Anybody care that the Ridgid is aluminum table while all the clones are cast iron?

Nope! It’s a sander, not a surface plate.

I’ll echo that it’s a great value. I use mine all the time. Really one of the jewels of the Rigid line…

The dust collection is better than expected, too. This is very important to me, as I often use it to make curved templates from MDF which are then used as router templates. The only time I’ve had the spindle slip is when I forgot the washer at the top of the spindle.
