WEN Model # 6523

Now like the WEN 6552T thickness planner I been looking at the WEN Oscillating Belt and Spindle Sander Model# 6523. I am doing alot of research on reviews and such and also come to the conclusion that it seems a pretty good deal and about 60-70% less that others out there.

Does anyone own one and if do what are your thoughts after using it.

WEN Model # 6523

Canít help with the 6525 but I just purchased the WEN 6510 oscillating spindle sander after reading what seemed like hundreds of spindle sander reviews. I purchased the WEN over other popular brands based on reviews and price. Time will tell if it will hold up but I expect it will.

I used it the same day it arrived to sand the edges of some walnut and cherry cutting boards. Worked great and was very easy to use.

That looks pretty smooth. What grit did you use?

240

The WEN didnít come with sanding cylinders so I ordered a set with three different grits. 80, 120 and 240.
