  • To all those who have made the RIDGID woodworking forums a success...

    To all active RIDGID Woodworking Forum members,

    First I want to thank you very much for making this forum a success. All of you who post on a regular basis have taken this from an obscure bulletin board on a manufacturer’s web site to an active, vibrant community. While I have always tried to cultivate this community and make it grow, it is the participants and the information exchanged here that have helped this board to expand and mature. It is my wish that this community should continue for some time to come and that people continue to answer questions and give advice in the way that has made this board a success.

    That said, I am handing over the reins of this forum to a new moderator. While it has been my pleasure to moderate and guide this group for the past couple years, I am pursuing a new career opportunity and will no longer be able to continue in this roll. I’m sure you’ll find the person replacing me extremely competent and eager to help whenever needed.

    Bob Dueker has been with Emerson Tool Company for nearly15 years, has taught woodworking and is an avid woodworker. He will not only be able to answer your questions about RIDGID tools, but many of your woodworking questions as well. His screen name is bdueker

    I will check in from time to time to see how everyone is doing or whenever my own woodworking problems might arise.

    Once again, I want to thank every one for their participation in the RIDGID Woodworking Forum. It is because of you that this community has been such a success.

    Best Wishes,

              Good luck Jake. Any clues as to what you'll be doing?

              Hopefully, Mr.Dueker can be as helpful and attentive/quick on e-mails as you have been.

              Best of luck.

                  Thanks for all of your support here, Jake. The board wouldn't have been nearly as good without your hard work representing Ridgid. Good luck to you in your new career. [img]smile.gif[/img]

                          Thanks for all the help and guidance you've provided in the past. I'm sure you're looking forward to your next position with the excitement that new challenges offer. Good luck.

                          I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

                            Jake, Well Done !!

                            You and the other people on this board has changed my perspective and opinion about Rigid Tools.

                            I think the 3512 TS may be one of the best kept secrets in WW.

                            Good luck....
