Not sure if it qualifies as either, but I just bought a store demo
Ridgid 6" jointer for $199, new in the box Ridgid Planer for $250, and
a new in the box Ridgid 14" Bandsaw for $250. The US made Ridgid
closeout seems to be in full swing at the Borg and with no payment no
interest financing I couldn't resist. Now if the K-bodies would just
go on clearance...
I come out of <LURK> mode to say:
No offense, but I've used some of those Rigid items you mention, and in my
never-to-be-humble opinion, you qualify for sympathy, not a gloat.
I don't envy you setting up that damn bandsaw for anything too ambitious.
By the way, I have a used 8" Craftsman radial arm saw I could let you have
at an attractive price. ;)

Well it's been said many times here, but I've got all the items mentioned
and haven't had a single problem with any of them. The bandsaw does do a lot
better job with a good blade though. Just resawed some 5" walnut for some
panels. Came out great. Just my opinion, but good gloat you got there.
