In search of thin kerf Rip blade

In search of thin kerf Rip blade

08-24-2010 08:39 PM by Routerisstillmyname | 7 comments »

I already own what I and many consider the best ripping saw blade in industry (( http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/976 )) but there is one disadvantage with using that, the kerf is THICK. so although that’s my go to blade when I need to put a perfect edge on a long board, I needed a thin kerf blade for rip cuts without the need to mortgage the house.I decided to go real cheap and give one of those Frued 7” diablo blades a try when I saw this from Ridgid. So I decided to give it a chance. It has ...

Ridgid MS-UV Miter Stand

Ridgid MS-UV Miter Stand

04-16-2013 02:37 AM by JerrySats | 7 comments »

I can’t say enough good things about this stand but I’ll try and highlight all the things I like about it . First is the tubing size , it’s a whooping 1 3/4” tube , it screams heavy duty . It folds up super easy and stores nicely where ever you put it . The wheels are large and solid and roll over grass and stones with ease . The work extensions aren’t nothing fancy but will serve you well , they extend out 32” from the main part and have adjustable stops...

RIDGID GEN5X Combo Kit, Up For Review + A Giveaway!

08-06-2015 01:50 PM by woodshopmike | 7 comments »

Alright y’all, I’ve recently reviewed the GEN5X line of tools and I gotta say I’m nothing short of impressed with the features, quality, and power. So, like normal the GEN5X review is on my blog, but what’s awesome (and what everyone is probably more interested in) is that RIDGID is sponsoring a giveaway for the GEN5X Combo Kit. So if free tools sound good to you then enter the giveaway at the bottom of the review. If free tools don’t sound good then, well...

Rigid 2410LS

Rigid 2410LS

I purchased the Rigid 2410LS saw from Home Depot yesterday. The saw was retailing for $499 and after tax it came out to $530. I managed to fit the entire unit in the back seat of my 99 Lincoln Town Car by taking it out of the carton. I stuffed the packaging materials in the trunk and slid the saw in the back seat. It was easy enough to lift right in, a bit of a tight fit but compact enough to get in there. That in itself impressed me. I got it home and before I unwrapped the plastic, I too...

I just bought this tool the other day specifically for one project, used it today for the first time, so this is an intial impression review and time will tell how it holds up or what other uses I may find for it.

Good she says, I ordered oriental carpet for a stair runners and you can help me install it this weekend. After reviewing her video on stair runner i...

Ridgid 16 gallon Shop Vacuum

Ridgid 16 gallon Shop Vacuum

03-11-2011 03:44 AM by kansas | 6 comments »

I just purchased this Ridgid 16 gallon Wet/Dry Vac. The model is a WD 1851 and I got it at Home Depot for $160. I’m upgrading (I hope) from an older ShopVac I had that’s at death’s door. This machine seems very nice so far. Nice power cord length and cord seems to stay cool when running. The switch is right up front and very easy to operate. The included hose and accessories aren’t bad either. The motor is rated for 12 amps but you won’t find that on the packagin...

Ridgid 16 Gal Pro Vac 1851 a real good performer

Ridgid 16 Gal Pro Vac 1851 a real good performer

10-05-2011 12:41 AM by yrob | 6 comments »

This weekend I went and bought a new shop vacuum. My old crappy one from Lowes was not even powerful enough to vacuum plane shavings.. I went to Home Depot and bought their most powerful one. For $159.00 it is money well invested. It comes with a 16 Gallon tank and plenty of accessories. The port is a standard 2 1/2 ” which is one the the reasons I bough it. There are adapters available to go from 2.5 to 4” and hook up to tools like a planner. This thing is a beast. The suct...

Ridgid 1/2" Compact Cordless Drill is Great

Ridgid 1/2" Compact Cordless Drill is Great

10-15-2011 11:07 PM by patcollins | 6 comments »

I bought this drill at a Direct Tools outlet store in Hagerstown MD, they sell reconditioned Ridgid and Ryobi tools. Usually the only way you can tell that it is a reconditioned tool is the reconditioned stamp branded on the tool but this one had definate cosmetic wear. I wasn’t too pleased when I got it home and opened the box that it looked like it had been used on a construction site. Well, then I used it and WOW what an upgrade over the 12V B&D I had been using. The Ridgi...

The LOW-DOWN of the RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw by WISTY: NOTE: This is a saw that I have had for a while now, I am just getting time to finalize a review for it, enjoy the read! The RIDGID RS1000 is an EXCELLENT saw at an AFFORDABLE price! Excellent for those who are lacking floor space. Highly accurate and extremely powerful saw that is built to last. My personal recommendations are simple: GET ONE AND KEEP IT! Good Luck trying to find one though as anyone who already has one will pr...

A great portable saw

A great portable saw

01-15-2008 03:09 AM by Zuki | 5 comments »

I purchased the TS2400LS in late December 2006. I needed a powerful and feature laden portable table saw for my workshop. I reviewed other portable saws including: Bosch 4000-09 Dewalt 774 I did not review the Makita 2704X1 it was not available at that time. I decided on the Ridgid for several reasons:- the non-pneumatic tires make for a more stable base- T- tracks in the table top- beveled top edge allowing the miter to slide easily- the slots in the fence allows jigs to be easil...
