A few days ago Jason Swanson from Ryobi contacted me. He had been following the Limberjocks postings and discussion of Ryobi batteries. He graciously offered to send me some replacement batteries.

Today I received a large box from Ryobi that contained their “Ultimate Combo Kit”!! That is 6 tools, 2 of their best batteries, charger, and a bag.

I am extremely surprised, but when you hear that companies “don’t stand behind their products like they used too”; I hope you will think of this story and this very magnanimous gesture.

I will be putting them to work soon, probably tomorrow. I am hopeful that these new batteries will work well. As I said before, the Ryobi tools have been great, the batteries have been the issue.

Thanks again to everyone who posted and BTW, I did build the circular saw guide as suggested by toolie and it works great! Now I hope I can get these kitchen cabinets done over the winter and the new kitchen installed next spring.
