  • Want to see how a RIDGID wrench is made?

    http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-schedule...26040.37904.34

    Check out Discovery Channel's program, Factory Made, tomorrow (5/28/10) and see how RIDGID makes the famous wrench that you know and love. The show airs at 9:30 AM EST; the link above should direct you to local listings. So be sure to set your DVR's and tell your friends. Be great to hear from you after the show! Tells us what you think! We always love a good pipe wrench story.

      for those of us at the roundups, we got to see it live

      didn't see the castings poured, but did see the powder coating, machining and assembly of the wrenches.

      interesting as the person who machines and assembles, is also the one that packages them for shipping.

      a fascinating factory tour we all enjoyed.

              Second that. No cable or dish. I think Urick did make them then Ridge powdercoated them. Can't remember.

              Be great to see though.

                      Factory Made did a great job of showing the wrench manufacturing process from start to finish. We will get a copy of the episode up onto RIDGIDConnect and then publish a job report for everyone to see.

                        Our good man Mr. Dyer captured the Discovery Channel "FACTORY MADE" segment and has placed it in a RIDGIDConnect job report. Click the link to see how we make the famous RIDGID pipe wrench http://www.ridgidconnect.com/Home.as...nCwNRGLg%3d%3d


                        If the link doesn't work for you - simply go to www.ridgidconnect.com. In the uppoer right enter the job code: SDD - Factory Made.

                        Click the follow up button at the bottom of the job report - we would love to hear your thoughts and reactions to the segment. Tell us your best pipe wrench story.

                          I thought it was a good segment it was neat to see the casting portion of it too, which IIRC was done in PA before the final assembly in Elyria.

                            lots of the machining was not shown on the handle.

                            was very interesting to watch the raw materials come together and minutes later the finished wrench would be packed into the shipping cartons.
