Brad’s submitted tools in the past, and today he asked for your help.  He writes: “I’m considering buying the RIDGID EB4424 oscillating edge belt/spindle sander, and was wondering if you guys (or your readers) could offer any insight into this tool’s performance/capabilities.  Thanks!”

I have to admit that we haven’t had any personal experience with this particular model yet.  (I had a similar sander once in my old shop, but it was older than me.) 

Price wise it looks pretty competitive at around $250.  What say you, fellow Toolmongers?  Do you own one?

    Fine Woodworking Magazine just gave the Ridgid top marks – if I recall it was best value and best overall. Grab it.

    Nice. Thanks. Runs $199 at the local Home Depot. Gonna grab it after Christmas.

  3. After a quick Google search, it appears that HD still sells this tool, but does not stock the sanding sleeves. However, there might be other online sources.
