  • Ridgid Spindle/Belt Sander Poinions ?

    I am thinking about buying a Ridgid EB 4424 Spindle/Belt Sander. Most of the reviews I've read make this out to be a great bench top sanding system for the money.. $199 at Home Depot . Do any of you have any experiences with this unit? I've read up on the Delta Boss , there are good reviews and bad on that one. The Jet is a great spindle only unit , tho pricey for my budget. I currently only own a palm sander, so the Ridgid is a real plus for giving me a belt sander built in. Any imput is appreciated in advance. BTW I'm still out of service on my Delta P-20..waiting for the new blade clamps. .....Larry http :// 8Ridgid-Edge-Belt-Sander-EB4424.jpg

      Sorry, I have no experience with it, but for the price it sounds ok, and most Ive read about it is positive, so you can officially be the one to give us a review on it!! Enjoy the new sander. Dale

        That you will,

        I own one and enjoy it so far.

        The reviews I have read confirm that this was a good choice.

          I think you will enjoy it. I have one and like it a lot. I don't use it extensively, but the flexibility of switching between spindle to belt is very handy and easy to do. I've also used the tilt table feature a few times. The dust collection with my shop vac works pretty well also.

          I've used a Delta BOSS a couple times. It may be a heavier machine and may have more spindle travel, but I wouldn't trade my Ridgid for one.

            Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

            Thanks Betty for asking. Staples came out today. There are some internal stiches that will dissolve over time. Jane is still doing PT twice a week. The only normal activity, whatever she can tolerate, but she is not allowed to swim due to the risk of infection. She will still have to keep icing...

            I will chime in on this discussion. I was a test cutter up until I could not because of Covid. They have not contacted me since. I still subscribe to the magazine, but there maybe one pattern I might cut in each issue.

            As for Bob, I tried to contact Bob to no avail.
