    You want both the spindle sander for the inside curves and the belt sander for the outside curves and flat areas.

    I would vote the oscillating spindle sander for now. The parts you would use the belt sander for can be sanded by hand or with a handheld random orbit sander. Not ideal, but could be made to work. Only the spindles will get inside the curves.

    I think you should get the spindle sander. It has a table so your templates won't have angles in the sides that would be bad for flush cutting with the router. Also, I think that if you have a belt sander you could get by for now by just clamping it down on a table and using it like you would the edge sander on the ROSS.

    Thanks guys.

    I'll go with spindle sander.

    Old boy that link is great. That just saved me quite a few $$

    Cheers

    You could probably also consider the Triton T31BD 3-in-one belt, disc, and spindle sander. Not as elegant as the Ross, but it shares some features and has the disc sander as a bonus.

    I got the very same belt/disc sander recently from Carbatec and I'm happy with it. I will be getting the spindle sander soon too. So I suppose my advice is: Get both!
