Hey! that looks like a craftsman… looks like the one i have.. that was given to me.. i think thay are passalong band saws. because the guy that give it to me said that when i got rid of it i had to give it to someone else worthy.

You will find uses for the Rigid belt / spindle sander that you never knew existed. Use mine several times a week.

Thanks for sharing.

Good Luck!

Nice acqusitions. Any opinions on the Rigid belt sander. I’ve been considering one for quite some time now. Mainly for the spindle sander. How does it work in that capacity?

It works great. I read all the reviews on LJ and for the money you cant beat it for what it will accomplish.

I have that Rigid sander. I haven’t used it a lot, but when I do it’s a life-saver. I prefer it over my disk/belt combo sander.

I have the same bandsaw. Make Christmas gifts on it last week. Had it since the early 80’s. Still chugging right along.
