Minicraft Bench Sander
« on: September 21, 2013, 09:01:35 AM »

Trying to purchase a Minicraft Bench Sander, trawled the web with no luck. Most companies out of stock or stopped selling.  {:-{
Can any one help?
I know proxon have their own make but its a bit pricey.
Does any body have one to sell or advice where I can get hold of one.
Thanks
John

I'm pretty sure they are no longer made. Your only hope is a second hand one.  They do come up on Ebay, but usually cost as much as a new one.
