I thought the Ridgid R4511 would be a great find if any Home Depot had it left for $350. So, I called around and was unable to find one. Until a buddy of mine told me he saw a nice table saw for real cheap at Home Depot about 20 miles from my house (I called 4 stores closer and was unable to find one so I gave up).I called them up and they happen to have 2 available. I got it from Home Depot for $299. I couldn’t turn it down at that price. I just put it together and cut one piece of pine with it. Works like a dream. I will do a review once I get a chance to do some work with it and see how it does. I guess my birthday was a little early this year!

Beautiful little girl, you are a lucky man. All thats left to do is teach her how to make wood chips fly. Oh BTW that shop is way to clean….is there even a speck of saw dust in there?

Ha, I just cleaned up real good before I put the saw together. I have a nice gas blower that the wife makes me use to make it look like a garage again.
