Blade wobble?

Ive read in some of the reviews about the blade wobble. Im wondering if i buy this saw and get the lifetime and it happens to have a wobble will it be repaired for free also. I love the rigid tools but i just dont want to get a bad tool and be stuck
Asked by: dragonsflame
I bought the saw because I needed the extra capacity of the 70 degree miter but it did wobble so now I'm going to take it back and get a new one. I'm doing trim work right now and the wobbling does affect the cuts so I can't get a clean line. You shouldn't be worried about the saw wobbling and then being stuck with it because the wobble is easy to see with the L.E.D. light and if you look at the cuts at extreme angles, you can see if the cut is clean and sharp or ribbed and not straight. If the saw is wobbling, then just take it back within 90 days with your receipt and get a full refund or exchange for another one which is what I'm going to do. Don't even have to worry about warranties or LSA's. HD will take it back if it's a defective machine. Just keep your paper receipt or save the emailed one.

Miter Blade - I know that it comes with one, but what type of blade it is? For example All-Purpose (32 tooth) or Finish (80-tooth) blade? Should I buy another blade? Project: Making shelves/furniture. THX
Asked by: 351C
Don't waste your money on an 80 tooth blade. If you've ever used an 80 on hard wood too know that a 60 is much more efficient

Is this a good stand or not? I tried reading the reviews and the questions but they are mostly for the saw.
Asked by: goofy
Yes this is a good stand. Ridgid has change it alittle which i think is better and stronger. The wheels are bigger which helps going up and down stairs.

15 Amp 12 in. Corded Dual Bevel Sliding Miter Saw with 70 Degree Miter Capacity is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 351.

After running through about 20 pieces of flooring the blade started to shake when you started to make contact with your material. After looking at the reviews on the Ridgid site I saw where they are were having issues with the arbor. Sure enough, I was having the same issue. You would think they would fix the issue and remove all of the affected units from the shelves. Instead they knowingly keep bad product out there selling to unsuspecting customers. Bad decision Ridgid, you are now on my banned manufacturer list. After owning many Ridgid products for years the company simply cannot be trusted anymore.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Amazing potential, but one critical flaw I really wanted to love this saw. In fact, I've been trying to justify keeping it, despite what others have described: the blade wobble (or shutter, really). I'm amazed that this product made it through engineering, let alone quality assurance, with such a pronounced flaw--that is clearly a design defect since it is present in almost every saw that ships. I hope that Ridgid fixes this issue--this would be a phenomenal saw, otherwise. With a 70* cutting angle in both directions, this saw would be a top contender. As it is, though, it is passable for cutting lumber, but unusable for finish work. I'm still a fan of Ridgid products, but am disappointed by this one.

Great saw for a closet contractor or just to cut larger dimensional lumber but not a finish saw or precision saw. Has 16+ inches of crosscut capacity great for shelving and it is reasonability accurate with a large table. I would use it for rough framing also where we have lots of 4x12 headers to cut and even beams. It would also make a good paint grade crown molding saw but stain grade. For finish work on stain grade material I would look further. If you need good miter saw for anything but fine carpentry this saw can't be beat for the price.

HUGE step up in Ridgid's miter saw game, The fit and finish on this thing is impeccable, up there with some of the best saws on the market. It came out of the box completely dead square and plum. The only qualm I have in the fit and finish department is that the extension fences are not square to the table. It is a huge improvement over past saws in: dust collection, fit and finish, versatility and features. the 70 degree bevel feature is very useful, although I have my concerns about safety with the blade swung that far over. But the two unsung feature of this saw are the shadow line (way more useful than a laser) and what seems like the biggest cross cut capacity on the market. I am a huge fan of this saw,

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Blade wobble reviews are true!! I read several reviews and the only negatives all involved blade wobble. Well, I do a lot of woodwork and really loved the idea of 70 degree angles because I cut 60 often. This saw has blade wobble- there is no denying it. 349.99 for a saw that won't do finish work- the only reason I am giving it two stars is because all the other features are awesome. Unfortunately, the most basic feature (a straight cut), isn't here. Not pleased

There IS a bit of blade wobble. People have differing opinions on this. Some say its only until the blade gets to full speed, others indicated its like the blade is going to fall off. They are both wrong. I compared it to a couple other miter saws at my disposal. It's is in line with most other models. If you need a super precise cut all the time, then you will need to spend your money. However, for woodworking, trim, and anything else around the house, it works spectacularly. The extended miter angles are great too. I do wish it came with a better blade though. The one it arrived with is garbage. Thrown on a Diablo and you will forget any questions you have about this saw.

It came all assembled, mostly, and the minor assembly required was very simple. The saw was only about 1 degree out of square , when checked, but is a very simple process to correct. The instructions are vague about how to operate the "miter detent bypass" button. It was not clear that you press hard to click once to engage the "stop" on the miter. The saw comes with the bypass disengaged so it seems like there is no way to get it to stop at the preset miter settings (22.5, 30, 45, etc). I stumbled onto pressing harder to actually click and engage the detent function. Unfortunately while reading on how to make adjustments to get the detent to engage I tried to turn the miter detent screw and broke the "slot" on the end of the screw. Had I known how to engage the detent stop I would have realized it was already set up correctly and nothing needed to be done. So it was my fault for breaking the screw head - if I ever need to make an adjustment it should not be too hard to take the screw out and cut a new slot in the end with a hacksaw or metal cutting blade. Overall the saw is awesome - very powerful and an ease to use. I am very glad with the purchase. The saw has more features and greater range of angles than competitors saws at a higher price. I really like the LED light. It not only lights the cutting area, but casts a shadow of the blade as a guide for cutting - much better than a light that is aimed and may not be accurate. I expect to get a lot of use out of this saw cutting trim on the next house I build for myself after finishing the trim on the current house we just moved into.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad vibrations I just want to start off saying I loved every feature about the saw, The work light, the 70° chop, the fact that it came with the crown stops, the built on screwdriver/Allen wrench to change a blade, but the one thing that it truly needs to do, it doesn't; which is cut a nice clean Miter. Once the blade gets up to speed there is some sort of bad vibration that causes the entire head to jump around making the blade unstable. The vibration seems to come from the motor or the internal gears. I returned it without much trouble thanks to the awesome Home Depot service. I did ask the Home Depot service people if they could put another one together to see if it would do the same vibration and they would not oblige. Unfortunately they lost my sale because of that. I ended up ordering the Dewalt one I know will be good.
