I think it is time we as customers of home depot DEMAND support from Home Depot and Ridgid in reguard to supporting their line of tools with COMMON accessories, and disposable parts. I have the ts3650 table saw, got it five or so years ago, It is a great saw, but Ridgid/home depot don't have the simplest of accessories for it, namely dado and zero clearance inserts. I also have the 13" planer and a 12 miter saw, that I bought and installed the herculift systems on, the best lifting and moving system I have ever seen for power tools, but I now find that you cant get em no more, not even online. I would like to add a laser to my miter saw that I bought before new ones started coming with them. But ridgid doesnt see fit to offer such an accessory, and their saw is incompatable with other brand aftermarket ones. I still want to add to my little shop a good band saw, jointer, and maybe a drill press, but looks like I wont be able to get a herculift for them so they are conveinant to use in my small shop. Am seriously looking to get the jointer very soon but have read on these forum pages of people having problems finding replacement blades. I really like the quality of the ridgid tools I already have, but have just about decided to go with Delta, or Jet on the jointer because It is clear that I can't count on Ridgid/Home Depot to make, stock, or even offer online accessories, and even parts for there tools, so It doesnt matter how good the tool is, if you cant use it as needed or for extented period due to lack of parts, It is high time we demand support from Ridgid/Home Depot, or boycot the tools.
