    I've had my Ridgid TS2412 for almost a year now and I couldn't be happier with it. I added a Her-cu-lift about a month after I got it, because yes my shop is in one car garage too! The set up instructions were clear, and everything went together without any problems. Take the time to READ the instructions, and you will not be disapointed!

      I have a strong distaste for reverse engineering. To me it is basically stealing another person's idea.

      I like Ridgid because they didn't copy anyone's pattern although I'm told they did manufacture Sears for a number of years.

      If you really look at Ridgid's design you will see they incorporated a number of interesting improvements not found in Delta or Delta look alikes.

      As for the Shop Fox fence, again it's probably as good as the original.

      In my opinion if you want cutting edge (no pun intended) you have to be willing to pay the inovator. If you don't expect improvement and refinement then any copy will do.
