I needed a router for my wooden room divider and deck project (for later in the summer) and I found a super good deal on this combo. It would have costed more if I just bought the same Ridgid router by itself. Although Home Depot says you're only saving $19 on the bundle, if the router and sander is purchased separately, it would have been $173.97.
Combo Package for $99 :
If purchased separately, total would be $173.97:
- 5.5 Amp Fixed-Based Corded Router is $129:
- 2.4Amp 1/4 Corded Sheet Sander: $44.97
The collet-size on this router is 1/4-inch. I also picked up the Yonico 15-piece 1/4--inch router-bit set to round-out my purchase if you wanted ideas on a quality set of router bits:
