  • Question about TP1300LS planer.

    Does anyone know what the difference is between the TP 1300LS and TP1300 besides the color. Did Ridgid ever sell TP 1300's with the orange trim? Any finally, does the TP1300LS normally come with the dust chute attachment? Thanks.

    As far as I know they are the same except for color. When I baught my TP1300 it came with the dust chute and a leg set. Not sure about the legs coming with the LS Just checked the manual http://www.ridgid.com/CatalogDocs/TP1300_316_eng.pdf and the leg set and dust chute do come with the LS model too.

      Different tool and different manufacturer but the only difference between the Delta SS-350 scrollsaw and the Delta SS-350LS scrollsaw is that the 350LS come with a Leg Stand and the 350 doesn't.

        Dave, what the heck does your "DELTA" scroll saw got to do with a "RIDGID" planer? Inquiring minds want to know! LOL

          Dan,

          Dave is pointing out that the LS most likely is the manufacturers code for the tool WITH the LEG SET, and that is what the similarity is between the planer and the scroll saw.

            That works for Delta but not Ridgid, they addedthe LS to all the tools when they went orange

              Absolutely nothing. I was just throwing out a possible hypothesis.

                You guys were right again. I called Ridgid customer service a little while after I started this post and they said there is no difference between the 1300 and 1300LS except the Leg Set. I also asked if there were any differences between the grey and the orange and the answer was no. I was asking this cause the planer I picked up came with the Leg Set but the owners manual was for the 1300 instead of the 1300LS which actually is different (the manual that is). They don't mention the dust chute in the 1300 manual, or at least don't have any pictures of it.

                  I'm setting up my shop in my garage. I have looked at the Dewalt, Delta, and the Rigid. Will someone give me a performance comparison? Why would I pick the Rigid over the Dewalt 733 3-knife?

                  Thanks

                    I think you mean the DeWalt 734 or 735 3-knife models, as the 733 has been discontinued. Any of those you're looking are well respected and should do a good job. Once set up properly it'd be hard to tell the difference in the end result. In theory, 3 blades spinning at the same speed at the same feed rate should give a smoother finish than two. That said, none of them are so smooth that I woulnd't do some light high grit sanding prior to finishing. There's also no free lunch...literally, replacement of 3 blades costs ~ 50% more than 2 knives. Again, in theory, they should last a bit longer, but in real world use, most of the time I change my blades because of a ding in them and not due to dulling...with 3 blades you'll just ding 3 instead of 2. My advice is to pick the one you like best or can get the best deal on.

                      I have both the DeWalt(735) and Ridgid and when comparing surfaces there's not enough difference to matter to me. The DW may produce a slightly smoother surface on some woods. The Ridgid comes with an extra blades, stand and in/out feed tables. These are all extras on the DW. With the in/outfeed tables adjusted I've not experienced snipe. I haven't planed any long boards and I support the wood very lightly as it comes out. The dust collection is good on both machines. The Ridgid has shop vac hook up on one end of the collecter and a removable plug on the other end to accomodate a 4"hose and the plug closes the outlet on the other end. They're both heavy and noisy. They both do a really good job but the Ridgid costs around $150 less and comes with extras that cost around $175 if you buy them for the 735. Regardless of cost the DeWalt has a large network of factory repair centers.
