    How about a mini-saw with a 3-1/2" blade or there about.

    Something with a straight drop for plunge cutting and 1-3/8" depth of cut so it can handle up to 5/4 stock.

    Maybe include a dust port that a 1-1/4 vac hose can attach to and contain as much sawdust as possible.

      I asked about a brushless, tool free 18volt jobmax on facebook, and Ridgid responded later half of 2016. We loyal Ridgid owners will just have to wait , maybe there will be some other surprises in store?

        I would like some type of stackable tool box for the jobmax with area of each head and blades, bits etc... for each head. Such as the jigsaw would have the jigsaw head and additional area by it to have various blades. Drill would have place for various bits and so on so on. That would be very handy for me.

          That's not a bad idea. I can see something like this catching on. Would also make the basis for a JobMax starter kit which included a couple heads (with blades where appropriate ) or maybe let buyer pick two or three heads of their choice to bundle with the JobMax and toolbox all for a fixed price. Would make a great Christmas promotion.

          Just got to look at FESTO and FEIN tools. Yeah they are German but they look at containerising everything becasue they understand real tradesmen. problem with some RIDGID tools is the container would be huge

          Yes, Cleanmen2, some of the Systainers are big. The width and depth are the same so they can be
          interlocked together and stacked. My TSC55 stores in a SYS5 box which is about 16.5" (420mm) high.

          It is a nice system for storing your tools, but expensive.

        That makes my solution of using whatever random bag I can find to put the tools in and empty framing nail plastic boxes for the miscellaneous bits and parts appear so ghetto...

            Here's some ideas for JobMax accessories.
            The Festool Vecturo is like a Fein Multimaster or the RIDGID JobMax with the cutter head.
            Festool has some very useful accessories for their tool, take a look.
            Video is in German but translated to English, still worth watching, the video explains it all.
            No doubt Festool has a patent on these accessories so we are not likely to see anything show
            up for the JobMax but ya never know.
