Want to buy Oscillating Spindle Sander

I am looking for a oscillating spindle sander used, or a really great deal on a like new one. I like old tools, Delta, Rockwell, Craftman, But will take what I cant get. I have one job to do so I am not looking for a investment, just a tool.

I've had one and it's an excellent piece of equipment. Lightweight and very portable but also very stable on its own. Still $199 at Home Depot.

I went to Home Depot and looked at the one they sell and it is Nice. I may have to buy it, but I was hoping to find a good used one for half HD new one. Thanks for your replies, but if you found me a good used one, you would be my hero. I saw a few on ebay at a good price, but shipping would eat me up.

Not sure if they still have it, but HF was selling a Delta I think it was, oscillating spindle sander for like $119.00 or so...

Just a quick word of advice if you buy the one from HD. It is a really nice sander but it has a small drawback that you need to watch out for. The drum that is uses is made of aluminum and the shaft is steel. What will happen over time you will get some electrolisis from it and the drum will seize up on the shaft then you can't get it off. To prevent this take a small amount of antiseize and coat the spindle before you use it. I am an old mechanic and if you didn't use that on spark plug going into an aluminum head the next trip out you would be putting in heli-coils on the car. (what a pain that can be). Other than that it is a great little sander for the price, just remember to keep the spindle lubed with that anti-seize. I guess that I should mention that I worked at HD in the tool department so I have first hand knowledge of this.

I bought a Performax at Menards for $89.00 NEW and this one has a cast iron table( the max size is 3" and the dust collector works great with a 2" vacuum connection. I use it all of the time and no longer use my drill press with a drum sander. The $89.00 was the sale price.
