Purchased 10" compound miter saw sometime ago and have used it lightly around the house. I was in the middle of finishing my basement when it quit working. I called Home Depot and was assured that I could bring it it and exchange it for a new one. When I got there I was told that their policy has changed and tools are now sent out for repair not exchanged. I was charged $35 to ship the tool out too a third party repair company. After 2 weeks, I got a call stating that my tool could only be repaired if I paid an additional $231 because the motor and switch arnt covered under the warrantee. After several very non-helpful phone calls to Ridgid, and 3 hours of my time, I find out that pretty much all parts are excluded from that warrantee. I will never buy a Ridgid again!!!!!
