rlitman: I didn't realized my curiousity would cause such a stir. No, didn't know I was going to get the Ryobi. I came on here with all of these question (i'm an engineer by trade) but I learned a lot by asking and researching. It appears that too many of y'all make such random assumptions through out.
I'm not sure where my negativity lied on this thread; feel free to point it out.
Again, thanks guys!
