With all the coorispondence with Ridgid, this is what was agreed upon in which I think we are all satisfied with.
Ridgid is issuing a refund for the band saw. When the riser kits are available I will be receiving a replacement. For all the work I've put into them, set backs and bad timing of the whole ordeal, they are not requiring either one of the saws to be returned.
Ridgid let me know that for some of my resawing operations that the saw was not the correct choice, nor was any other saw in it's class. Someday...I'll have to invest in a more appropiate saw. But the Ridgid will do just fine for most common woodworking tasks.
