Ridgid EB4424 oscillating sander No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

Bought this one based on the reviews a year ago and Im not sorry I did! This is a great sander both. I love the ability to go from a spindle sander to the belt. Even came with plenty of diff. spindle sizes. The dust collection has been great, and it’s so quiet. This is a huge time saver on projects. At $200.00 this is a must have for the shop.

Yup.

Quite a few of us have them, and … almost all seem to love them.

Thanks for the write-up !

I have one of these on my list as well and will add it to my shop when my wife gives me an advance on my allowance. Thanks for the review.

I love mine too. Just using it this morning in fact. And I’m always surprised at how quiet it is. Especially because it was 5a and I live in an apartment. Hopefully my neighbors also think it’s quiet.

Love mine too… anything that cuts down on intricate hand sanding gets my vote.

I went to the box store to buy new paper for the spindles, and the manager of the tool department told me they are discontinuing the sander. I couldn’t believe it. Anybody know if there is any truth to that? I would hate to see a good tool go!

Hopefully it is just the box store might not be carrying it anymore…A few of the Borg are discontinuing carrying Rigid tools…do not know why…Maybe it is due to the cheapo stuff they can sell by Ryobi and Craftsman? I would find it rediculous for Ridgid to discontinue such a useful tool?

I too have this sander and the only problem I have had was one of the sleeves would not go on the rubber…no mater how much talcum I put on it…..I had to stretch it out on a clamp spreader….but it works fine now….I would agree with everyone else above…and all the reviews (I researched this in great detail for such a small purchase)....I have used this sander more than any other in my shop….it is so convenient…even the belt is great.
