Summary

I really like the WEN Spindle Sander Model 6510.  This spindle sander is easy to assemble, use, and includes a great variety of spindles.  It’s well priced for what is included and should last for years.  The heavy cast iron table just looks and feels solid.  My only criticism is that this product appears to sold under MANY names.  So you need to do a little shopping to ensure you get the best price.
