Lee, this post was made before the Ridgid was widely available. Several people I have spoken with have said nice things about them. They have about doubled the amount of distributors they have since this was first posted. I look forward to trying one; after all, that is the only fair way to rate it's performance.

Yep, you are right -- gotta watch when things were posted. I'll have to admit that although I read the two reviews, I just had this feeling it would be a great tool, based on the feel, and the fact that lately I've become the "poster boy" for Ridgid! (With the exception of getting the 13" DeWalt planer -- what a sweet machine!)

Hopefully I'll post some favorable comments on the router, after I have a chance to really put it to test. Or, I'll be sharing my recipe for "Humble Pie" with all of you ...

Hi mighty wood workers
I have the ridgid 2900 kit it works well, but it seems that ridgid has no accesory. My kit has vacum attachtments but I wonder if I will have a hard time finding things that will fit it. I did find brass guides for my dove tail jig and that gives me hope. I do live my router. I see that it cut nice and the lighted area makes it nice.

Question Which Router plate did you use?

Hi, I was wondering which plate you used for your router. I have a 2390 and I love it. I want to drop it into a table but am not sure which plate to buy for compatability/durability. Any help would be much appreciated and thanks a lot!!

In the table with a little practice the bits are easy to change above the table, the collet lock can be tricky to hold the first few times in the table but I have not had any problems. Here's a few pics:

I also believe the variable speed is just one more thing to go wrong
Variable speed is a must have on a router. different size bits require different speeds.

I have one of the RIGID router sets and it is a nice piece, but it is not my favorite of the several I own. I read through the entire thread and didn't even see it mentioned. The Milwaulkee Body-Grip is my "go-to" unit.
I bought the RIGID for the multiple-base kit. It's mostly for the plunge base. I don't use a plunge router very often, but it works fine for me.

Anyone remember when RIGID brand was mostly the trusted tools known to plumbers, and pipe fitters? Well now it's giving the the Dewalt's and others a run for the market share on all kinds of tools out there.

I've worked for Home Depot over a year now, and the best I can say is it's all about the "VENDOR". What I mean to say is that it's what the vendor want's to promote is dictated by a manufacturer as to what cool power tools we see, and where.

Now in the case of the Rigid Router Combo (Yea I own one, and even mounted it to a Ryobi router table!), The deal is not a bad investment. Variable speed, two different sets of collets(1/4" & 1/2"), guide pin, plunge or stationary base, light that even shines through the tinted vaccum bit saftey cover on the Ryobi table, 2 wrenches, but only need one when loosening the collet because of the push button motor rotation lock, side band strap release for fast adustment in depth + the fine adjustment screw, and last but not least! The Life time warranty on parts, and service!

I use mine darn near every day, and of course there is always the true method of useing any router of choice. Don't try to cut the deep groove in one pass, take baby steps!
Also Home Depot stores are every where! Even in Mexico, and Canada these days as well as the US, and they are always running tool sales!
Go Oranange in tools and shopping experience!
