I took my "Rockwell 314 trim saw into a repair center today, Needs a new power cord, service and brushes, and had a very intesting talk with the owne of 24 years. He has the idea that HD now "ownes" Ridgid. Well needless to say I junped in and related what this fourm has had to say about that. His reply was look what HD has one to Delta and Black and Decker. What ? He says that HD wants a lower quality tool so they can sell more..and that all tool and other vendors place their items in on consignment, If they sell ok, ifnot they dump the item. this to me is a little un-nerving to say the least.. I do hope that RIDGID does NOT folow this trend as it as far as I know their "undoing". Ridgid, listen up, and keep our QUALITY where is should be and not anotyer JUNK TOOL. He said in five or so years Ridgid will be a thing of the past. If Ridgid upsets HD they will dump them and where will Ridgid be then.. Food for thought?? of a fable?? Jake will you respond ASAP as to where you and Emerson fit in..Dick Nelson
