Customer Questions & Answers

how do I activate the airguard system (my room is full of dust from the drywall I am sanding)

Asked by: ranger28
You have to punch holes in the paper with the included punch plate. A shop-vac hose can be fitted to the dust collector by removing the bag.

Sandpaper retention clip issue, power switch placement issue.

Many of the reviews cite failure of the front sandpaper clip. They state that the clip is plastic, not durable, and that it wears out promptly if replaced. Another negative comment about the poor placement of the on/off switch also concerns me. I do not want a tool that has inherent design problems, or to pay to repair a tool that has a lifetime service agreement. I'm looking to buy a long-lasting, problem free tool, but am wary because of these negative reviews. Has Ridgid solved these problems? I had a Rockwell (Porter Cable) power block for decades before my garage/shop burned, and it never had any problem with paper retention, or with the placement of the power switch. That product is still available, but it is double the cost, and it does not have dust collection.
Asked by: Oakman
I have had one for about five years now that I purchased in 2012 and have no complaints about placement or function of the on/off switch. However, I have experienced the problem with the front sandpaper clip not holding the sand paper. I would not buy this product because of the front sandpaper design defect.

2.4 Amp 1/4 Sheet Sander with AIRGUARD Technology is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 262.

The on / off switch I have accidentally turned it off when I switch hands, it's no big deal but it has happened almost every time I switch hands - I don't know why... but I'll get used to it. The piece that goes on for the stick on sanding sheets seems to wear the holes out where it goes on at - so I can't use it. Other than those two things it's a great sander, I like how the paper goes on - great improvement there! I am only buying Ridgid tools from now on - I have a Ridgid belt sander and I recently purchased the two cordless drill set - great products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sander - if you make your own Custom Sheets I see a lot of complaints about the clamps that hold the sandpaper. My clamps are very strong and they work great. I like the design. The problem is a standard 1/4 sheet is only 5.5 inches long. Therefore the paper is barely long enough to get the paper under the clamp, leaving you about 1/4 inch to divide on each side. It is very, very frustrating to try and divide about 1/4" (1/8" on each side) to allow at least some paper under the clamp. I resolved this problem by cutting my own sheets 4.5 x 6 inches. I even like to make it 6.25 inches which gives you plenty of length. DUST: You can punch holes by using the paper punch template included or a standard paper puncher which allows more dust to pull through to the dust collector bag. You can also connect a vacuum hose to the sander by removing the bag. This is a strong work horse with a frustrating paper (clamp) issue. Make these adjustments and you have a great tool I wore out my runner pad, but easily ordered three replacements to have on hand. If Ridgid make a longer sheet for this sander I would sure like to know where to get them.

It has always seemed like I spent more time putting the sand paper on than I have actually sanding. The front "clip" does not do a good job of keeping the sandpaper intact. And It has only gotten worse with time to the point where it is now virtually useless. Today I could not sand for more than a minute without it coming loose over and over again. I even resorted to taping the back of the sandpaper in an effort to make it thicker so the clip would work. All to no avail.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not hold paper Mine didn't last 3 days before the paper started coming loose. Very frustrating! This is the second possibly last rigid product I've bought that I've had issues with. I do like the feel of it the only reason I gave it 1 star. It's useless when you have to put paper back in every 15- 30 seconds. Was building a step stool for my grand daughter ended up just hand sanding to work my frustrations out!

I have only used it once so far to sand down some reclaimed lumber to use for a raised flower bed. I used 60 grit sand paper and it did the job. The sander is comfortable to hold, and has very little vibration. Happy so far!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not great ... just okay what i like: much easier to clamp sandpaper onto face. what i do not like: (1) the on/off button is in a TERRIBLE spot - user will constantly accidentally turn it on or off since it is literally right where user holds unit (who would do that?? even lowly ryobi would do better...). (2) the rubber coating on the spring clamp wore out prematurely and then would no longer hold sandpaper at all. i had to order new part. (3) the rubber face pad is wearing out very quickly with metal rivets now poking out and tearing the paper. This sander pretty much is a lost cause. Get a dewalt or makita...back to the drawing board here. sorry guys.

Bought this to replace my 15 yo Porter Cable 1/4 sheet sander, the housing cracked with time and I am not a heavy user. The Ridgid sander Pros: The sander works great. Like the sand paper grip mechanisms, hole puncher and air guard (much less dust using this sander). Feels powerful enough to last a long time; powerful and does well from 40 grit to 220 grit. Con: the palm grip does get HOT after 2 minutes of use. Had to keep switching hands to avoid that constant burning feeling. Perhaps the grip could have been 1/4" taller with more air vents to allow for more air circulation.
