  • ridgid 3x21 sander

    I just bought the Ridgid 3"x21" belt sander, and starting sanding a 2x8 piece of fir.
    Although it sands nice, there is a ton of vibration on the sander.
    It seem to be at the front of the tool.
    Is this typical for this sander?

    I don't have that particular sander, but there shouldn't be any vibration, IMO. I have a very old, Ryobi built (mid-1970's) 3 x 21 belt sander and there is no vibration at all. I wonder if there is something wrong with the drive belt or if one of belt spindles is out of balance?

    If it's a new purchase, I think I'd take it back and exchange if for another.

    I hope this helps,
