  • New Tools From Ridgid Coming In The Fall

    WOOD Magazine is again reporting that they got a sneak preview of some new tools coming out later this years. Wood was also the magazine that reported a few years back about a soon to be released new Ridgid bandsaw that never happened. I hope they're correct this time as Ridgid really needs to have a quality table saw in their line-up.

      I already have the Ryobi grinder and it's nothing like the corded model but it works. I'll buy the Ryobi 1/2" impact wrench if it has sufficient torque and is reasonably priced. Too bad Ridgid didn't step up.

        i see the tti rep, (ridgid, milwaukee, roybi) during the week when i go to h.d. there are some new toys coming from ridgid, but he couldn't elaborate yet.

        roybi has the best led flashlight right now with their 4 volt tec line. there is a new one that is on display, but not stocked yet that i'm waiting for the call. the ones i use are 1 watt led that last 6 hours on a charge and are plenty bright with a great focus and good beam.

        the new one is 6 rota table leds that last up to 16 hours and has a high low output plus pretty water tight. great for inside of cabinets.

          And now if you scroll down, Ryobi has their own little inspection camera.

            ??????

            Please explain ("now if you scroll down")... am I missing something?

            Actually I could use an inexpensive inspection camera, as I'm trying to sort out a hidden broken wire somewhere within a wall or ceiling.

            I went to Home Depot, hoping to come home with the Ridgid "micro Sea Snake" but they no longer carry it in either of the stores that I frequent. (I simply cannot comprehend what goes on with Home Depot and Ridgid tools... ridiculous partnership I think.)

            Thanks,

            CWS

              The original Wood Magazine link in the first post. At the bottom of that page is a Ryobi Tek4 inspection camera. No idea of price though.

                $139.00 from what i remember, but it's just a camera. there is no memory card or video outs.

                nice clean picture and decent lighting. don't think they have an extension cable at this point.

                        Re: New Tools From Ridgid Coming In The Fall

                        I just bought the Ryobi TEK4 Inspection Scope... at $139, it looks pretty decent. The one on display actually had a battery in it and after playing for a bit it looks like it will do the job I need it for.

                        So, I'm now waiting for my new scope's battery to charge.

                        I've looked in two Home Depot's for the Ridgid See Snake Micro and apparently they no longer are stocking it in the stores. Of course neither the service desk or the orange aprons have any idea as to why. I've checked the Home Depot website and it's basically a week's delivery time plus shipping and tax.

                        I also looked at the Milwaukee version, but frankly I wasn't all that impressed for the $250 asking price. As far as I know, neither the See Snake Micro or the Milwaukee have any capabilities to save, record, or otherwise output the image; and of course, neither the Ryobi. It's apparent that you need to spend substantially more money to gain this save/output feature. But for my homeowner use, I don't see that as a necessity.

                        I certainly would have preferred Ridgid, but you can't buy it if they don't stock it and I would prefer not to put off the project for another week or so.

                        Here's the spec on the Ryobi:

                        4-stage LED

                        3-ft waterproof flex cable with 7/16 dia aluminum head.

                        2x digital zoom in four stages (1x, 1.3x, 1.7x, & 2x)
                        On screen image 180 rotation

                        On screen battery status

                        2.7 Hi-Rez color LCD (320 x 240)

                        4-volt Li Ion battery with charger with 5-hour continuous run time per charge

                        Camera is impact, dust, and water resistant resistant

                        While this is comparable (spec-wise) to the other scopes, there does not appear to be any extensions offered (But, I can't find where Home Depot offers extensions for the Ridgid either... though probably available elsewhere). Ryobi Warranty is 30-day, 2-year.

                        Once the battery is charged and I put it to work, I'll follow up with a post.

                          I am VERY unimpressed with the new table saw. I'll continue to stick with with my TS3650.

                          I mean come on man, it's a repainted Crapsman.

                            maybe you can start an online petition that people sign or say thanx to so we can get our grinder and impact wrench

                              Good idea but I think any new tools have to be approved by HD mgmt. I have a older Milwaukee made in USA 1/2 impact that is a beast, as good as most air driven but I would like a compact one. Using an adapter on 1/4" QD impact causes a significant reduction of torque applied.
