    I have the Wixey on my Ridgid DP. I like it. I mounted the Wixey on the left and the OEM is on the right. In case it matters, the OEM is the dial type, not the rod type.

    Hope it helps.

    Nice toy chest! I especially like the air gap on the front - easy to lift the lid and keeps it from sealing tightly. (Dont want to hurt a child who climbs inside to "hide".)

    Can you show us a front-on view of the "right side"? It's hard for me to judge the condition of that side from the perspective shown in the first picture. (The side I am interested in is "face down"...

    Thanks for posting this. I have the record 52 and repaired it with a locking collare several years ago. But it's good to have your alternate fix in case mine fails. Appreciate it!
