Deal on the Ridgid 15" Drill Press

Deal on the Ridgid 15" Drill Press

1554 days ago by Juansnapon | 21 comments »

I just picked up the Ridgid 15” Drill press for $149, Home Depot has them on Sale in there lower volume stores. 20 minutes away another HD had the same drill press for $299 at a higher volume store so make sure you keep your eyes open for good deals at the HD. Don’t forget HD will take competitor coupons like Harbor Fright tools 20% off coupons too. Other than a little movement in the table that can be fixed with a little care this unit is great right out of the box and with the ...

Ridgid DP1550 Drill Press

Ridgid DP1550 Drill Press

1332 days ago by ic3ss | 21 comments »

Hi all, I just got back from Home Depot a few hours ago with my new drill press. Woo-Hoo! I chose this drill press based on the weight of the reviews that I’ve read on this website and elsewhere. I just brought it home a few hours ago and just completed setting it up and testing it. Out of the box, the reviews hold true about the accuracy of the parts fitting together, fit and finish, ease of assembly, and usability. After seating the chuck, I found the runout is about .003&#...

A Huge Help!

A Huge Help!

1281 days ago by RandyMorter | 21 comments »

I picked up this Ridgid Oscillating Edge Belt/Spindle sander on 1/22/2011. I had done one band saw box and had four more in progress and wasn’t looking forward to all of the sanding they were going to require. Being the lazy guy I am, I wanted to find a tool to do some of the work for me. I read a number of reviews about sanders and this one seemed to get decent reviews and the oscillating belt sander feature appealed to me. The price wasn’t bad at $199 for what it offers. I also ...

13" bench top planer (Reconditioned)

13" bench top planer (Reconditioned)

1734 days ago by Fireguy | 21 comments »

I purchased the rigid planer yesterday and got it home and unpacked it right away since it is reconditioned. Everything was with it and as far as I could tell never used or why it is reconditioned. Today I want thru the setup and tuned the in feed and out feed tables to level with the table. The thickness scale and repeat a cut where right on so I left them alone. Pro’s1: Great reviews2: Price $189.00, I also had a coupon for 10% off so ended up 169.00 + tax. Hard to beat that price.3:...

Clean your House with a Ridgid Vac

Clean your House with a Ridgid Vac

1694 days ago by d_webb | 21 comments »

Yeah that’s right, I clean my house with a shop vac. I recently learned that normal vacuum cleaners are a joke compared to shop vacs. Earlier this summer when my lame hoover choked on penny, I decided it was time to purchase a worthwhile vacuum cleaner. After doing some vacuum research, it appeared the best thing on the market was a Dyson. However, I was in no mood to spend $50,000 on a vacuum cleaner that has a one wheel/ball thingy (maybe in better economic times). Then it hit me, ...

Good enough, but not perfect

Good enough, but not perfect

584 days ago by colvinatch | 21 comments »

First, for what it’s worth, I have a Masters degree in functional design (woodworking) and studied under a master woodworker for 4 years. In our school shop we had large industrial 1960’s and 1970’s vintage Delta and Powermatic tools that had as much iron and steel in them as a Mack truck, so I know how a real saw is supposed to work, look and feel. Flash forward 15 years… For five years I have been using a crappy entry level ($100.00) table saw and it is simply god...

UPDATED: Returning the saw.

UPDATED: Returning the saw.

157 days ago by JSB | 21 comments »

I have no complaints with this saw. It’s a great buy for the money. I’ve only used it for one project so far so if things change I’ll update this. I doubt they will though. Pros:-Enough power for what what just about anyone will do.-Fence alignment is easy.-Blade alignment is easy, I think they worked out all the problems there. blade to miter slot is easy…still has other problems noted below-Mobile base is smooth.-4” dust collection port. Cons:-none so far...

I picked up this saw last feb at HD, and for $299 I figued it was a good deal. I don’t resaw any thing so the size was right. The assembly of the saw was stright foward, I had it compleated in less than an hour. When I turned it on, I thought that saw was going to walk across the shop. I done some research “after I bought it” and then started fixing things one by one: The belt was replaced with a link belt from Rockler, It helped a pretty good bit but it still had a fair amo...

Great drill...but

Great drill...but

1995 days ago by Cathy Krumrei | 20 comments »

This drill has alot of long lasting power and when the battery goes dead..it’s dead! We received 2 batteries and it doesn’t take long to recharge the dead one. The downfall I have with this-the bit loosens when in reverse. You really have to hold to tighten the chuck…but for me the bit still drops on the floor. I may find something to add around it as the plastic tends to just slip from my grip and it can hurt. With the 18V it’s a bit on the heavier side but the power ...

Ridgid 13" Planer

Ridgid 13" Planer

1980 days ago by Alan | 20 comments »

I bought this planer for my small basement workshop. It was fairly cheap, $299 Canadian on sale. It takes off alot of wood fast and is very easily adjusted. The only problem is snipe, even when I feel the boards are supported. The other observation is that after using it for a little while it creates alot of static electricity, shaving stick to it. Anyway I make sure my boards are longer then required then cut off the snipe. If I was to purchase another one I might spend more and get a ...
