Anyone familiar with the Rikon 51-200 12" disk sander?
« on: February 05, 2013, 05:06 PM »
I'm thinking of buying a bench-mounted 12" disk sander. The Rikon is priced low ($219 from Woodcraft), but I am not familiar with Rikon power tools.
The few reviews I can find online seem generally favorable.

Thanks,

Russ

Russ,

I used to sell Rikon bandsaws and sanders when I worked for Western Tool and Woodworkers Warehouse. They make some great stuff and the price point's are good too. If you want something a little beefier, the Jet 12" kicks butt too. The price point though is a little over $500 bucks though.
