small plug on right side of Rigid 15 amp 7 1/4 worm drive

does this saw use/need oil? if so, what kind is best and if not, what's the plug on the right side for? I seem to no longer have my owners manuel
Asked by: Anonymous
Worm drives DO need lubrication. After flushing or discharging the original oil from your unit (after the first 10 hours of use) use the prescribed amount of oil as described in the Ridgid Operator's Manual pages 14-15. Since the recommended Mobil SHC636 is no longer available in the market, a Ridgid Technician recommended to use an equivalent oil. I used "3-in-1" oil, a multi-purpose oil available at Home Depot. The plug you see on the right side is your saw's port #access# to the oil chamber. Refer to the manual page 19 to confirm. Somewhere in the Home Depot site, you'll find a link to download the Ridgid Operator's Manual. This is a better size manual #8x11# as compared to the "booklet size" manual that comes with the saw, which you need a magnifying glass to read. Cheers!

Can anyone tell me where this saw is made? I assume China since all of the other manufacturers have moved there.

Can I cut a hairline crack on concrete if I use a diamond blade, to fill in hair line cracks on my driveway ?.PS does it support a 4" blade?

Can"t fine anything to support this on MANUAL
Asked by: MOOSE
Yes, I use a diamond blade in mine quite often, but it is a 7-1/4 inch blade. This saw has a diamond-shaped arbor and I have never seen a 4 inch blade with anything but a round arbor. I question, though, if that small of a saw blade is up to the task. I know the saw will certainly handle the job.

15 Amp 7-1/4 in. Worm Drive Circular Saw is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this saw. I actually argued with a friend about the uselessness of a worm drive saw for ... I love this saw. I actually argued with a friend about the uselessness of a worm drive saw for framing because all I'd ever used was a normal circular saw. This thing has tons of power, it actually jumps when you pull the trigger. Cutting through 2x framing material is effortless and leaves a cleaner cut than a traditional circular saw. Is it necessary? No. Is it worth the money? Totally. Likes: - Tons of power, will cut anything you need easily - Easy to adjust for mitered cuts and different depths like a traditional circular saw; once they are made they are solid and won't move - Blade changes are easy but caution! If you use the normal 7 1/4" blades you will probably have to have the label facing in. Just pay attention to tooth direction and follow the instructions in your owner's manual. - When you're making a cut as you might when trimming the end of your rafters flush and will only use one hand this saw just seems to be designed for an easy one hand operation. - Joist hanger allows your to hang the saw securely even when you're standing on a roof. The weight balance will pull it in tight against a rafter so it won't slide down even with the slope. Dislikes: - Very heavy; not fun to tote around all day when you compare it with a normal circular saw but this is nullified by the ease with which you make cuts

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good saw The R32103 handles and operates exactly the way an inline saw is supposed to. The motor is smooth and powerful, the bevel gauge is easy to read and adjust, and the depth mechanism operates very smoothly. I particularly liked that the guard never snagged, not even when I was shaving a sliver-sized piece off the end of a jack rafter. I also liked the lit plug, which glows when there is power to the saw. It’s a small detail, but we get a lot of rain in winter, so the power trips a lot on our job sites and the plug always let us know instantly if the power was still on. All in all, I liked everything about this tool except the base plate. The plates on most other saws are thick and heavily ribbed; this one is thinner and only lightly contoured, making it more likely to bend in a fall. In fact, we’ve used this saw’s predecessor and the plate did bend once or twice. And it wasn’t a fluke: For this review we dropped all of our in-line (worm drive and hypoid gear) saws five times from a 3-metre height and the Ridgid’s base plate is the only one that bent. This saw places third in our collection. Skilsaw is first, Makita is second, and this saw is third. Hope this helps in some way, thanks for your time, and good luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gear Oil Change This is the best saw I've ever used, cuts through lumber with ease. I like all the features this saw has. The only problem is when its time to change the gear oil Ridgid says to use only Mobil SHC 636 synthetic gear oil. Problem is you can't buy Mobil SHC 636 oil in anything less than a 5-gallon bucket and it is very expensive. This is a problem Ridgid should have thought of. Not a good idea to use 80w-90 automotive gear oil because it's viscosity is not good enough. But the good news is you can buy Mobil SHC 634 in a quart bottle, 634 is the closest you can get to 636 an costs much less. As for the saw it's self,I would recomemd it to anyone wanting a saw with good capabilty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Saw Needed to replace a Dewalt Saw that just wore out after about only a few months of heavy use. I work at construction and saw a friend using Rigid and had been using his saw for about three years. I like the balance in my hand which makes it feel lighter than 15 pounds. I like the bevel which goes over 50 degrees. The measured markings across the top and left of the saw plate has come in handy. Overall, I am impressed with the METAL construction which is a good thing since most tools are increasingly plastic even with tools professionals use. Yes, I would recommend (even with a higher price because it is Worm Drive) for anyone who is somewhat a woodworker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridgid for the win. As a carpenter I've had the pleasure of using many different worm-gear/hypoid style circ saws. Without exception they all perform very similarly when new. I've owned and used a makita hypoid, a skil mag77 and now a ridgid r3210. it is the best of the lot for the following reasons: 1, it is lighter, at about 15lbs, it DOES make a difference. 2, Accuracy the base is SPOT on, out of the box and after a few lumps and bumps is still bang on. my mag 77 is also good like this, my makita hypoid not so much (why it was replaced) 3, little features, like the rafterhook, I had to install an aftermarket on my mag77 and makita. 4, The lighted cord end, 1, I know when the power goes out, also it makes it easier to identify in lower light conditions. 5, the cord wrap another inovative ridgid idea, I love it on my angle grinder, and I love it on my circ saw. SAFTEY NOTICE wrap the thing up before you use the saw. 6, the length of the cord. It is like they took all the things that were perfect about the mag 77, fixed a few that werent, added the extra features we all wanted, and boom, its a new classic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good saw I bought 2 of the worm drives did my research and they dont use cheap plastic gears like many now and they are a heavy duty product.........2 draw back no guide i would pay the extra 5 bucks for it if it was in the box HELLO RIDGID think a little.....second the cord ends seem to wear out and get loose i have had to replace both cords on my saws i ended up putting 25 foot long on there since i had to replace them anyways......but other then that the saw worked great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rigid R3210 Worm Drive Circilar Saw Spoke to Larry, A tech with Rigid Tools, he said that Rigid never stocked the Mobil SHC 636 oil and they recommed using the Skill Worm Gear Oil stocked at Homedepot. He said this will take the heat of the saw and would not void the warranty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ridgid worm drive saw. Ive been cutting concrete floor with this saw the last two days. Has plenty of power, feels well balanced, its a little on the heavy side. But its a heavy duty saw. It doesn't want to twist too bad on start up. Handles are located nicely and make the user feel well in control and are comfortable Overall, this saw is a winner.
