- Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Edge Belt / Spindle Sander
- Brand: Ridgid | Category: Sanders
These have been reviewed a bit by others, but I just want to add a resounding “This is a great tool” to the heap.
Lumberjock YBNORMAL lives in the same town as I do, so when he told me his was great and gets lots of use I had to take the plunge. I found it still priced at $199 at the BORG.
I snagged a Husky support table at the same time ($35) so that I could mount this sander to it and have it a floor model from day one. Very sturdy when joined and perfect height for me.
I’ve already sanded the neck and body of the next guitar I have started making. Very fast and accurate. Dust collection is better than I expected, too.
I like how the front tilts down for bevel sanding. I will use this feature very soon to put comfort bevels on this same guitar body.
I have only had this a couple of weeks, but it was very simple to get assembled and was all I expected it to be given the recommendation and the previous reviews. I recommend this tool for anyone needing this type of sanding in their projects.
