get the ridgid and save on your ears, 3 months from now, the 30 dollars could be eatin up in capachino or donuts waitng to get the next orders.. and if its to loud build the box.. i used a craftsman for my sanders for years and had enough of the noise and put it out in the garge part, in the new shop i got a fien to stop the noise and gain some vacumn.. never regretted that at all. pricey yes but to not have to listen to the noise priceless. ridgids have great reveiws ned.
If in Doubt, Build it Stout!
One hand washes the other!
Don't put off today till tomorrow!
