Customer Questions & Answers

What is the advantage to wiring the table saw for 240v rather then 120v?

Asked by: dapatch
One aspect not addressed in all the other answers is startup time. SInce 220V draws half the amperage, the excess current draw at startup time doesn't slow it down. But in the 110V mode, it make take 4-5 seconds to get up to speed. The other aspect is when you load the saw down, and it draws more current, the line loss is higher for 110V operation so it slows down more. I have wired my saw for 110 and 220 and 220 is far better (if you have it available)

Do the screws hold the throat plate in place?

Probably seems like a dumb question but I am a rookie with this stuff. It seems obvious that the screws would hold it in place but once I did it it did not look right. Did not make sense to me that the screws weren't flush with the plate. And the assembly instructions never mention screws so I am thinking that the screws stay in the holes underneath the throat plate and throat plat simply slides into its slot?
Asked by: Rook
The screws go under the plate and are for adjusting the height of the plate, not to hold it down.

does this saw come with a blade?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, but buy a better one to optimize your investment....keep the stock blade for cutting construction stuff and junk wood. Infinity, Forrest, Ridge Carbide, Freud, Freud Diablo, CMT, Marples, Tenryu....all are much better blades.

It mentioned a Riving knife! its useless unless is moving with the blade
Asked by: alonim12
Yes. It's a true riving knife; not a splitter

13 Amp 10 in. Professional Cast Iron Table Saw is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 575.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This saw is solidly built, it weighs a good 100 pounds more than the similar sized saw it replace... This saw is solidly built, it weighs a good 100 pounds more than the similar sized saw it replaced. It is adequately powered, the table is solid and flat. Overall, I am happy with it. The only issue (and based on my research this is a problem that is not uncommon with this saw) is that the trunion shifts when you raise the blade and again when you tighten the lockdown on the blade height wheel. Between the two, it shifts the blade towards the fence at the rear by 15 thousands. Not enough to cause concern about kickbacks, but enough to create a problem when doing critical cust, such as shoulder cuts on tenons. If I raise the blade above where I want it, then lower it, and don't tighten the lockdown, then the blade is only out of true by about 3 thousandths. This simply means I have to turn the wheel a little past where I need it and turn it back by a half turn.

When you get it home, before you begin assembly, lay a straight edge across the cast iron table - left to right. There are MANY of these saws that are shipped with a warped top and the ONLY way Ridgid/Home Depot will honor the warranty is if you bring the whole thing back - a royal pain if you've gotten it fully assembled! Unfortunately, I found out my table was warped after full assembly and some use. The "high point" seems to be just to the left of the blade opening, with the table dropping off on both sides of that. I requested Ridgid's spec for table flatness and was told .016". Mine is way worse than that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't be happier Some of those negative reviews don't look like they're reviewing the same saw I just brought home last week. Sure I had to put on my big boy britches and take time to align the fence rails. I expect to spend time assembling and calibrating my tools. The fence is pretty darn accurate, I'd say within hundredth's of an inch right out of the box. My table appears perfectly flat. The blade is dead on perpendicular to the table up and down and the heel seems parallel to the miter slots. I haven't pulled out the digital micrometer yet, so far it doesn't seem necessary. Maybe when I start trying to produce some fine jewelry boxes I'll go to that extreme.

It did take quite a bit of adjusting to be just right. Actually stripped a small screw from having to adjust the rip fence so many times. Called Ridgid and they sent a replacement right away. I have made a few projects already and I am so pleased that everything is nice and square and fit so accurately together. Nice clean cuts. I did replace the blade with a 60 tooth model though. My only complaint with the saw is the main rail that mounts and holds the rip fence. It is a two piece and really took a lot of adjustment to have a smooth joint between the two. Maybe I got a bum one? It's still not perfect but I'll give it a light sanding and polish when I get a chance and it should be OK. It's seems to have plenty of power and is solid as a rock when lowered down off the casters. I looked at a lot of table saws before buying this one. I wasn't impressed with any of the other models in this price range. I couldn't find a Ridgid R4512 assembled anywhere in my area so I went by the reviews here and all over the internet. In my onion, anything better was many, many hundreds of dollars more. Home Depot is definitely the lowest price for this saw. If this is within your price range, this is the saw to buy. But remember there may be some adjustments to be made. Get some help to move and assemble it. It's heavy. Plus an extra hand always helps. There are also plenty of videos on line to help assemble it and many reviews to watch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cast iron table not true/straight I already knew that many people have issue with the blade not being true/alignment. However, I know of a lot of people not having any issues with it either. So on 11/25/2016, I went ahead and bought one. Today 11/26/2016 at approximately 1600 hours, I started to put it together. After installing the base/legs and flipping it up, I went ahead and checked the cast iron table so I can align the extension tables. So, I used a 4 foot level, and I noticed that the left side was lower than the center and right side. So, I went ahead and got a straight hedge ruler just to make sue the level wasn't the issue. I again noticed that the left side was about 1/8th of an inch lower than the center / right side of the cast iron table. Well, I was pretty excited to get this table saw hoping I would save money, but instead I will have to spend some time returning it. I'm lucky that my wife went ahead and gave me the okay to buy a better saw. I guess if you do framing work this table saw would be okay, but when you are building furniture it's a different story.

Not the best table saw but I think it is the best non portable saw for the money. I just do not know why it is impossible to see this saw put together in a store. I strongly believe they would sell more of these if you could see a sample. So, I bought one, put it together and it worked out fine. Also, it has a real old fashioned metal, large miter gauge. I could not get a sales person to show me one since he would not open the box unless I bought it. To me the miter gauge was the must have component and this saw delivered.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap. Poor'ish Craftsmanship. Poor Quality Control. Great for Amateurs. NOT a Pro Tool. First one had blade shift/alignment issues as-apparently-a result of faulty trunnions, which resulted in blade heel/parallel issues. After much calibration and frustration and the constant smell of burning wood and binding, I decided to try again. Got a new saw. Where to start? 1. The entire table surface is uneven. Unfixable. 2. They changed the caster system to a 3 caster instead of 4. This was a stupendously stupid move. They are horrible now. Why strip the saw of a great feature? Cost? Why not focus instead on the unreliable fence and rails instead? 3. This one has blade shift issues too. Not horrible, but we'll see. 4. Also this one has heel/parallel issues when beveling. This could be a deal-breaker. 5. Miter gauge won't fit in the miter gauge holder-thingy on the side. 6. The rail-spreader is crooked. 7. The saw slams down when lowering it using the casters. Quality control is lacking. I'd pay $100 more for this same saw with the above items fixed, including an upgraded fence/rails. In Ridgid's defense, their customer care is good. LSA is good. I see what they're trying to do with this saw, and they're close. Just fix the imperfections and I'll be happy.

The blade that it comes with is the thin-kerf variety and worked extremely well with everything I threw at it. Assembly was a bit challenging being that I assembled the saw alone, but nothing that proved to be overly difficult. The safety features are excellent and cutting accuracy was very good. Fit and finish was typical of equipment made in China. I have owned this saw for just two and a half months and have had zero problems with it. Overall , it is a joy to use and I am extremely happy with my purchase. HIGHLY recommended!
