Product Information:

The Rikon 50-112 features a 6" low mount sanding disc which allows unobstructed access to full length of the belt bed. Normally sanders of this type have the disc protruding above the sanding belt causing the work piece to hit the back of the disc shroud. The 50-112 also has a sturdy cast iron base and rigid steel belt bed which provide vibration-fee operation. The large 9" x 6-1/4" disc table is slotted to fit a miter gauge (included). The dust port on this item has an OD of 2.5" and an inside diameter of 2.25".

Cast Iron and Steel Construction - heavy duty base provides vibration-free operation.
Belt Speed 1900 SFPM - Helps finish the workpiece fast with smooth results.
Disc Speed 3450 RPM - Direct drive for increased torque and reliability.
0 - 45 degree Disc Table Tilt - Sand precision miters or any angle in between.

    I love this little sander! I wish I would have got it sooner. I'm a wood worker and boat carpenter it does everything I throw at it. The design is great the disc doesn't interfere when you use the belt like other ones.

    Comments about Rikon 4" x 36" Belt & Disc Sander, Model #50-112 :

    Don't know what people are complaining about. Remember you get what you pay for. I'm a true believer of that. If you want $500 performance you got to spend $500. I love the machine already. I'm a professional woodworker and it sanded 2x6 arm rest for a swing with ease. It did not bog down at all. Remember let the sander do the work not your arm. And the complaining about the vibration, well bolt it down, that really helps out.This machine will work nicely.

    i use this compact sander to prepare pen and bottle blanks. it is perfect for these tasks, which require little torque. set up was very easy. It was out of the box, assembled, inspected, safety check and working in 5 minutes. i like the compact size. i have limited space to work in. This sander provides the capability I need in tight quarters.

    Price: you get what you pay for! Tracking is terrible and when you change belts you have to pull half the machine apart. It is noisy and unbalanced….for a few more dollars you can have a Jet and will be all the happier for it. I usually do not write poor reports, this is the first.

    Comments about Rikon 4" x 36" Belt & Disc Sander, Model #50-112 :

    I was excited to try out this machine after it arrived today. I took it out of its mangled packaging, plugged it in, and turned it on. At first the belt did not move, the motor just whined for a few moments. I gave the belt a push and then it began operation. I put a 2" piece of 1/2" plywood on the main belt and it sanded for about a second before the belt slowed and then stopped. The motor is ridiculously underpowered, and franky terrible. This tool is a joke, only suitable for extremely small pieces of soft wood, if that. Definitely completely useless for any hardwoods. Worst tool I have ever purchased, I will be returning this asap. Do not buy this tool.

    Comments about Rikon 4" x 36" Belt & Disc Sander, Model #50-112 :

    I picked this sander up at a sale at the local woodcraft store on a whim; now I cannot imagine life without it. I mainly use it to rough out braces and bridges for fiddles and mandolins -- works great. I would have given it 5 stars, but the quality of the product is a bit on the shoddy side; table for the disc sander needed to be aligned; the screws in the chassis are crooked and not square to the chassis - so 4 stars. Hint: do not use this sander without a dust collecting solution. I did my first project without a dust collector; result: there was a fine layer of dust in my entire house. A cheap dust collector solution is Ridgid's shop vac model WD1270; it has an air volume of 130 cubic feet/min, plenty for a single sander and its 2.5" hose fits right into the sander's dust port.

    Comments about Rikon 4" x 36" Belt & Disc Sander, Model #50-112 :

    I bought this knowing Rikon is generally a good brand. However, this benchtop sander is very poorly built. After 4 weeks of use, the belt stopped rotating with just lightly setting a piece of soft wood on it. And the screws to the belt housing are made of soft metal and stripped out on my first try to remove them. It is going in the garbage and I am looking for a brand that will work.

    Very Poor Quality

    Comments about Rikon 4" x 36" Belt & Disc Sander, Model #50-112 :

    I bought this yesterday and it is going back today. The belt was torn coming out of the box - first clue. The instructions are about as poor quality as any I have seen in a long time - hard to read blurry photocopy pictures. But the main reason I am taking is back is that the table for the disc sander is of such cheap quality that it would never stand up to any real use. It is impossible to align it square with the disc - hitting on one side - out 1/4 in out on the other. After the fact I read the reviews on [@]and am surprised that Woodcraft would sell such a poorly reviewed item. I bought it because I have never gotten anything but quality from Woodcraft. This one is the exception.
