what is the screw hole in the front of the sander above the handle for?

what is the screw hole in the front of the sander above the handle for?
Asked by: Pullus
I believe you are referring to an alternative location for the handle. You can mount the front handle in two different mounting position.

Will home depot replace my sander

Bought a year or so ago sanding pad fell off
Asked by: Red
I imagine this is no longer a valid question. But, I had the same situation where my Ridgid 6" just stopped working after I owned it for a year. I took it to Home Depot and much to my surprise they gave me store credit.

6 in. Variable-Speed Dual Random Orbital Sander with Airguard Technology is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 226.

I have had none of the issues the lesser reviews noted. -The velcro grips so well that its actually a challenge to remove it at times. I do buy good sandpaper as the cheap brands cost more in waste than good brands that don't clog and hold better. -The handle and feel of the tool is of the quality expectations of a $100 power tool. In two weeks it has held up to some substantial use (this is an 8 hr/day workshop). The dual settings and variable speed setting allow you to dial in the perfect combination to get the job done. It has the best stock removal capacity of any orbital we have. Its base, center of gravity, and balance allows you to easilly keep the machine flat and helps to avoid the orbital divots that lesser orbitals can produce. My tool base is not typically the Rigid brand, but for the money, this orbital is the best pound for pound sander in the shop, other than the 36" drum sander. There are other comparables on the market but at twice the price or more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken after light use: Wasted time and Money without a solution! I bought the sander for a building a bar in my basement. It was used for small jobs here and there, but I was mostly interested in the larger pads for the ability to sand the bar top more even. A few months after purchase, the sander died in the middle of me sanding some shelves for the bar. I contacted Ridgid, and they said bring it to the Home Depot and they’ll take care of it.... What they didnt tell me was that I would be charged $19 to ship back to Ridgid for repair. I paid, figuring $19 was cheaped than the $100 to buy a new one. Fast forward 6 weeks, I find out my sander was replaced with a new one. I go to pick it up, only to find a 5” sander instead if 6”! I called Home Depot who told me to call Ridgid who told me “The 5in is all the warehouse has, but its equivalent.” I guess if my 12” miter saw broke, they may send an 8” hand saw, becuase they both cut wood. What a joke! Don’t spend your money on Ridgid, especially if you’re a contractor! It will die in the hands of a hobbyist who barely used the tool, then the Home Depot will take $20 more out of your pocket to send you a completey separate tool!

The reason being that the velcro tabs were worn out, and impossible to find a replacement pad. The 2610 still works great, however the sandpaper flies off constantly. The new model is a cheap version of the once great product. Every thing about it is made cheap. I had to take back one that was making a thumping sound when it started. The second one probably won't last to long. They made a great 2610. The 2611 makes Rigid more profit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very weak waste of money to buy Very weak ... I love my ridgid 5in sander figured this would be just as good or better and it’s such a letdown and I’ve used it on a project and feel bad returning it it’s really a waste of a product to buy. Can’t tell u about durability only used it once but just doesn’t have the power behind it for the projects that call for a 6in sander

The first unit was returned after just a few a passes.Velcro on bottom came unglued.Replacement sander going well, although it has a strange knocking sound when stopping. Velcro on replacement unit also looks to be coming undone.Planned Obsolences? Must finish the project.
