I have the Ridgid Oscillating Edge Belt / Spindle Sander and in less than a year its starting to break. I read all the reviews that I could find and the machine looked and sounded as it was built pretty tough. Now dont get me wrong it has had its fair share of hard work, but…..the tabs on bushing snapped off. Now this is a metal piece and the breaks were clean with no jagged edges. I thought for sure it would have been the plastic or the vacuum port or something of less strength.
After the conversation with the service department I was recommend to look at the web site or call back to find a local service center. 40 miles away I find one, off I go to see if they can even repair it (I did call and the guy hasn’t worked on this before). Oh and no one knows if it is even covered by the warranty.
Has anybody had this experience with the tabs snapping off and what were the steps you took?
