Oscillating Edge Belt / Spindle Sander is rated out of 5 by 29.
Rated 3 out of 5 by shopmaker from Good product but quality is not up to standard After using it for a few times the knob came loose on the sanding belt and it bent the frame. Now it has excessive vibration and the belt will not stay aligned. I still use it but with some frustration It could be a great product if it was better built when I get time I am going to try and straighten the parts. I will probably replace it with a more durable machine as I do a lot of woodwork. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by popeye from awesome machine I've had mine about five years. I use it on a regular basis. Only thing I have to replace is the 2 in spindle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MooseGuy from Find an alternative The first one I took out of the box just hummed when I turned it on, it would not spin. I took it back to home depot where they gladly exchanged it. I took the second one home and it worked for a total of 1 day. The only way to get the spindle to spin is to tip it on its back, this must free up something in the motor cause it will work until I turn it off again. 0-2 same problem. I like Ridgid and have other tools by them but I expect stuff to work. There are many similar reviews on line. Currently reviewing what to replace it with and will be returning it to home depot this weekend. Do not buy this tool

Rated 3 out of 5 by FrustratedUser from Love the product but they don't make spare parts even for products current for sale I love using the product. It is great for sanding and shaping small parts that fit on the table. Using it one day it stopped working and I discovered that saw dust collects below the belt, which you would not notice if you don't remove the whole belt assembly. Once it builds up the plastic fan breaks. It is easy to replace and the part used to be available for $4.00, but it is discountinued. IF YOU ARE DISCONTINUING THE PARTS DISCONTINUE THE THE WHOLE SANDER.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AstroBob from Really excellent tool and clever design I have had this tool for some time...think I was one of the early buyers. It is versatile having both the oscillating drums AND the flat plate. I use it for a lot of projects...wood working as well as metal work. I originally bought it for sanding the parts of puzzles created with a scroll saw but it has seen frequent use in all my various projects...and probably a lot of abuse it was never intended to take when working metal parts from my metal milling machine. You do have to be careful when moving the unit around so the various small parts like washers don't fall out and get lost. If it was permanently setup this wouldn't be an issue but mine isn't. The dust collection system for it is pretty effective too. But I make sure to use my shop vac to frequently clean out the various nooks and crannies. Changing out the various size drums and the belt sander is pretty quick and easy and spare sanding drums and belts are readily available at Home Depot. I was worried that I would have to order spare sand paper from the factory but Home Depot eliminated that worry. One thing I really like is that it is very quiet. I had considered a couple of other brands that all cost significantly more and didn't have the versatility of this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buzzsaw from Great little sander for the money i have used this in my wood shop and to shape billet aluminum parts that I make by hand for motorcycles. This thing has taken great use/abuse. I have had 4 years of constant steady use out of it so far. If it breaks today I'll smile, and then go right over to home depot and buy another one. Worth the 199 all day long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FoldTite from 4 times quality of the other options. The oscillating sander makes short work of the aluminum trimming we do in the plant. the high quality of the platform and complete unit was so much better than the belt / disc sander options from the other manufactures.

Several reviewers on the Home Depot web site spoke of motor failures ( burn up) with the Oscillating Edge Belt Sander. Is this an ongoing issue? Have the motor problems been corrected? What recourse will I have if I purchase the sander and have a similar issue with the motor? Another stated problem was the sanding belt would not stay in track. Is this a problem with the design of the tracking mechanism? Again, what recourse do I have if I have a similar problem? The reviews were filed since the beginning of 2013.
I don't use mine in industrial type use or overload the motor...that could be an issue. My belts have always run true...there is a adjustment to center the tracking of the belt. I have another brand of table type belt sander and that requires you to make sure the belt is centered too. As a belt wears it may start moving off center so you need to recenter it...or replace. A higher quality belt makes a big difference too. I have had mine ever since they first came out and my motor is fine although not industrial type use. Mostly for sanding of hard wood parts from a powered scroll saw with occasional smoothing and removing flash from aluminum plate parts from my milling machine.

Oscillating spindle sander, is this tool up for discontinuation?
I am considering this for purchase.
I was in Home Depot in Michigan today and saw it on display. This is a really useful tool although I wouldn't use it for heavy industrial use. Lots of versatility and clever design. Have had mine ever since it first came out...and no issues.

Discontinued or not?
I noticed in a reply by Ridgid 2 1/2 years ago that this sander was discontinued but in a more recent reply Ridgid 11 months ago you stated that this sander was not discontinued and should not appear that it was... So now which is it?
Thank you for contacting RIDGID. The EB4424 is still available for purchase. Please consult with your local Home Depot their in stock status.
