Ridgid 14 Gal - Wet Dry Vac

Ridgid 14 Gal - Wet Dry Vac

09-15-2016 11:20 PM by Redoak49 | 10 comments »

My 25 year old Craftsman shop vac finally gave it up and started making weird noises and electrical smell… time to pull the plug on it. I looked over various Ridgid vacs and decided on the 14 gal. 6.0-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac. I know that there was a more powerful and larger vac but this one fit the size I needed and the cost was not too bad ($100). The one I got has the blue filter which is for fine dust but not HEPA rated. Things I like about this vac— —It is quieter...

Great Value Pack at a decent price point

Great Value Pack at a decent price point

05-15-2016 12:18 AM by edwood1975 | 11 comments »

So I just purchased this Impact Driver from the Home Depot and it included a charger and 2 Lithium battery’s. I really like this drill and in the short time ive had this drill i have put it through it paces, I basically built 2 garden gates with a ton of screws on a single charge on 1 battery. Pros.. One of the main reasons I bought this was because it has some great features in cluding a light on the handle that you can decide whether to turn on or off.. The Lithium battery is li...

Customer Service Matter Resolved

03-14-2016 09:15 PM by Wildwoods | 13 comments »

I am a small cabinet shop. I have bought many parts from ereplacementparts over many years. I recently ordered a part for my sander that cracked somehow, a shroud that directed the dust into the bag. I looked at the schematic and with the descriptions, I determined that the part, described as a dust collection support seemed to be the right part. Upon arrival, I saw the it was not the right part and so disassembled the sander further and found that what I was looking for was described as a br...

Rigid R2601 Random Orbital Sander

Rigid R2601 Random Orbital Sander

03-12-2016 07:47 PM by JetDriver | 4 comments »

I received my Rigid Orbital sander for Christmas this year and since then have had a chance to put it to good use on several projects. It’s my first Orbital Sander so I can’t compare it to other models based on personal experience but my choice was based on internet research that showed it to be among the best on the market at this time. Overall I would say it has fulfilled my expectations and I think my old Craftsmen palm sander is likely to start collecting a lot of dust in the future. T...

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

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...

My review of the Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Spindle Sander

My review of the Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Spindle Sander

07-22-2015 01:32 AM by coloradotrout | 45 comments »

Hi, after much deliberation, and reading and rereading the FWW review, I bought the EB4424, Ridgid Oscillating Spindle Sander. 8/4/15 Update:I returned #2. I then took a combo square off the display and applied it to the display unit sander. Much flatter table, and much more coplaner tables (tiltable table relative to fixed), and near perfect perpendicular table to spindle. All I can suggest is the older models were machined with much tighter tolerances. In my opinion the latest F...

Major Issues with Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Sander

Major Issues with Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Sander

04-20-2015 04:05 PM by nashley | 28 comments »

I purchased this ridgid sander 2 days ago after reading a lot of great reviews. The assembly went together very quickly and easily and the fit and finish of the sander appeared to be on par with the price. It wasn’t until I installed the belt assembly onto the spindle that I first noticed something wasn’t right. When installing the “spindle knob” (item 1 in the attached parts list diagram), I noticed that the threads were not even close to concentric to the shank of th...

Great Saw - Keep it in Context

Great Saw - Keep it in Context

03-21-2015 06:20 PM by tblake1984 | 12 comments »

I have had this saw for two weeks and felt I had used it enough to write a balanced review of it. As you can see from the pics, I have added a router table extension, sacrificial fence, and a router fence. In summary, it is exactly what I was looking for. The footprint is perfect for a basement or garage shop and the mobile base works extremely well and is built to handle this 260lb saw. Getting the saw home is a bear. I was doing it solo and I have a basement workspace so I actually e...

Ridgid Compound Sliding Miter Saw MS1290LZA, Up For Review

Ridgid Compound Sliding Miter Saw MS1290LZA, Up For Review

01-06-2015 08:28 PM by woodshopmike | 4 comments »

As usual, I’ll give you a teaser and you can check out the rest of the review on my blog. Here’s the gist. For 95% of woodworkers out there this saw is it. It’s a feature packed saw that does a lot of stuff well but falls just a little short in others. For the price, you can’t beat it. I really wanted to absolutely love with saw and have no faults with it, but since it’s a sliding miter saw there is going to be some amount of play. The slop that was in ...
