  • The tools that Ridgid should make.

    1. The Sliding compound miter saw should be model after the delta twin miter saw and the Hitachi C 12RSH.
    2. The ridgid radial arm saw needs to come back in a 10” and 12” models.
    3. The ridgid planer needs a four knife cutter head.
    4. Ridgid needs to make a cordless vacuum. We all to clean up while a customer’s job site.
    5. Ridgid need to make a sliding metal chop saw also in a cordless version.
    6. Ridgid needs to make a cordless router.
    7. And finally Ridgid need to make a wood shaper.

    If ridgid is going after the contractor then these are some of the tools, I would like to see come to market. Just my $.02 cents

      Can we get a 24V jobsite HDTV/coffee pot to go with that?

        I'm still waiting for the router table like the grizzly G0528

        I do think my thumb is doing most decision making though.

            Router Ideas

            Polar Sparky,

            For now, space is limited at my place of abode. I do like the idea of this Bench Dog addition to my tablesaw (still saving for).

              Here's the list I'd like to see them add:

              - 8" jointer
              - 1.5hp dust collector
              - Hybrid saw with upgradeable fence options
              - Benchtop DP

                  Second the Radial Arm Saw Suggestion

                  Ridgid should return to the Radial Arm Saw market. A 12" model if possible.

                      24v impact is supposed to be out already but... ridgid needs to make some cordless 24v nail guns finish and brad, right angle impact or drill, angle grinder, drywall/deck gun, 10" miter saw, jamb saw. all these items could be 24v max select items and still sell for cheap.

                        If they come out with an electric nail gun it should be like the DeWalt or even the little Black and Decker....not like the crappy TTI/Ryobi brad nailer. The Ryobi gun is slowwwww...and works marginally for staples....very poorly for brads.

                          24v drill (not hammer combo) because lighter with LED light, I see Craftsman already has one. But also have laser & bit & drill holder built in.
                          24v saw with laser.

                            pin nailer

                            I would love to see a cordless pin nailer (23 ga). I have the senco air and love it. I wish I had one when I was a window installer and banging up jamb, case and sills all the time. For stain grade work it is awesome and you can put two or three into a miter or right near the edge without even thinking about splitting.
                            Ridgid will have one sold already if they do make it...
