  • 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.

        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.
