Shop Fox W1730 Oscillating Edge Sander

This sander features a 6-inch x 89-inch belt that oscillates 3/4-inch vertically at 52 times per minute! It also has a quick release belt tension lever, a 0 to 90 degree tilting graphite-coated platen, and a 2 HP 240V motor. The W1730 has a 26-7/8-inch x 12-inch cast iron main table for edge sanding and a 10-inch x 11-1/2-inch cast iron auxiliary table for spindle sanding. Other features include a 180 degree adjustable miter gauge, two 4-inch dust ports, a powder-coated finish, and a removable fence.

Vertical or Horizontal Sanding

The sanding angle of the oscillating edge sander can be adjusted between 0 and 90-degrees to provide horizontal, vertical or variable angle sanding. Additionally, the table moves both vertically and horizontally to accommodate various workpieces shapes and thicknesses and to allow appropriate alignment with the sanding surface.

Spindle Sanding Attachment for Contour Sanding

The W1730 comes with a spindle sanding attachment for sanding curved surfaces. The included sanding drums measure 1-1/2, 2, and 3-inches in diameter and are matched with three table inserts for tight clearance between the table and drum. The spindle table provides workpiece support for drum sanding operations. Although the sanding drum does not oscillate along with the belt, the vertically adjustable table accommodates various sanding operations and allows for movement to reduce spot wear on sanding sleeves and drums. The optional Shop Fox D3741 Auxiliary Downdraft Table improves dust collection when workpieces are sanded on the spindle drum or end of the sanding belt.

Built to Last

The Shop Fox W1730 Oscillating Edge Sander is a true heavyweight in its class and has been specially designed to provide many years of trouble-free service with regular maintenance. Close attention to detail, ruggedly built parts, and a discerning quality control program assure safe and reliable operation.

Verified Purchase
My Powermatic spindle sander quit oscillating and I ordered the W1730 and the Jet JOVS-10 with the idea that I would keep the machine that would give me the most utility. The Jet arrived first and I had to send it back because it was damaged. The Fox arrived in great shape. This was my first Fox tool and I was apprehensive. I was very pleasantly suprised when I uncrated the machine. One small nick on the motor cover was the only damage I saw and was not large enough to worry about. The finish is very good and appears to be on par with Jet, Delta, and Powermatic. Everything works as it should, the tension mechanism, the stock table, the platen, the adjustable spindle sander table, the motor, and switch. This is a very nice machine and after only two weeks I can tell that it will be used as much as the jointer. Smooth running with excellent results at a reasonable price. The fit, finish, and operation will not disappoint and if you have never used an edge sander you will be suprised at what a nice addition to a shop it is.

A few things would be nice on this machine. If the platen had stops and 45 and 90 degrees that would be a plus. Not a deal breaker because most work is 90 degrees. It would also be nice if the machine was a little longer but then price would increase.

This machine will not replace a good spindle sander because the spindle does not oscillate. The stock table must be moved up and down. It is ok for small items but I can see where a large project requiring the spidle attachment could destroy the sanding belt. The question I have now is do I re-order the JOVS-10 or do I purchase the Shop Fox which is $200 less? Even though I started this with the idea of getting more utility for my money, I am very happy on how it turned out.
