With the help of $187 in HD cards and some cash, I finally picked up a new bench sander. I paid regular retail so I can't gloat, but I am happy with the new toy nonetheless. Ridgid oscillating spindle sander...$199.99. They wouldn't even give me a lousy 10%! (but I tried! ).
I've put one board to it so far...made alot of dust in short order! It really works well...I'm surprised there aren't other belt/spindle oscillating combo sanders like this.
I know the pic rule, but you're gonna have to settle for a file photo...I'm too lazy to take my own digipic over a bench sander!
Thanks to Vaughn for swapping my Lowes card for his HD card!
