Customer Questions & Answers

Which is better for a beginner to build shelving / bookcase; sliding miter saw or table saw

Asked by: Anonymous
Definitely agree with "Sing". But for a little more than the price of this excellent Rigid CMS, you can have both! Look at the Ryobi 10" CMS (12" crosscut capacity) and the Ryobi 10 in. Portable Table Saw with Quick Stand (27" rip capacity). These saws are excellent entry level DIY tools. They are easy to store and easy to move around. Craftsman also has comparable saws. Watch all the YouTube videos on table saw safety! Saws do not cut...they cut off!!!

Does this saw have a stop and depth setting for dado cuts?

Asked by: Anonymous
It does but it appears worthless. The depth adjustment is very minor and you need to be careful not to hit the bottom under the table. The non-sliding miter saw has a much deeper cut and I never had to worry about depth. I just upgraded from a Ridged 10" non-slider to a 10" slider and I am disappointed at how shallow the cut goes. Not sure what I'll do now. Maybe go back and check out a DeWalt slider.

Does this 10" saw fit a specific Ridgid stand? If so, which stand accomodates this saw?

Asked by: Anonymous
This saw can fit almost any stand. I use a folding delta to move it around. Rigid stand is a lot better constructed.

If I buy this saw online, it still comes with the lifetime warranty correct?

Asked by: WoodWerx
Yes the Ridgid sliding miter saw come with a life time warranty if purchases online or in the store. You must redgiater the saw with Ridgid to obtain the warranty or settle for a three year warranty,if not registered.

10 in. Sliding Compound Miter Saw with Dual Laser Guide is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 210.

If you are a wood butcher with a framing axes on hip this is not the saw for you, buy a DeWalt 12" sliding miter but if you are stain grade finish craftsman you will love this saw. For twice or even 3 times the price you can't beat this saw. The soft start, center handle, ambidextrous trigger, front controls and blade brake give the cabinet quality craftsman a saw that can reduce his work load and make accurate reputable cuts. The dust collection pickup needs a little attention as do all miter saws but is a easy fix with a duct tape extension. The saw came set at dead on zero and the diablo blade is plus. The double laser can help production and gravity light is nice extra if you are cutting in low light conditions. In my opinion Ridgid set a new standard for finish miter saws with this 10 inch beauty.

Have cut rough barn wood to fine cut picture frames. Accuracy is excellent. The slow start and stop on the drive is an excellent feature. Operational controls are very ergonomic. I have worked in residential construction for years and this is my first Rigid power tool. Great Diablo blade.. I have always used these blades and this coming stock on the saw was an added bonus. So far I have been very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Well Thought Out Design I have used many many miter saws and use them daily (as a hardwood flooring installer, among many other carpentry tasks) over the last 12 years or so. Some cheap, some expensive (including Festool Kapex) and everything in between. I won't go into deep thought or detail about this $349 saw, because I don't think it's necessary. instead I will say this, it is solid and heavy, it is presise, has every feature as a saw costing much more(and alot they don't have i.e. the front bevel lock is just so sweet, you never have to reach behind the saw, led gravity light, crown stop on the slide, brilliant). Don't procrastinate like I did for the last 5mo just order it now before they sell out of them....again . Can't wait to get the Ridgid Miter saw stand too .....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw I was fortunate to walk into one heck of a deal on this saw. My HD was clearing this saw out to make room for another and I scored this exact saw for $175. I purchased the Ridgid miter saw folding stand for this and I couldnt be happier. I did have to adjust the fence and lasers right out of the box but it definetly is a quality product. It came with a 40 tooth Diablo blade and I purchased an 84 tooth Diablo for cutting molding. Its smooth, accurate, not too loud and the soft start is a nice feature. The dust collection could be better. I hooked up my shop vac to the dust port but it still throws a good amount in your work area. The dual laser rides on each side of the kerf so you know exactly where the blade is going to cut. It also had a gravity feed LED work light the shines directly on the cutting area on the table no matter the position of your blade. A great buy at the advertised $349 price but a huge score at the $175 I paid for it. Highly recommend. No regrets with Ridgid.

I bought this beast a week ago after finding out that this model was being discontinued. Given that I've had this on my wishlist for years, and that it's easily one of the BEST saws for under $600, I didn't want to miss the opportunity to own one. Last Saturday, I built some garage shelves at my dad's house, which required many miter cuts. Right out of the box this saw was cutting through 2x4s like they were butter. It is fairly heavy but that isn't necessarily a bad thing, the extra weight is due to the high quality of construction, giving me faith that this saw will easily last my lifetime. Notable features: + Diablo blade included + Dual guide lasers were calibrated perfectly right out of the box + Gravity LED light works very well in the poorly lit areas + All adjustment controls are up front and make life easy + Lifetime Service Agreement Sidenote: With the number of features and adjustments that this thing has, you will absolutely want to read the manual, even if you're a miter saw veteran.

The table was square to the fence and the blade was perpendicular to the table. My first cuts were dead on. The Diablo 40 tooth blade was put right to the test building Christmas tree stands cutting an entire pallet of pressure treated fence boards. I stacked them 3 high and cut them into three 2 foot pieces. Almost two hours of constant cutting The Diablo blade and Ridgid saw work great together, quick smooth cuts. I like both the soft start and the blade breaking. The soft start allowed the saw and shop vac to share the same outlet. No tripping of the circuit breakers.

I read a review on saw dust control and this saw , for its class and size, received the highest grade. Unfortunately even with a vacuum attached to its exhaust hole, my saw throws saw dust all over my shop. I owned a 12 Ridgid compound miter saw and it was fine. It threw saw dust but most of it went into the same vacuum my new one is attached to. It seems the vacuum chute on the saw is in its own way! I don't understand how the "best" in dust collection can be so bad. I haven't put the saw to any real challenge so all the other features I can't comment on. I bought it December 22, 2016 . so far I'm disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value in sliders I've been In the trades and a serious diy'er for 30+ years. I had not seen this saw in person because my local HD do not stock it. About .5 hours away to pick it up-- no problem. First of all, I think that Rigid has come a long way as a brand in general the last few years. IMO, 10" slide is the sweet spot on miter saws. It was packaged very well. I followed the manual as per set up, and to my surprise, it did not need even a single adjustment. Spot on perfect. Fence, miter angles, bevels, laser, all perfect. My first trim board cuts were equally impressive. Not even a chip in my paint coat. No tear out. Not even 1 splinter. Granted, I use quality blades, but the saw is smooth. Also, I like the large platform, lower rpm motor, soft start, and the up front adjustments and locks. Yeah, I like this saw. It is a good value, and exceeded my expectations. No comparison to my previous 10" slide (m*****), which was light blue. The Rigid miter saw stand (if you need portability) is very nice too. Plus, it matches the saw color. I'm that way. I have NO affiliation withRigid or HD. Highly recommended.
