Here'a picture of the sander with the lamination sander setup.

Nice. Is that an aluminum sheet for the top? Also do you use sleds with that setup or just send the laminate though?

I have two of these sanders and they are fantastic. Also check out the warranty.

It is an aluminum sheet on MDF and yes I use sleds I've built. And as JamesV mentioned they have a lifetime warranty

I bought the rigid combo 6 years ago. I already had a Jet 6" Spindle sander so i have never used the spindles on the Rigid.. It is a handy machine, a little under powered though and mine does vibrate..keep a good sharp belt on it and it will grind fiberglass limbs nicely. After using it for a year..I bought a used Grizzly 6"x80" edge sander and added a pattern sander to the motor end..The Rigid is very light and portable so i still use it on some projects.

Thanks. You guys have helped me make up mind mind to spend a little more and get the Ridgid. I think it will be a good little machine for my limited use.

Last time I used mine it was stalling out badly. Just didn't have the power it had. Been using mine about 3 years but still not that many hours on it. Need to check it out but it may have been due to the extension cord in use.

It is a very good system IMO. A big step up from the drum on a drill press!

Yeah light gauge extension cord can cause problems. I only use 12awg cords and even large power tools work fine.

I picked up a like new one on Craigs list for $125. Only one of the spindle drums had been used. He must not have liked it. I love it and use it for knife making all the time. Shaping scales and handles, not metal work.Ken
