FACTORY BLEMISHED - Which coming from Direct Tools Outlet means new.

7 dollar standard shipping rate.

I have used this sander quite a lot and for the price it is a steal. It has automatic belt tracking which none of the sander under $100 does. After using it for hours I did felt some vibrations in my hands but it was not a concerning.

If you have the money and don't mind spending $200+ then Makita belt sanders are obvious choice.

New at Home Depot [homedepot.com] is 119.

Not a delicate or precise tool but its strong and fast

I have this exact one. It slaps. Excellent dust collection. They ripped me off on the warranty, ridgid CS sucks, but still a great buy. I like diablo belts from HD for it. Great value.
Yes and no. If you're a careful you can get a flat surface but it might not be parallel to the other side. Nothing really takes the place of a true planer.

Had anyone bought any tools from direct tools outlet or any place similar that sells "blemish"? Are these used returns? Damaged boxes? Or factory blemishes? The pricing seems to good to pass up. Just curious about others experiences.

I bought a Random Orbital. There was no obvious damage to mine and it works great. And you can still register it for the Ridgid Lifetime Warranty, albeit a mail-in registration process only.

Can a belt sander take the place of a power planer? I wish this were 18v cordless though. I've been eyeing the $99 18v ridgidpower planer on DirectTools since I can't shell out the money for the bigger planer right now.

Every "blemished" item I have purchased through direct tools has been cosmetically perfect. There are usually open boxes or returns to the store that home depot can not resell.

Quality is good. Blemished usually means new.

They also have cordless rigid belt sander in stock right now. It's a little more money though.
