Hello all. Well I took the plunge today. After reading all I could find on the units, I decided to not wait for the NEW Ridgid tools to show up at my local HD. I just couldn't sell myself on all that orange. Luckily my local store still had some of the good ole gray on hand. I ended up taking home the Dp1550 drill press with Mortising kit, TP1300 planer/stand combo, and the JP06101 jointer. the jointer was the floor model so I got the last one in this region (lucky me!). It was run for a demo though and I noticed some small nicks in the knives so HD said they'd send me a new set as well as the missing owners manual. Had to adjust the outfeed table on the Jointer, in/out tables on the planer. Once set right, they work beautifully.Ran Red Oak, very dense/hard Honduras Mahogany, African Mahogany, Pine and even some Fir, couldn't be happier. Really glad I didn't go wih the 2 spd Delta planer and Craftsman jointer I'd been looking at. Mortising kit goes on easy enough and worked really well. Hope the new stuff meets all our expectations, still need a spindle sander!
No announcement yet.
Didn't want to wait for the ORANGE!
