Ridgid Drill going into the trash
I finally got fed up with my Ridgid 18v drill I bought this past summer. From the time I bought it it's been a pain. First the brushes sparked like crazy and learned that had to run it full speed for a while to get it broke in (can't they do this at the factory in China?), then one of the batteries wasn't charging correctly, found a bent pin, and for the past month or so the trigger is cutting out. Anyway, I picked up a new Dewalt tonight, no sparks, and runs great.
I'll probably send the Ridgid in for service since it's a life-time warranty, but they said it would take at least two weeks before I saw it again.
