    Honolulu,, Hi.

    I know in the beginning Ridgid had a good company making their routers and sander. Where use yours made?

    I bought a corded half inch VSR hammer drill that when first offered around 17-18 years ago they were made for Ridgid in West Germany by Metabo. I even had a Ridgid rep confirm this at a woodworking show back then. Within two years of buying it they started making them in China instead. There was a 6 inch sander at the time that had the same path on manufacture back then too, but I never bought it.

    Yup that’s right, it was Metabo. I have a old Ryobi router that was made in the USA.

    Here, just went and took some pics of my old drill in question. I still use it on occasion for non-SDS bits.

    It got used plenty years ago. Must have sunk 100 Tapcons with it for my shop floor install alone.

    Does ridgid still make this drill?

    No idea.

    I used my little Ridgid 18V air compressor I bought on clearance a couple of years ago with my Senco roofing nailer to install shingles on a small lean-to shed roof the other day.

    It did the job, but there’s no way if it wasn’t for how slow I work versus somebody who does roofing regularly this would be a compressor appropriate for this job. It had to recharge every half dozen or so nails, and doing about 1 1/2 bundles of shingles, I went thru about a half dozen charges of the 2.5 ah batteries I was swapping.

    RIDGID makes a good tool. Their warranty is great and the RIDGID tools I have, have all performed well.
