Customer Questions & Answers

The tighting nut just spins

I installed the belt sand to my Oscillating Edge/Belt Spindle Sander. I am finished using it and wanted to remove it but all the unlocking nuts just spins and I cant remove the belt sander. Does any one have any ideas on how to remove this nut?
Asked by: Roger
Hopefully by now (2.5 yrs later) you finally figured out you were turning it backwards. It's a LH thread. That said - if it really 'just spins' that means it's stripped. The nut/ the shaft/ or both. Doesn't surprise me - cheap plastic machine made in China - but Ridgid does claim 'lifetime' warranty so let's see if they make good on it. I'd take it back to HD and demand a refund. They might only give you a store credit but I've never had a problem with them ever even questioning me. They sell so much of this stuff - what's one refund here or there...

How are other owners keeping the sleeves from slipping off the larger drums?

I have been relatively successful with slipping carefully measured scraps of paper or fine grit sandpaper between the rubber and the sleeve, but the 2" sleeve is driving me nuts. I think the Diablo Sleeves are a few thousandths larger. Give me some of your ideas.
Asked by: OneCoolWoodshop
As of January 2017, the Diablo sanding sleeves are still over-sized for the larger drums. I used a sheet of printer paper two layers thick in between the drum and the sleeve and it works, but I should not have to deal with such a hack. I purchased the Powertec sleeves from Homedepot.com and had them shipped to the store. Those fit better than the Diablos but the largest one still requires quite a bit of tightening of the drum nut to prevent it from slipping. One other thing I found that helps a little is to put the washer for the 1/2" sleeve on the spindle before putting on the drum, (the same as you would when using the 1/2" sleeve alone), then use the appropriate washer on top of the drum as well, This creates slightly more pressure on the drum causing it to expand just a little more.

Can it grind metal

Asked by: UncleLogan
This is the best tool in my shop. If you mount a good belt you can sharpen chisels and lath tools scary sharp. The belt has no perceptible wear and the machine is loafing compared to sanding a big width of wood. If you look for a high end tool sharpener it will be a belt sander for 4 times the price. I have had this tool for at least 15 years. No problems of any kind. I discovered the sharpening capability when I got my lath. Looked for a way to sharpen turning tools and found that all the tools that gave you the correct angle and allowed curved cutters to move on the abrasive where way out of my price league. I built angle jigs that fit in the miter slot of the infeed table for each of the tools and was astounded at how easy it was to put an edge on the lathe tools. The angle setting feature of the infeed table allows for compound angles which you need in some lathe tools. So then I built a jig for my chisels and can now shave with them. Also I regularly clean edges and round corners on aluminum sheet up to 1/4 inch. It will put a bevel edge or clean burrs on aluminum and brass. All of the folks who said you can not do this should try it once it will open up a new world for projects you can do in your shop. This tool is best value for performance since the hammer.

