The Grizzly vertical spindle sander is for sanding curved surfaces. The machine contains a 1HP motor and has 10 different sanding spindles ranging from 1/4" to 4" in diameter. The cast iron table has an opening that allows the spindles to oscillate up and down. The oscillating action will give you a smooth sanded surface. The 4" dust port connects easily to any dust collector. Used to remove material from wood, as well as squaring to create straight pieces.

General Procedure

Insert text


There are several hazards you need to be aware of when using a spindle sander.

  • Never make contact with the rotating spindle. The sand paper is very aggressive and could cause serious injury.
  • The spindle is rotating at a high rate of speed and can grab your work piece.
  • Hold onto material firmly and keep it against the table. This will help prevent the material from getting pulled out of your hands. If material catches on the spindle it can starts rotating quickly and create a dangerous situation.

General maintenance

As sanding sleeves are used they will "gum up" with saw dust. If not removed, the saw dust will harden and reduce the life of the sanding sleeve. As needed, a abrasive cleaner should be used on the sleeves.
