Hey John, that's what I bought. I absolutely love it. It fits my hand, has tight tolerances and has a lifetime warranty. What more could you ask for!

I tend to think of HD as just 1 step up from Harbor freight. However, I dumped my Bosch and Porter Cable laminate trimmers for 4 of these Rigids. There are pretty well designed and I've not been able to wear one out yet. Only wish they came in designer colors so I could spot the right one easier.--Bob

agree this one is a fluke the ability to bolt it on the machine makes it very stout and the front adjustments are perfect.
I like it a lot better than the bosche and porter cables I had used in the past.

Word of warning - Rigid's lifetime warranty is only good if you buy at Home Despot. I bought a drill/impact driver duo not available at HD, and the palm router for $10 off and no shipping both on the interweb. They would not honor the warranty.

But they are all great tools anyway

HD sells Porter Cable, Ridgid, Bosch, Milwaukee, Dewalt, and Wen. I'm curious as to why it would be like Harbor Freight. I would never buy any motorized tool from harbor freight.
