Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: TG
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: Undone
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: Don
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 211.

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.

After years of a using a cheap miter saw, i finally made the upgrade to this saw. I can't believe I waited this long. It has good power, a smooth slide, easy miters and bevels. Has some features that make you wonder where they were all my life like a cord storage and an amazing multi position clamp. I went with the 10in over the 12 due to multiple reviews of blade wobble. I replaced the stock blade and have perfectly smooth cuts. Unless you are going to keep on a table, i highly recommend spending the money and getting the MSUV as well. Makes moving, storing, and transporting a breeze.

The Laser and light are a great feature. Collects dust very well. I bolted it on a Kobalt stand no problem. I love the handle placement. Makes cutting with either hand a breeze! Don't hesitate, pick up this saw! Built this farmhouse table below and everything came out great!

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.

Great set of features, having the Miter and Bevel controls out front are great, cut 30+ pieces of baseboard and trim, most with 45 degree cuts and they lined up great every time. The power cord management is a nice touch, the 3 handles make moving this heavy saw easier, the Miter detents lock-in nice and solid. The included blade is excellent. I can't think of a negative or non-solid bit about this saw, extremely happy with it.

Am building a stand for it currently and using it to help build it. No complaints so far. For the price compared to other equivalent tools, I don't think it can be beat. Obviously it isn't Festool, but what normal person can afford their stuff. The picture is of the Fine Woodworking chopsaw stand that I'm in process of building........

I really like the features on this saw but had a problem with the fixed fence not being square. I contacted the customer warrenty service and was sent a replacement fence within 3 days. The replacement fence was easy to install and fixed the problem. The customer service was great.

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 .....
