  • Ridgid dual orbit ros, what's the deal?

    What is the advantage of dual orbit over single orbit. The price dif is about $80.
    I've been using the low end ridgid ros and beside the fact that it sands a little on the slow side, it does a good job. No gouges, swirls or anything. Hooked up to my shop vac there is only the smallest amount of dust on the workpiece, no dust anywhere else.

    The dual orbit is a great feature. At 1/4" orbit it removes material very quickly, switch to 1/8" and you have a smooth finish. I think it works great. There are other points that add to the extra $80
