Whether you're sanding contours to the line or just smoothing edges, the Rikon 50-120 combination Belt/Disc Sander provides the performance you need. The belt sander tilts to any angle from 0° to 90°, allowing you to apply downward pressure for face sanding or sideways pressure for edge sanding. When the belt sander is oriented vertically, the detachable support table provides a solid 90° reference surface for your workpiece. The disc sander is ideal when you need to use the miter gauge for angles or miters, and it also accepts the Rockler Disc Sander Angle Jig (#54963, sold separately) if you want to sand circles or more precise miters.


Features:

  • Belt sander tilts from vertical to horizontal and anywhere in between
  • Support table attaches to belt sander for use when edge sanding
  • Table for disc sander tilts 45° for beveled edges
  • Belt tension release handle allows easy abrasive changes
  • Sturdy cast iron and steel construction

Top brand and excellent service at Rockler Local Store
Had not considered this model until discussing with the folks at the Sandy Springs, GA Rockler store. It's a lot of machine for the money. Had a small UPS problem and the store manager, Dan, personally saw to making it right. You just can't get that kind of service from a website!

This is a nice unit that sets up quickly. It is very heavy which means it won't bounce around. Runs nicely.

Good But--
Good but two complaints, hence 4 stars. Assembly instruction difficult to read and follow. (Easy solution, have web site with pictures in color so you can see t what they refer.). Second, runs very fast with the high motor so belt sander should be 120 git not 80 grit. Otherwise, a great sander.

I purchased another make of sander like this one early this year. It turned out to be defective and was returned. However, this unit from Rikon is far better in the quality of construction. The other was almost all plastic and felt as though it would not last 6 months. This unit is solid. My one complaint is I would fire the engineer that decided where the bolts go to attach the disc sander table to support arms. They are almost impossible to get at. Really stupid. Other than that it is great. RM

The belt tracked great. Shimmed the fence to square the fence to the belt. Runs smooth.
Just what I wanted at a decent price. Didn’t use much but sanded just fine. Had a missing bracket for the disc table. A quick phone call and the part was sent to me in a timely matter. So I feel that if I have any future problems the customer service will be fine

Very heavy and will make quick work of your sanding project. Be sure to wear a good mask.
So far so good. I used it for a couple of hours to rough out some spoons that I was carving. The sardust port works but I still had to do quite a bit of vacuuming afterwards. The verticle fence is not accurate for a true 90 degrees. For my first use, accuracy was not needed. With the supplied 80 grit, this made quick work of what I had to sand. Too bad the sander dit not come with additional finer grits sanding belts.

Did not use the sanding wheel.
I built a cart on wheels which allowed for my sander on top and my thickness planner on the bottom.

Good solid machine
It is basically a well constructed machine. The assembly instructions could be better. I had one screw for the belt cover that does not fit, which is the only construction issue that I found.

Read the instructions
When unpacking the tool, be sure to check all edges of the Styrofoam for parts. Almost threw out a knurled knob for the disc table support. The instructions could be more clearly written. You jump from the written part to the diagram to see what is being described.There are two Allen wrenches included but no info on what to use one for. The machine itself is very quiet and does the job.

Has the disc sander below the belt sander and disc size and overall cost is very good. I already have 5 other Rikon Power tool.

what sort of dust collection fitting does this have?
J Joseph C on Jun 16, 2017
is there a dust collection port?
MIKE H on Apr 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. There is a 2 1/2 " port in the end of the unit that is closest to the disk sander.
cannot adjust the belt traking on the 50-120 sander. Trying to adjust the belt tracking and I cannot adjust it to track true. The bels tracks to the left. When I turn the the tracking adjustment screw I run out of adjustment screw before the belt can be adjusted to track true and to the right.Is there anyother tracking adjustments I can do or can you tell me what I can do to get it to track true?
larry H on Nov 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I don't have that problem with mine.
The purpose is to adjust the axes of the two rotating cylinders to be parallel.
Something either has to be bent or assembled incorrectly to act like you described.
Maybe take a couple measurements between the cylinders to figure out what is too long or too short and see if there is an obvious change you can make to how it's assembled.
Will the Rockler Disc Sander Angle Jig fit the table on this sander?
Paul W on Jun 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: no clue, never tried
Does anyone know how much this weighs? Trying to figure out how delivery would work. For a very heavy item previously, I had to go to a cargo depot and get it put into the back of my car with a forklift. Thanks.
Susan S on Dec 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This item weighs 102 lbs and is approximately 29" long x 17 1/2" wide and 16" high.
