I was gifted a Craftsman Oscillating Spindle Sander today, It’s a 1/2hp Model 113.

Unfortunately it’s missing the 3/4”, 1”, 1.5”, and 3” hard rubber spindles. After looking around I have found that there are no parts available for this particular model.

Does anyone know if there are spindles that will work with this sander? Or if there is some sort of work around?

If I was you, I would regift it. Just kidding. I would begin by researching who manufactured the unit for Craftsmen and go from there.

Just wondering out loud if the Ridgid ones would fit. It would be easier to find those. When the ridgid one goes on sale at HD it’s a decent price. May be worth keeping the craftsman parts and buying a Ridgid. Love mine.

Show us the first 3 numbers on the model number plate. If it is 113, it was made by Emerson-same maker of the Ridgid stuff (I think).

I think that’s the one I have, and you left off a few digits on the model number. Mine is 113.225906. The spindles will be hard to find, adn I do think the Rigid ones will fit. You can always take them back if not. But I bought some Ryobi drums at HD and they worked on mine.

How are the drums mounted? Lee Valley had drums that would work in a drill press using a standard Jacob’s chuck. I have a set and they’ve been pretty useful.
