Hey Larry , I purchased one of these at a local box store , plugged it in , went got some lunch , came back and hit the start button , and got nothing more than a hum. took it back.
but hey, it's a Ridgid with a lifetime warranty! (that takes around 6 months to get back, which is why I don't buy Ridgid products, seriously)
I've also heard both raves and rants about this product...typical of most things made today (China I'm sure) it's a crap shoot to get anything that is actually put together with acceptable tolerances that would allow it to operate properly for a long time before breaking.
Don't even get me going on the totally junk bearings used in most everything these days.
Mine works very well. I use it quite a bit. Mainly for taking guitar parts down close to the template. I even use it for fret ends. Makes quick work of sanding the fret ends almost flush with the board.
