I've never used a router before and I was able to put a store quality edge on a shelf I built. It's strong but runs smooth, I was able to control it very easily. As far as the sander, I've got a lot of sanders and this Ridgid sander is Excellent. The sanding motion makes for a really nice smooth sand and the power is adjustable. Collects dust pretty good too. It's a keeper.

Worked wonderfully. Powerful, and the battery (4 amp hour) lasted longer than I expected. Sander is good, just bogged down in some instances. Both very easy to use.

What is included with this router and Sander?

Asked by: DarthRidgid
It includes the trim router, and orbital sander. And edge guide, dust shoot and a small wrench for the router bit. I think it also includes a 45 degree router bit 1/4" shaft too.

Everything suggests the 1/4" sander is included. The main photo is erroneous.
