In the new Tools and Shops issue of Fine Woodworking, they have an article
on page 34 talking about the new Rigid tool line.
Here are a few quotes I found informative
",the company (Ridge Tool Co.) will license the Rigid brand name to the One
World Technologies, which will build the tools overseas."
"One World Technologies is part of Techtronic Industries (TTI), a Hong Kong
"TTI has owned Ryobi Power Tools in North America since August 2000. TTI
also builds some power tools for the Sears/ Craftsman line."
"In addition, Ridge Tools has revised its product warranty for this new
line. Instead of the previous lifetime warranty, which covered material
defects and workmanship, the company now has a 90-day satisfaction guarantee
and a three-year limited warranty."
