  • Frame for portable belt sander

    RIDGID/TTI should offer a sanding frame for at least one of their belt sanders. This is a very desirable accessory and if one was available I would buy the sander and frame to replace teh DW-433KT I have now.

    A benchtop stand which would let the sander be mounted either vertically or horizontally would be nice too.

    I like the twin fan design of the R2740 and the extra long power cords on RIDGID tools are another plus.

    Many belt sander manufacturers offer a sanding frame option; Festool, Bosch, DeWalt, and others.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
