  • Ridgid Workstand

    Anyone had any issues with the handle on the Ridgid Workstand, http://www.popularmechanics.com/home...p/1274496.html, breaking off? I went to tighten it today and it just stapped off. I wasn't tightening it very tight either. Looks like the handle is made of cast aluminum. Has anyone had to replace theirs for the same reason?
    No, the half of the missing finger was not power tool related.

    I have two of these. One is an early model, maybe 2 years old and the second one is around
    six months old. I have not had any negative experiences with either units. Perhaps you're a user that tightens things too much? All you need to do is make it "snug" If you apply too much torque you can break the handle.

      I own 4 of those now, and I haven't had no issues with any of them. I think that they are down right cool, serves me in many different applications too.
      Great Link for a Construction Owner/Tradesmen, and just say Garager sent you....

        I also have had a couple of these for quite a few years now without any trouble at all.

          I have four, 2 old/original issue and 2 of the later vintage. None of the four have given me any problems.

          Like Dave and Garager I recommend them if you are in the market for a stand, they are very versatile.
          "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
          John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
