    Anyone have one and if so are they any good for $299?

    The best part of the RIGID brand is that they are guaranteed for life. This includes the batteries on the cordless tools.

    Rigid is owned now by Emerson Electric who was once, and may still be, a prime supplier for Sears power tools. Probably a fairly close knock-off to the Craftsman line-up...least their shop vacs are.
    Miller 251...sold the spoolgun to DiverBill.
    Miller DialArc 250
    Lincoln PrecisionTig 275
    Hypertherm 900 plasma cutter
    Bridgeport "J" head mill...tooled up
    Jet 14 X 40 lathe...ditto
    South Bend 9" lathe...yeah, got the change gears too
    Logan 7" shaper
    Ellis 3000 band saw
    Hossfeld bender w/shopbuilt hyd.
    Victor Journeyman torch and gauges
    3 Gerstner boxes of mostly Starrett tools
    Lots of dust bunnies
    Too small of a shop at 40 X 59.
