    Pros: Only one is the velcro strap to keep the cord coiled.
    Cons: Bearings do not last.  On/off switch to easy to accidently turn off while sanding.

    Summary: Bought this sander to add to my 1/4 sheet sander arsenal.  I have had as many as 4 at one time.  When you have to sand many pieces its nice to have different grits on each sander to finish each piece without swapping out grits.Like all new ... read more

    Pros: Thoughtful designs and engineering: powerful yet user-friendly, sturdy yet nicely detailed. Remarkable value!
    Cons: ON or OFF signs should be clearer. O - 1 marks are too vague.

    Pros: Well built and does excellent job. Uses readily available sandpaper and is easy to use.
    Cons: Hole punch results in ragged perforations in paper

    Summary: The Ridgid R2500 Quarter Sheet Sander is probably one of the nicest single-speed sanders on today's market. Priced at $49.97, it is hard to beat for performance or features. Last fall, Ridgid introduced its new line of professional grade portable tools. ... read more

    Pros: Comes with case. Power cord with velcro and power indicator. Decent dust collection.
    Cons: Attaching paper is tedious (take a lesson from Bosch).

    Summary: I have used this tool for about 40 hours overall. I'd sand with it for 5-10 minutes of constant work then change the paper and repeat for 6-8 hours. Sanded paint off doors and windows, solid stain off decks and various other finishes off siding. I used ... read more
