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.

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 585.
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 I was excited to get this saw, I really was. Especially after reading all the positive reviews (... I was excited to get this saw, I really was. Especially after reading all the positive reviews (after Ridgid apparently fixed the issues with the alignment when raising/lowering the blade). So, I went out and purchased one, brought it home and set it up. Set-up was pretty standard/easy - a little time consuming making sure everything is square, etc. which is where my issues started... After fully assembling the table, I started making adjustments to square everything away. I found, when aligning the blade to the miter slot, it was off in the rear by .020 inches leaning towards the fence. As these are TABLE mounted trunnions, you have to remove the casing on the back of the saw, loosen the bolts that hold the trunnions up and make your adjustments. That is all fine and good and should be expected. HOWEVER, when you tighten the bolts back down after this laborious task (seriously takes a while) - the trunnions will move back to their original positions. I spent forever and a day researching alignment issues for this saw and the only options I found was to: 1. Use an f-clamp to bring the trunnions into place and then tighten the bolts down (attach it to the motor casing and the outside of the cabinet). This seemed like it would work - but it didn't. Once the clamp is released, the trunnions slide back into position once again. This is after torquing down on the bolts as well - so it wasn't a matter of pressure. After doing this 5 or 6 times, I gave up. 2. Saw PALS - these are an awesome little addition to any contractor saw. The problem is, they don't fit the r4512 and the manufacturer doesn't plan on making them. I have a machinist in my neighborhood willing to make these for me or you can just make them out of some good angle iron yourself for probably under 3 bucks worth of hardware. I was GOING to make my own "PALS" but during the tweaking of the saw, I found some other issues. The fence, while it works fine, the face was not flat and was bubbled out. A really bad extrusion. The top was not flat as well - off by about a 32nd of an inch. So, I returned the saw to HD and had them exchange it for another. Almost 3 weeks later (as they don't sell these in my local HD), I got the 2nd one delivered to the store. I had them unbox and assemble the saw (figured I'd get it home and tweak it later) - before taking it home, I checked everything. The first thing I checked was the top. It wasn't flat again - this time off by OVER 1/16" in more than one location. One of the workers there that does woodworking also was looking it over with me and was in 100% agreement that it had to be returned. So, a 3rd one came in - fully assembled (they actually did a decent job with assembly this time). The top was flat, the fence again was not but I knew from previous experience Ridgid support would send me another one until it was correct so I wasn't super worried about that. The blade was once again off by .015 tilting towards the fence. Now, I was under the assumption that the holes in the trunnions weren't bored out properly to give my first saw enough space to move when tightened back down and at this point, I wanted to get out of the store as I was there for over 2 hours waiting for the saw to be put in front of me, etc. so I put it in the truck and went home. Got it in my shop, pulled the back off and went at the trunnions again to get the blade aligned to the miter slot. Nope... They slip right back into position. Now, I'm at my wits end. I wrote Ridgid support (if you need them, call them - they're much better over the phone). 5 days later, I got a response saying that there are no instructions in the manual to help resolve this issue and that I should take it to a repair center to have them look the saw over. No... I contemplated the PALS idea again for the last couple days as well. After long deliberation and many, many hours spent trying to fix the issue, reading forums, posts, calling people, calling support, writing support, adding posts to ridgid forums and still having to get Ridgid to replace the fence and HOPE I get a flat one - I'm giving up and returning the saw for good as it's still in the 90 day return period. I've just ordered the G0771 as they are closing them out for the new model. $695.00 is much more than I needed to spend for what I do in the shop but for cabinet mounted trunnions alone is well worth the stress it'll save me over the next XX years (not to mention cast iron wings, etc.) Now that I'm typing this up - I'm assuming this saw gets great ratings because the people buying it are either just getting into woodworking (and don't know any better) or aren't doing precise cutting (furniture making) and don't need accurate cuts/they just don't care. I would not recommend this saw. What I would recommend is that you spend a couple hundred dollars more and get a much higher quality saw (even though they're all made in Taiwan or China...) - I just don't have the cash to shell out for a Powermatic, etc. and can't justify the costs for what I use the saw for. I make a lot of small items that need precision - this saw won't do it unless you're one of the lucky ones that doesn't need adjusting (or you make your own set of PALS/modify the trunnions so the stock PALS will fit the saw - (which may void your lifetime warranty). If you're reading this and have adjusted this saw without issues, I sincerely congratulate you. IF this saw was able to be adjusted, it really would be a pleasure to use. The motor is plenty strong, it's mobile and the fence is pretty accurate for the exception of not being flat. I'm just hopefully offering warning to people trying to get a "budget" saw. Unfortunately, I've learned that with tools, you DEFINITELY get what you pay for. "Budget" typically turns into "bad" when it comes to quality. Good luck!

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.
