  • Sander

    Went to the woodworking show in Columbus, OH today. Ridgid was setup. Picked up one of the oscilating belt/spindle sanders for $149. Also got to talk to one of the main tool techs. Asked about the wheel problems with the Bandsaws that so many people post about. Not sure what to think, he said they have not had hardly any returns or warrenty claims about out of balance wheels and tires that wont stay on. (biggest complaints on here) He explained the only real balance and vibration problem they have had is due to the belt and pully systems. They are in the process of changing them to the serpentein (flat) type. He said the 3650 originally had a vibration problem and that is what fixed it.We talked about several issues and I learned quite a bit from him.
