I am trying to fix the pitting in my grandfather’s cleaver. I also want to create new scales for other knives. Is this a proper tool for sanding metal

This can work for the pitting but depending if you want with the scales I would go with a belt or oscillating spindle sander

Nice Belt & Disc Combo
Just got this unpackaged today. It took all of about 5 minutes to have it ready to be plugged in. There were 4 bolts and a twist knob and had it turned on. I did a couple of tests on some wood I had laying around. There is plenty of power on this rig and I put quite a bit of pressure down on the belt and it did not slow or stall. Will have plenty of hours of use to get out of this one. Very satisfied.
by Bookboy22
Not amazing but not terrible for the price point
Its okay for light work and small to medium jobs, but I wouldn't have this running constant for more than an hour or so, If that. After maybe 20-30 mins use you can feel the heat radiating off of the gear box. The main issue i have is that the belt runs against the right side no matter what you do, even after moving it the belt slides to that same spot once turned on. So I reccomend having an extra belt or two in whatever grit you use most on hand just in case. Annoying for sure but can be overlooked if you only need a few minutes use out of it at a time. There's a guard you're supposed to install over the belt and when you do its either too tight and keeps the belt and disc from spinning or, the belt runs against it so you're sanding a metal plate aswell as your piece of stock.. Instructions are also terrible, not helpful in the least. I put it together by following the picture on the box and have an extra piece i don't even know what to do with so heres hoping its not important.

Very Pleased
Working well, Using the 80 to 120 grit belts and discs covers my needs at this time. Currently the belts and discs are available locally, which is always a plus.

Great size and features
I bought this because I do a number of DIY projects. This was a perfect fit with my other Ryobi tools.
by Alilley
A good system for a great price
Got this today, my old one went up in smoke, not a Ryobi. After research, I think this was the best machine in this price range. I own a lot of Ryobi tools and happy to add this one to the shop. Does everything I need it to do, plus has a vac port. Wish it worked better, but this is the first one I’ve had that had one at all, so a nice improvement.

My old sander went up in smoke this morning, put it out to the curb and started my research for the new one. This one won out, did everything I needed to do, used a common belt and disk and all for a very good price. When I got it home, set it up and hooked up the shop vac system and went to town on it. Worked as well as my old one, plus it has a vac port, worked ok, my last one didn’t even have one. I think a very good system for a DIY shop.

Good DIY tool
I have this tool for some time now and the best thing in it is the dual sand, disc and band, sanding is getting easier when I don’t have the sander on my hand, my problem is the dust port doesn’t really work, dusk goes all over. Almost every one of my projects has to get to the sander, store this sander is not too bad as you ll see on the picture. I’m happy with this tool and I’ll keep using it.
by Hitman11
Decent power & qaulity. Perfect for DIY projects
I have owned this for about 6 months and have found it indispensable for small sanding and grinding projects around the garage. I recently made a ATV rack tray out of some 1/4 aluminum diamond plate I had leftover from another project. Once it was cut the edges needed to be smoothed.The Ryboi sander was perfect to hone down the sharp edges. The adjustable belt on top was perfect for getting just the right angle I needed since the tray had many irregular curves. The unit has enough power for me and my small DIY projects. I am impressed.
by Jakobe
Good value sander
This sander is great at the price point but does have its shortcomings. The 2 main issues with this sander is the dust collection and the belt sander has some tracking issues. Even with those issues i still think this sander is a great value for a DIYer or hobbyist.

Impressive, durable tool
I purchased this unit specifically for sanding and shaping blocks for Giant Jenga sets, popular items in the forever summer we have in Florida. Prior to purchasing, I used the hand held ONE+ belt sander for this application. What used to take me at least 2-3 hours, now takes me 45 minutes or less. On days where we are producing 5,6,7+ sets this little machine is a huge time savor, and one of the best investments I made to the shop. I have had this unit for a little over a year, and have run it for hours at a time with no breaks, and it is still going strong. Unbelievable quality, fantastic price, the only complaint I have is in the belt that it comes with. Mine was chewed up pretty quickly.
