  • JobMax Attachment Suggestions

    I thought there was a thread with suggestions and comments on the various attachments for the
    JobMax but I didn't find it in a search, so I started this one up to collect everyones' comments.

    I was using my JobMax the other day with the sanding pad and thinking it would be nice to have a rotary sanding disc about 2 inches in diameter. I've seen this tool in other brands recently but they are of course a stand alone tool, not one with interchangeable heads like the JobMax. I'm not going to buy into yet another battery platform to add this to my collection, but if there was a JobMax attachment I would grab it. It wouldn't have to be a dedicated sander, it could be a right angle die grinder head with a 1/4" collet. That would let you use many different rotary tools. I guess the right angle drill head would work if you have one, but they are no longer available are they.

    If anyone is looking for a manual or parts sheet for a JobMax or any other tool, look here:

    I suggest you find the PDF copies of all your tools that are listed here and download a copy because apparently this list is only the active tools. So when your saw, drill, or whatever tool is no longer offered it will probably disappear from this list. And we all know how hard it is to find these documents once the tool is out of production.

    If I can remember any of the other attachments I have suggested in the past I will list them here. If anyone else something on their wish list feel free to add to this thread. Maybe someone from RIDGID/TTI will stumble across it and give it some thought. Ya never know.

    Nice to find someone who is as impressed with this tool as I am. I'm a contractor...and this tool is...without the slightest doubt...the absolute BEST tool I have. For one VERY big reason: I can carry just about every tool I need for most jobs IN ONE SINGLE BAG!!! For the most part they're pretty decent tools as well. I have tried countless times to get through to the idiots at Ridgid that they have a winner here...but no one seems to get it!!! I recommend this thing to everyone I know in the trades...and as soon as they can get their hands on one they're a believer.

    As for new tool attachment angle grinder would be great...and a small circular saw (4 1/2"). Your idea of a rotary sanding disc is a good one.

    Maybe someone ought to start a thread with best tool on the market. I would put my money on the jobmax...ALL my money!'s that good!
