Wow, I’m in the minority in telling you not to get the Rigid. I have one and I only use it for the oscillating edge sander. The spindle sander sleeves cannot be tightened enough as the rubber on the spindle is too hard and so you get way too much slippage when trying to sand. You have to use too light a touch to get it to spin and then, it’s not enough to actually do the sanding that needs to be done.

I ended up getting this.

I used the original dust port and added a second one and it works great.

If you want to try something smaller, I have heard the Harbor Freight bench top has good reviews.
