I purchased the Ridgid for $299, and it is better than HF but worse than a
Laguna, on par with a Delta. Blade changeout is tedious, but not too bad.
There is excessive play in the adjustment of the blocks, but it can be
overcome pretty easy. There are micro guides to most of the settings. The
blade tension adjustment is on par with most. One recommendation - replace
the stock v-belt with a link belt. I have emailed others who have teh same
problem. My belt has a "bump" which causes a lot of vibration...
