Over at Home Depot, this Ridgid woodworking deal bundle has returned. In this Ridgid R24011 corded power tool bundle, you get a 5.5A fixed base trim router and a 2.4A 1/4 sheet finish sander for $95.
The trim router (R24012) typically sells for $129 by itself, and the sander (R25011) typically sells for $45 by itself.
The router is sized for light duty woodworking or trim applications, and comes with a 1/4″ collet, while 1/4-sheet sanders are typically suited for finish sanding and for getting into corners and edges.
While I haven’t tried any Ridgid routers yet, I owned an older Ridgid random orbital sander that I was quite fond of. It produced a uniform scratch pattern, was comfortable to use, or at least as comfortable as a sander can be, and it offered okay dust collection. I passed it on to a family member after upgrading to a 6″ sander.
If you’re in the market for a compact trim router, this is a great combo to consider.
The router has a variable speed motor with soft-start feature, micro-adjust dial on the base, and LED work light. It also looks to have an easy-to-read speed settings dial, which is always a plus.
This is a deal of the day, ending at 3am ET 4/9/2021 unless supplies sell out sooner.
This bundle is only available online, with free home delivery or “ship to store” shipping options.