It has a nice weight to it, was easy to set up. I've only used it a little, but has performed great. If you order it online, getting the lifetime warranty can be a hassle. I thought I had provided the correct info but then got an email stating i hadn't. this is what they said: Unfortunately, we encountered an issue when cross referencing your product and/or proof of purchase information with our records and were unable to upgrade your products to Lifetime Service Agreement (LSA) status. This is what they want to have MAILED to them:1. Original receipt,2. Print out this email showing your customer ID number. One would think I could scan the info and email it to them, Plus they said it could take up to 8 weeks. 5 star for product 1 star for warranty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Purchased at my local Home Depot, and when I got it home and inspected the parts, I found one of ... Purchased at my local Home Depot, and when I got it home and inspected the parts, I found one of them was broken. There is a tab on the bottom of the belt sander attachment, it locates the non drive end in the housing, the two screws that secure the tab were stripped out. One was in the bottom of the bag when I took it out of the box, the other was in the housing, but it was stripped and would not hold the tab tightly. The rest of the parts and tool were in good condition. Since this part did not effect the use of the spindle sander I used that working on two knives. This portion of the sander works satisfactory. It seems to have adequate power for the projects I have used the spindle sander for. Unsure how that belt assembly functions. I really like the tool, but am not happy with the lack of quality control, it casts doubts about the rest of the parts internal and unseen. The orange housing is plastic and does feel somewhat cheap. The plastic insert that covers the opening the belt sander occupies is leveled to the table top with screws. These are coarse threaded, almost like wood screws, into the plastic legs and are screwed up or down to make the insert flush with top. While I was able to get this adjusted, the screws are very tight and I don't think they would last too many adjustments. This part would be better made of metal. I have given this product a 2 of 5 stars for the lack of quality control and the plastic parts. I would have given it a 3 if the tool did not come with inoperable parts from the factory sealed box. It is easy to use and has the features I wanted, but it is not an exceptionally well made tool. For my hobby use, it at 10 days in (for just the oscillating spindle part) seems to be doing well. Not sure how long it will last, just has a lightweight feel to it. Lastly, this is not about the product, but the customer service that Ridgid provided me is poor. The day I opened the item and found the issue, I called their service number. I spoke to a Will. He was very friendly and seemed helpful. I described the issue and he gave me his phone number to text him images of the issue. He said he knew what was broken and would ship a replacement the next day. I should expect it in a week. He did not give me a ticket number for the issue or email me confirmation. But, I felt that the issue would be resolved. Ten days had passed and the part was not delivered, so I sent Will a text message and asked about the delay. He said he was off that day, but would handle it the next. Since I was 'texting' a customer service agent on their personal phone, I felt it would be better to write for an update on Ridgid's customer support page. I did not get a response that day or the next, so I called their 1-800-474-3443. Here is where the customer service went bad. I spoke to a 'Maryann' (Not really sure, she did not say it clearly). I described what was happening and she said that yes Will had placed the order. But 4 days after our initial call. I asked her where the item was and she said it was in transit, and would be two weeks for delivery. Her tone and word choice conveyed that there was not a problem. I told her that contradicted Will saying it would be a week. I asked for a tracking number and she gave that to me. Then, since again, I had no written confirmation of my issue and it was over 12 days since I purchased the item, I asked for a ticket number of the issue. The lady then told me there was no issue. I said having a part arrive broken wasn't an issue, to which she replied that the shipped part took care of the issue. I told her I would like some kind of ticket number and she told me the tracking number was all I needed. I thanked her and asked for her supervisor. She refused and said no one there could help me more than she was. She finally gave me the order number, but when asked a second time, "You won't let me speak with a supervisor" she said no. One agent with Ridgid was polite and helpful, if somewhat vague on the actually time for shipping. The other was rude and very unhelpful. Refused to let me speak with anyone else. I hope that this is an isolated issue with both the tool and the customer support.

It switches drum to belt sander in a snap. Be sure to buy a sandpaper eraser to make your sand paper last longer. I have this hooked up to a shop vac and keeps dust to a minimum. I have had this for 2 years now and love it I like to write reviews after using things for a while to be sure they are what they are. excellent product plenty of power and the safety guide works great to rest pieces on so they don't rip out of your hands.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Devective unit out of the box (motor locked up) I experienced the same problem most of the other 1 star reviewers did. The motor was locked up when I tried to start the unit. I tried to start it without the belt assembly to make sure that the motor was the problem and not the belt itself. I returned the product 2 hours after purchase and I am highly disappointed about the quality control.

I brought it home and the motor hummed but did not spin. if i tipped it on its back it worked. But if I turned it off and back on it would hum and not spin. I took it back to home depot and they gladly exchanged it. I brought the new one home and it worked for exactly 2 days and a total of two projects. Now its just like the first one, it hums but wont spin. http://www.woodtalkonline.com/topic/19726-ridgid-oscillating-beltspindle-sander-trouble/?page=1 Do not buy this trouble.

I have had it for at least 15 years with no problems. Every shop should have one. It works not only on wood but light weight metals as well. I sharpen all of my cutting tools, including lathe cutters with this tool. The control of angle and power of the belt and drum make this tool is best value for performance since the hammer.

It is priced very well compared to similar units from other manufacturers and much more versatile. Belt to spindle is a quick change. After using this thing for awhile, I would hate to be without it. I would highly recommend it.
