I purchased my Jet JBOS-5 new back when it was on sale for less than $300.
I have the older model of the portable Ridgid CMS stand. Other than that I've never been fond of the relationship between Ridgid & Home Depot.
Ever since I was told about a sale on a battery powered set of Ridgid tools I even saw the display setup sheets on Friday evening & the sale was to be on Saturday I got up early to make sure I was there for the sale when I arrived they said HD had canceled the sale. Plus all the horror stories on the internet. My buddy purchased a Ridgid ROS to replace his worn out DeWalt it was less expensive & with less vibration he likes it real well.
It was at this time I discovered Ryobi & the fact I could buy only what I needed in battery powered tools & the rest is history.
