rigid

John in NM
I have the Rigid, bought maybe 4 years ago. The spindles seem to wobble more than when new, and one time the oscillation stopped. No idea why, but I when I took the mechanism apart whatever was stuck must have snapped back into place.

Bear in mind, I have used the heck out of this tool, so I'm not surprised by some wear. For $200 I have no regrets. I mostly use it for shaping and smoothing grips that I sell, using first a really coarse drum (50 grit) followed by a fine one (150). Must have made a few hundred grips on it.

I also have a Max OSV1 that I bought used. Haven't used that one much yet.
