    BEWARE!!! Wikipedia had a link in the Ridgid Tools article, "Ridgid Tools website," and that link goes to "" I was suspicious when I saw that it only had saws and wrenches for sale, and really got suspicious when I saw that the graphics were pirated from other offshore sites. The "whois" on the link is private, but shows a Netherlands address. I think Ridge Tool legal department needs to check this out!

    If an administrator for this site needs more details, go to and see for yourself.

    Best thing would be for Josh or some other representative of RIDGID to contact Wikipedia and set the record straight. Since Wikipedia articles can be written by anybody, this is bound to happen. A classic example of why you can not trust everything you see or read on the WWW.

    "Trust but verify" should be your MO when cruising the 'net.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
