    Figure out new price, and compare this to new price.
    You decide if this is a good buy.

    Rikon machines seems pretty well regarded these days, but I have no specific knowledge of the disc sander. These are very simple machines so I would imagine that if it is in decent/operable condition, then price is the only factor.

    I have a Woodriver (Woodcraft) as best as I can see they came down the same assembly line. Very good machine. The price is around $200. If it's clean (no rust) and runs well it's a good buy.

    Re: RDU CL - Rikon 12" Sander - $140 (disc sander)

    I have a newer color Rikon disc sander, blue, and the first two tables they sent me, the part in front of the miter slot was slightly higher. Because of this, when sanding smaller/thinner pieces (think round a corner) the edge would grab on the raised part, and was hard to workaround. They sent a replacement, it was the same. They sent another replacement which looked like it was hand-sanded and had a big gash in the table. Its much flatter, but not what I would have expected from a "new" machine. I wouldn't buy another Rikon product because of that poor experience, but the sander works fine now.
