Ridgid 12 in Sliding Compound Miter Saw

Ridgid 12 in Sliding Compound Miter Saw

1474 days ago by Randy L. | 4 comments »

I recently purchased a Ridgid MS 1290LZ 12 in Sliding Compound Miter saw. I was looking for a saw to take the place of both a radial arm saw and a miter saw, so I decided on a 12 in slider. I did not have room (or money!) for both types of saws, so i decided that this would be a good way to get some of the benefits of both. I have had this saw for about two weeks now and am just about done trimming out my entire house with it. So far I am very happy with it and feel as if it was money wel...

Good compressor for nailing work

Good compressor for nailing work

2054 days ago by ferstler | 4 comments »

I have had this oil-free compressor for several years and have used it in conjunction with my Ridgid and Campbell-Hausfeld framing nailers to add timbering to my attic trusses, build a fancy coffered ceiling in my garage, and add additional nails to the siding on my house. I have also used it to power finishing and brad nailers for assorted projects. The thing works just fine. The calibration is perfect and I appreciate not having to worry about oil in the compressor section. It weighs 70 ...

Very good saw for a variety of uses

Very good saw for a variety of uses

1883 days ago by jonah | 4 comments »

My wife and I bought a house two years ago, and planned to redo the kitchen pretty extensively. I grew up doing construction projects with my step-father and am able to do framing, drywall, finish work, electrical, and very basic plumbing on my own. We ended up tearing it down to the studs and starting from scratch, and did 99% of the project ourselves. I realized before we started that I was going to need more power tools. I had a drill, jigsaw, circular saw, and hand tools, but had no sp...

Just what I needed.

Just what I needed.

1198 days ago by Tedstor | 4 comments »

A couple years back, I bought two craftsman routers off CL. One came with a fixed base and the other came with a fixed and plunge base. In spite of the bad “press” crfatsman often receives, these tools have treated me well.However, there is one legit shortcoming that I have found. The router accessory world basically revolves around Porter Cable, and Craftsman is no where to be found. This became especially apparent after I bought a HF dovetail jig and needed a baseplate bushing s...

Good Value, Serves its Purpose

Good Value, Serves its Purpose

975 days ago by Kelen | 4 comments »

I’ve probably waited much longer than I should have to purchase a featherboard setup for my table saw. Reading more into the magnetic featherboards and some of their reviews, I knew this would be the most versatile option instead of those that function using the miter track. I stumbled upon the Ridgid one online and read many positive reviews about it. The price point was also attractive relative to other brands that were selling for $50+ for what seemed to be the same basic concept....

Light and Powerful, Great Battery Life

Light and Powerful, Great Battery Life

975 days ago by Kelen | 4 comments »

I have been debating on picking up an impact driver for quite some time. I have a nice 14.4v Dewalt cordless drill and figured why would I also need an impact driver? After doing some extensive research and reading reviews online, I landed on the Ridgid impact driver offered by Home Depot. With a current price tag of $169, it’s less expensive than some of the other brands which was appealing to me as this felt a little more like a “want” purchase instead of a “need&...

Ridgid R86006 drill only combo

Ridgid R86006 drill only combo

863 days ago by cliffton | 3 comments »

First this was an upgrade from my 15 year old Craftsman 14.4 volt cordless drill. I was unable to source batteries for it and it finally died. That being said I got this at my local HD with a 20% Harbor freight coupon and 10% veteran discount. Taking it out of the box, my first impression was that it was very light and didn’t seem “hefty” enough. That being said, I noticed right away that the batteries had charge indicators on them and they both were at 2 lights out of 4...

A GOOD LITTLE SAW

A GOOD LITTLE SAW

279 days ago by PatrickB | 3 comments »

While this saw is not made anymore (it is made in another version) I found it to suffice for my needs at the time. The covering on the table wore off kind of quick but it did not impact the performance of the saw. For a job site saw the fence was adequate but nothing fantastic. I did put a WoodWorker II saw blade on it and that made a difference in how the saw cut. For over $100.00 it better make a difference!! I was able to 8/4 wood for cutting boards with this saw. I will admit it did not ...

My Ridig shopvac works better now

My Ridig shopvac works better now

1435 days ago by woodsmith | 3 comments »

In my use of shopvacs if you get a filter that will trap fine sawdust it stops up quickly. But some how Gore has come up with a way to give me the best of both worlds, longlife and HEPA filter. I have been using the first filter over a year and it still works. I have blown it out a few times. It is not cheap but to me it is worth it.

Fantastic little workhorse!

Fantastic little workhorse!

2324 days ago by Hawgnutz | 2 comments »

This has turned into my go-to sander for most of my initial or coarse sanding jobs. It uses inexpensive sandpaper that you can cut yourself. It has great power so you can complete a sometimes tedious job quicker and more efficiently! The built in dust collection works fantastic, too! It is very rare to find a sander that leaves so LITLE sawdust behind when it is hooked up to a 2 1/2” shop vacuum! It includes a punch plate so you can pierce your sandpaper if you wish to cut it yours...
