Great small parts shaper! 6/24/2018

I bought this machine to replace an old Ryobi spindle sander of the same design, that had finally given up the ghost after years of faithful service. The Grizzly G0538 is the only spindle sander of this design that I know of now. I hope Grizzly keeps this machine in the lineup for a long time, because it is so jig-able.
I jigged this sander up with an adjustable hinged fence, which enables me to thickness sand small parts, like binding strips, bridge blanks, and even headstocks for the guitars I build. It is ideal for this purpose, as well as the regular shaping operations you use a spindle sander for. In order for it to work well as a thickness sander, the spindle has to oscillate with ZERO wobble; and this one runs true. My parts come out the other end at perfectly uniform thickness.
I made the fence out of 3/4 MDF, and it attaches to the top of the sander with threaded inserts and knobs with 1/4-20 threads. This is an easy modification to make, since the top of the spindle sander is made of MDF, and drilling it for threaded inserts to attach your shop-made jigs is quick and easy. (If you do this, be sure to stabilize the drilled holes with plenty of CA Superglue before you screw in the threaded inserts.)
A couple other pluses with this machine are, it runs much quieter than my old Ryobi; and the dust collection port under the table works really well with a shop-vac or 3 dust collector hose attached.
I use this machine every day, for all sorts of shaping and thicknessing operations, so, yeah, Im definitely getting a lot of bang for the buck out of this one!


Great machine,it has been working very steady since purchase.

Great and (very wise) addition to my shop 4/6/2018

Nice product! Nice price! 2/14/2018

I used one of these at a friends home. He had a harbor freight oscillating sander and returned it because of the loudness of the motor.
The G0538 was nice to work with and I like the one I purchased.

I purchased my spindle sander a couple of days after Christmas and have used it continuously since. For making patterns, it is essential. You can glue the pattern to the wood, cut it out on the band saw, leaving the line, and sand to the line and virtually split the line. You can control the wood so much easier than using a disc sander or belt sander. I highly recommend the product and like all of my other Grizzly tools, performs great.

replaced my old unit 1/16/2018

My woodshop has about 85% Grizzly in it, from over many years. Highly recommend Grizzly to fellow woodworkers and young upcoming woodworkers. I am 71 work part-time at
Ace Hardware in Troy Il. I see and help a lot of people every day. When it involves woodworking, tools, hardware, electrical they ask for me. I also share tips with fellow wood-
workers. I recommend Grizzly.

It appeared on the picture of the oscillating sander that the structure was metal. If I had know that it was not metal, I probably would not have
purchased it. The machine works very well and I intend to keep it and use it. I dislike plastic.

Good Product for the money. 12/6/2017

I hate sanding and this little machine helps me get through the process much easier. It really is a good machine for what it is made to do. With so many sizes available to choose from there are many choices to sand with the spindles. Good machine!

Great tool! 9/20/2017

I bought this to replace an older sander by another company because it had the same size table and all th jigs I made work on this new one. The Grizzly model is much quieter and smoother so I couldn't be happier with it.

Great value & pricepoint! 8/9/2017

I did a lot of searching before purchasing this sander. I needed this machine for a very specific job in my shop and I was not disappointed! Very solid and well built, should serve me well for years.

Everything I was hoping for. 1/26/2017

I really like this sander. It;s quiet, works well, and dust collection is very efficient when attached to my shop vac.
