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.

Oscillating Edge/Belt Spindle Sander is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 483.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Parts not available I bought this sander about 6months ago and was Missing the belt adaptor when I went to order a new one they are not available! And while I was looking I noticed that there were a lot of other parts that had dead part numbers. Great sander but if replacement parts aren't available while the sander is still being sold, you are buying a lemon

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but quality is not up to standard After using it for a few times the knob came loose on the sanding belt and it bent the frame. Now it has excessive vibration and the belt will not stay aligned. I still use it but with some frustration It could be a great product if it was better built when I get time I am going to try and straighten the parts. I will probably replace it with a more durable machine as I do a lot of woodwork. .

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.

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.
