I’m considering buying a Rigid EB4424 oscillating sander (and I probably will), but I'm curious about something. A while back, I inherited a giant box of 3” x 24” belts (of assorted grits) that I would love to put to good use. I understand that the EB4424 takes 4” x 24” belts and that it has a 3/4” stoke, but I was wondering if I might have the option of using 3” belts on it. I recognize that this would create some limitations on how I am able to use the machine, but I would really like to know is if doing so is even possible, safe, and non-detrimental to the machine. Does anyone know? Or is there a current EB4424 owner willing to give it a try for me?
No announcement yet.
