I bought this saw. It DOES NOT come with a stand, thus the NS after the model number. I too was confused as it listed it in the manual. Great price, I am building my own stand and it saves you almost $100.
NO! I can't believe how many negative reviews this issue created. This saw is just that a *portable* saw in a box. Look at the price and compare it to *ANY* free standing table saw. The online page *suggests* the 'deluxe' or 'precision' table saw stand and displays a package deal for a whole lot more money. And still some people still complain about false advertising, and gave the saw a bad rating because they didn't read.
I bought this saw 2 years ago. I've been really frustrated trying to find the Ridgid Shop Vac attachment that will attach to the back of the Ridgid Table Saw exhaust. You think they'd make one, but they don't. I also have a Ridgid miter saw and the exhaust is a different size than the table saw and the Shop-Vac does not fit that either (nor do the attachments). I had to buy a rubber plumbing fitting to go inside the saw exhaust and around the vacuum hose. Problem is, it slips out all the time. So, then I had to drill 2 small holes through the exhaust and the rubber fitting and secure it with wire (not that I wanted to drill through my nice table saw!) Can someone post a link to the attachment that goes from the saw exhaust to the shop vac (and one for the miter saw too!!)
Yes. It's integral and how the blade guard & anti-kickback pawls attach.
Hi Macaroni, We appreciate your interest in the RIDGID 15 Amp 10 in. Table Saw R4520. Dadoes are never meant to cut all the way through a piece of wood. They typically only cut ¾ to 1 inch depth. If you would like to discuss this question further, please reach out to RIDGID Customer Support directly at 1-866-539-1710, and follow the prompts for Technical Support. Thanks for asking! - Eve
JJ, if you had taken all of about 2 minutes to look, you would have seen the model number CTYankee is referring to is AC9946. CTYankee, did you end up buying this one and assuming you have it since you were asking, did it attach?
This saw *IS* the R4518T -- the difference is the label on the box. The tool is inventoried as the R4519NS where the NS means 'no-stand'.
I used my old job site pro stand as only the saw stopped working
I'd give it an 8 or a 9. It holds its settings, and gives nice, square cuts. However, I can't vouch for the accuracy of the markings on the fence scale, since I typically measure the distance from the blade to the fence with a tape measure. :)
Both. By setting the rip fence on "13" you get a second ruler to directly set the fence distance. But you can slide the fence out to '14' and get a 27 inch rip.
