I have'nt been on this forum a real long time,but I noticed many questions on subjects other than Ridgid tools.Personally,I love it I learn new stuff too! Some advice to anyone,I guess,is to use your libraries around you! I use libraries in two counties.I found one with a ton of newer and older books(some brand new for sale at woodcraft!)on subjects about finishing,tool maintenance,joinery,cabinets,etc. The list goes on and on! Also some good videos too! The ladies at the info desk can find books for you from other libraries in the area! I have made tons of photocopies,and have one heck of a file system to look stuff up in my own little "library".Use those libraries,and use those books for ideas on your own.I still use 'em and probably will continue.Check out as many books as you want!
