Where can I purchase a rip guide for this 61/2 " Ridgid Fuego Compact Framing Saw?
Asked by: Texasfatfish
Yes I was very disappointed to purchase this saw instead of the Skil brand and didn't find the rip guide or the screw that holds the rip guide included in the box. Guess that's why we distrust corporate America so much.

What does this saw weigh?
Asked by: Will
Manuel says 8 lbs. On my digital scale, it says 9lbs, 2oz including the cord. Honestly, it feels less than that when holding it.

Fuego 12 Amp 6-1/2 in. Magnesium Compact Framing Circular Saw is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 66.

I wanted a smaller saw ( 6 1/2'' ) for doing some work around the house, so I did some research online and kept coming back to the Fuego. Every thing I've read about the Fuego measures up once you use it. Because of the hex grip and its light weight, It's very comfortable to use at any angle. I really haven't found anything negative to say about this little powerhouse of a saw. Like all the Rigid tools I've used, they work very well and back it up with a warranty. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, but not square I have had this saw for a few years now and have been generally pretty happy with it. It’s got a decent amount of power while still being light and compact. But seriously, this thing is not square. I have used three of these now and each of them out of the box cuts at around a two degree bevel. So just set it with your square and lock it in place, since the posaitive stop is not right. Other than that the thing works great for demo and small framing jobs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Woulda coulda Let me start by saying that this would've been a great saw. It cuts beautifully. But Ridgid went cheap on the hardware. The thumblock mechanism went soft - I couldn't lock the depth at all; it kept slipping to full depth. I have years of experience and I'm not going to cut 3/4" plywood at full depth, and it wouldn't even lock there. I tried to tighten and adjust, only to find out the square ended bolt is simply pressed into the blade guard and the springed-plastic thumblock lever is easily stripped. Not able to fix it. Looks nice on the shelf, useless on the job. Sorry, I had a Ridgid mitre saw that I loved, but the quality (and the lifetime warranty) are gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid circular saw Overall, great product. It is a lightweight, 6 1/2" circular saw. It is what it is. The blade is on the right (for better or worse). I am right handed and would prefer blade left, but I can live with decision. Here is why. I researched tons of circular saws as I am laying hardwood floors and I need to cut planks repetitively. I borrowed a cordless Dewalt 20V 6 1/2" inch and it has been convenient, except for batteries. The blade for the Dewalt is positioned on the left, which I like. The saw is lightweight. I thought I wanted a corded saw with a left blade, but I only found two made, one by Bosch and one by Milwaukee. Both models are 10+ lbs. For my hardwood floor cuts, I want a light saw, as I am cutting free-hand using a speed square. This Rigid saw's larger brother received good reviews on websites, so I trusted this saw would be good as well. I feel that it is. The saw is light enough that I feel comfortable with it in my left hand so I can see my cut line while holding a speed square on the plank in my right. I can adjust the depth of the cut, which will allow me to hold the speed square to the plank with my left hand, and cut while holding the saw in my right. I decided on this saw as opposed to cheaper alternatives, like the Ryobi 7 1/4" saws that are a little lighter (7-7.9 lbs), because the composition of the saw appears to be sturdier, not plastic. I decided against cordless because a $100 saw easily turns into $200+ when you get two batteries and a battery charger. I am happy with it overall.
