Are Ryobi tools of a decent quality?
Okay so I've been a Craftsman guy for a long time now with an occasional Stanley tool thrown in there. I have a fairly broad selection of cordless power tools that I have acquired over the years. Just recently I purchased a closeout on a Ryobi hand-held wet tile saw (with no battery) for a bathroom remodel. The only reason I purchased was because I own a Ryobi auto-hammer that came with a battery and charger and I assumed the battery would fit the tile saw. Well it does not.
So I am now faced with a dilemma?
1. Should I purchase a battery and charger for the saw? The battery and charger are going to cost me twice what the saw did... I own a stationary tile saw and can probably clumsily make the cuts on it but will take a bit more effort.
2. Since the battery and chargers combo runs almost the same as a tool with battery, do I purchase another drill, circular saw, weed wacker???? Is Ryobi quality worth the additional investment?
3. Do you know of a cheap place for battery & charger?
