    Wow, I didn’t think the Rigid was that big. Looks much larger than the Dewalt.

    Just a quick update on my Rigid. The thing still rocks but it’s a DUST machine with the OEM DC. So I made my own using an under table bosch router DC. Works GREAT!

    That’s awesome Brad, great idea! Looks like it would pick up all of the dust. I’m thinking of using that same part to make a over the blade dust collection attachment for my stationary table saw.

    I thought I recognized that DC shroud! Nice job Brad. I have an old Ryobi that is surprisingly efficient at collecting dust. It’s just a spindle though…no belt.

    Ya, I am going to trim it up a little so the flange doesn’t stick out so much but it makes a world of difference. Love this combo with the planer on the bottom

    That’s a really great setup Brad with both machines on one stand. A great space saver for sure. Nice job!

    That is a nice modification for sure. How are you keeping it in place? It that a screw holding it down to the plastic throat plate?

    Two screws into the metal “stop”. It’s a removable part that you can put pieces up against so the sander doesn’t rip them out of your hand.

    Wonder if that would work with my belt sander as the one on it now is about useless.

    That’s a very nice mod. I’m looking out for a sander like that.

    Good idea combining the 2 machines on one table.

    @thedude306

    That’s some quick thinking. Is it dramatically improved to the point you don’t really get a lot of over table dust compared to using the below table DC port on the machine?

    It is dramatic. I will have to get a video. That below table DC is a joke even hooked up to the big DC.

    I hooked this up to my iVac control on the rigid with a gate for it or the mitre saw and it’s GREAT. I should really investigate the auto switching gates.

    I really like the microswitch controls used in this video..

    great idea brad with the DC system. i noticed it too that the stock DC is not really working. all the dust is on the left side of the machine/belt
    i picked one up couple weeks ago from HD for $50 and i noticed when the belt is running…the hole mechanism wobbles. no quiet sure why it does that.
    i can upload a video too

    I got mine on sale as well and I am really happy with it.

    I was doing some more sanding on it today and when using both DC it was almost dust free with the belt sander. I need to come up with a better mount for using the spindle. Overall I am very happy with the machine.

    i just came back from the garage to make a video of the wobble from the machine…
    it kinda disappeared. so weird, im glad it fixed itself.
    i just just it a couple times so far but im really pleased with it.
    the DC on my sander needs an upgrade for sure! 😀

    That is a nice size sander for most shops, and your dust collection setup looks like it would capture the dust really well.
