Ridgid’s oscillating edge belt and spindle sander (EB4424) is an example of a somewhat gimmicky design that is done right. This 2-in-1 sander can be used to sand both straight edges and curves, and features a 4″ x 24″ belt and set of five sanding drums.
Since it first appeared a few years ago, Ridgid’s sander has developed a quite a positive reputation for itself amongst woodworkers, and is a great choice for beginners and advanced users.
I’ve had my eye on this model for quite some time now, and may finally place an order for one. I’ve checked out combination disc and belt sanders, but most of the models in the Ridgid’s $200 price range are made with too much plastic. There’s always the option of a decent 12″ disc sander, but the curve sanding abbilities of this Ridgid is highly appealing.
