Oscillating Belt Spindle sander

If it looks the same, it is Kelly, I have learned that over time. When I look through the Grizzly catalog, I see many of the same machines in that catalog I see elsewhere, just a different color. So it comes down to paint job most of the time, folks have to decided what color motif they want in their shop!

The ridgid is in my sights for the next tool purchase. 

 

I thought I would tell others about this and get their take on what they see

I don't own any Rigid Kelly, not because of anything negative, but when I tooled up my own shop, Rigid wasn't really a color seen in the box stores at the time. That being said, it's good stuff, good retailers with a "return anything for any reason" policy.

The one you are looking at, is it the belt/spindle, or spindle only?

The rigid has been a good tool for me. Saved me hours of sanding on my bandsaw boxes. Of course, if I could cut like Jesse, there wouldn't have been a need.

Some of my boxes are 6" to 7" thick. So, I had a machinist make an extension for the spindle. Worked like a charm.

It is the belt/spindle combo. I have only heard good things about it

The Rigid was one of the first machines I bought when we retired in 99 or close to that date. It is really good because of the belt and drums. But it only has short drums and I needed 9" drums on my jewelry boxes. So I went with the Grizzly. It does the job . I told Tony from Florida to come by and we would talk price for the Rigid, he never came so Kelly if you come by I will talk price with you. I don't like to sell anything unless the person comes and trys it out before they decide

Oh , thats the reason the jewelry boxes are a hair less than 9 inches deep, it and the 14" bandsaws capacity.
