    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.

      The mini-saw is another one that came to be, but not as a JobMax attachment.

    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.

        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.

        I am going to use one of my empty Festool Systainers to store my JobMax consoles and attachment heads in. I have them in there now, but I want to build some nice dividers to hold each piece so they are not banging around in there during transport.

      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.

            A right angle die grinder head with 1/4" collet would be nice or a 2 inch
            right angle disc sander but the 1/4" collet would add so many options.

            Might need to step up the RPM using gears, the JobMax RPM might be
            too slow for some rotary tools.

            There are a couple 2 inch disc sanders out there already so there must be a market.
            But I will never buy one because it would mean buying into a new battery platform.
            I would buy one that was part of the JobMax system though because I do have a use
            for a small disc sander or a right angle die grinder that I could mount a small disc or pad in.

              YES!!! A Die Grinder would be an amazing cordless tool. Even as a stand alone not a Job Max. We need 20-24k RPM. Maybe the 12volt 4.0 AH Battery? This as a tool to clean mating surfaces like with Roloc Disks would be extremely useful!
