Bench sanders often combine more than one type of power sander in a stationary tool that’s mounted on a stand or workbench.

Bench sanders are perfect for sanding smaller pieces and detail work, such as furniture or trimwork. Bench sanders can include:

  • Belt sanders
  • Disk sanders
  • Spindle sanders

Sandpaper: Bench sanders require belts, disks, and sleeves sized to fit the sander.
