. I say raise the price a bit and include it as well, it should make the customers happier with the machine.

            I would have given this product 5 stars except for the packaging. Not sufficent package material to protect the bottom as this arrived with some minor damage, feet bent in as it had been dropped. i was able to bend them out with out to much effort.

                  There is no stand for that unit, it is made to use on a bench.

                  Many of the woodworking specialty stores carry generic stands for portable tools. Try welding supply stores as they often have stands for grinders that might fit the bill. In any case, I suspect you'll have to improvise a bit. You may have to make a plywood top for a generic stand and then bolt or clamp the sander to it. Cheers!

                  There is not a stand made for this model, it is meant to be used on a bench top.
