  • ridgid 3'X21" belt sander vibration

    I just bought this sander and started sanding a piece of 2x8 fir.
    There is alot of vibration from the front of the sander ( almost a rattleing noise).
    I dont see anything loose.
    If I take pressure off the front of the sander it seems to go away. But If I hold it properly the vibration doesnt stop?
    Is this normal for this sander?

    I wouldn't consider any vibration from a belt sander normal. With the belt off can you move the front pully from side to side or front to back as if trying to make it wobble on its shaft? if so you have a bad bearing or shaft.
