Milwaukee may be on to something!  It looks like RIDGID is following suite and building quality trade specific tools like its sister company.  Actually, RIDGID has always had speciality plumbing tools, so maybe it is the other way around.  I am confused!  Either way TTI has been making all the right moves lately and seeing record profits. Well it looks like we now have another specialty tool from RIDGID, it sort of resembles an air saw.  It is the RIDGID Roofing Cutter, powered by compressed air it is $99 at The Home Depot.
