I was in HD yesterday looking at Ridgid planers. The TP1300 and the 4330. They had about 5 of the 4330's and one display model 1300 that was totally beat up. The brushes were gone, the top was dented, the power cord was mangled, there was no box or manual, it had a heavy coating of dust on it, and in general, it looked like it needed help. So, I asked the guy what he'd sell it to me for. He called the manager and the manager said they can't sell it to me at any price because if I get hurt, they are liable. So, I asked the obvious question "If you can't sell it to me, you can't sell it to anybody. So, what will you do with it?" He said they would probably dispose of it. WHAT???? Yes, I heard right. They have to throw it away. Can you believe it? So I said "Tell you what. You throw it away and I'll dig it out of the dumpster. That way you can say I stole it and you won't be liable." He said he can't do that either because they are liable for their trash too. Sheessh. I just couldn't win with that place. What has this world come to?
