Questions & Answers

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
I. Watched a video review and it addressed two issues. First was about the top nut on the belt set-up getting to tight. He addressed it by saying since thr thread is left hand and the belt turned in the direction which further tightened it, the used need to only snug it and when it runs it will further tighten. When removing, it will be tight....squeeze the 4x24 belt then the nut rembering it’s a left hand thread. Second item addressed was exactly what you have as a problem. He STATED THE FIX WAS to squeeze the sanding tube and THEN tighten the nut. When he, the video person, did so it totally fixed the issue you and others talked about. Hope this helps all who have had these issues.

Whats the sanding belt size

Asked by: ME
4x24" - same as most portable belt sanders so there are lots available anywhere and at reasonable prices.

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...

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.

Customer Reviews

Oscillating Edge/Belt Spindle Sander is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 653.

Reading some reviews I thought I ran the risk of it being underpowered but it has plenty for what I use it for. I only bogged it down one time and I was pressing pretty hard using a 120gt belt, but it's not something that would prevent me from recommending or buying again. Dust collection could be better but it does do something. Sometimes the reverse thread nut where the attachments screw is difficult to remove. The work surface is a good size and I like the positive steps that it has. Good weight to it, feels like a quality product. For my needs, (average garage woodworker/diyer) I am very happy with purchase especially considering my previous set up was a drum sander bit on a drill press. I would buy it again and recommed it. It came with an 80 grit belt which its nice but I also also purchased a separate 120 grit belt to give me a headstart in the finishing of projects. I've had it for about 4 weeks now and have about 10 hrs on it.

I've worked with my hands (and brain) all my life so you get used to doing things here in the US a certain way. Backwards threads and I don't get along. I broke my initial unit myself due to these backwards threads and me not paying attention which I had for 3 years and worked flawlessly. Just one day, got in a hurry and needed to change belt for spindle and cross-threaded the darn thing. Every other table top sander of this nature, the belt direction is reversed, therefore the threads are lefty-loosey, righty-tighty. Anyways, been an excellent unit and can't complain about it. There are very few out there with the design style of this device and that style is a huge PLUS for me and why I purchased another. Slapped on a pair of Ryobi miter stand rails and it works perfectly on the miter stand also.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Quality control/ customer support I have had this unit for about a year and was fairly satisfied with the unit until it started running rough. Because it had not been registered by the original purchaser, who barely used it, I knew there would be no warranty, so I started diagnosing myself. Upon removing the rubber cap covering the bearing at the top of the motor, I found completely dry oil wicks covered in black dust...indicating that there was never any lubricating oil added, causing the bushing and shaft to wear to the point of ruining the unit. I informed Ridgid of this obvious manufacturing defect, and got the stock answer....not registered, not covered. As an owner of several Ridgid tools, I will have to reevaluate my purchasing choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased in 2001, finally wore it out... As a custom cabinetmaker, licensed remodeler, and lifelong woodworker I needed the ability to shape small and large wood pieces on-site as well as in my small (home) shop. For 14 years my Rigid Oscillating Sander traveled in our work van year round. It operated day in-day out in weather conditions the Rigid Manufacturers would probably cringe at, and, along with my use, it survived hundreds of imaginative wood, plastic and metal projects thought up by my kids and grandkids. Sanded edges have always remained crisp and true, dust collection was efficient, and belt and spindle changes were quick and easy. Unfortunately, it did not survive yesterday's drop off the edge of an unfinished deck to the concrete patio 18ft below. Ah well, work happens. (Did I mention I'll pick up a new sander at the store enroute to a job site this morning?) I recommend the Rigid Oscillating Sander to professional and hobby woodworkers as a time and shop space saver. Good value for a good price. gg

I don't think I paid as much as it is going for now, but it is worth every penny. I went through several belt sanders before I ended up with this one. It is build AMAZINGLY well from head to foot and works so well I couldn't work without it. I really hope it lasts for a long time because there isn't anything else I have tried as good. WORTH EVERY PENNY

Have used it about 10 hours since I received it.The vacuum port broke off almost right away so I used duct tape and made a brace to hold it up and it is working now. Hence 4 stars instead of five.For the money it is a good poduct.

I ordered a Triton spindle sander but it was shipped on a slow boat from china and couldn't wait anymore so I purchased this unit. I am glad I did because it works very well. Switching from spindle to belt is fast and not any trouble at all. I have used a total of about ten hours so far and have not had any issues.
