I just got a Ridgid oscillating spindle/edge sander. What brand, and where is a good place to order new sleeves and belts? I've been happy with Mirka for my ROS, so I'll probably use them for belts. It appears they don't make sleeves though?...or I'm just not seeing them. Let me know your preference please.

Thanks,
Chris

I have that same sander and love it...

I have just been using the spindles and belts for the HD they seam to last very well. I do use a cleaning stick on them a lot to keep them cleaned out.

I don't like to have belts setting around to long in the Texas heat, the tape will come loose. So I just get one when I need it, I use my sander a lot and the belts just last a long time.
