Anyone use the Ridgid Belt/Spindle sander?
I am in the market for a spindle sander and like the dual use capability of
I generally only buy Delta, Jet, Makita, PC, etc. so I am a little concerned
about the quality of Ridgid.
Any thoughts on or experience with this unit?
Being a home shop and only occastional use, I chose the Ridgid as the best
features for dollars. There are ones with bigger tables, but cost quite a
bit more. Mine runs smooth, and it easy to change over. I have not
complaints with it. My only problem is remembering to turn on the vacuum
before starting to sand, hahaha.
PS: Mine is grey, not the new orange ones.
I have to agree with the other posts. For the money it is a great piece of
equip. I picked mine up at the HD 20% sale. I have the gray colored one as
well. Belt to spindle changeovers are a snap. The only thing I found was
that it is a little noisy mechanically. Then again it has an oscillating,
spinning belt, so I guess that is to be expected. I use muffs in the shop
anyway. Very happy with mine.
