I recently fried my TS24000 motor by ripping too many long lengths
of heavy yellow pine stock. I found that the replacement motor costs
$253.00. Does anyone know of another brand motor that would mount in
this saw and be somewhat cheaper?
Had a problem with a Rigid planner a while back. The "lifetime
warrenty" only applies to "manufacturing defects in the product", NOT
normal wear and tear.... Thankfully, Rigid determined that the failure
of my planner was a manufacturing defect..
I looked at a discounted jointer at Home Depot the other day, marked at
about $400. I asked if they would drop the price more? Nope!
Told them I would rather buy a open stand JET. Their reply, "But Ridgid has
a lifetime warranty!" I told them to stick their warranty.
In their [Rigid's] defense, I do like the planner, no setup, was good
out of the box, blades easy to change, no snipe as long as you use the
depth locking device. Its just that the salespeople do mis-represent
the warrenty aspect a bit.
Like they say RTFP (Read The Fine Print)..... :-)
