About 6 Months ago I bought the 10” Ridgid R4516 for $369CDN at Home Depot. Picture is at initial set up. I have a Small Shop in my Basement and want to keep it that way.

As others have said it is noisier than a Saw with an Induction Motor. To eliminate some of the Vibration I mounted it on the Old Metal Leg Stand. The 3/4” Fir Ply is seperated from the Stand by 1/2” Thick x 2” Dia. Neoprene Washers. The saw base also has Extra 1/2” Rubber Pads where the Saw Feet meet the Fir Ply.

I’ve used it a Lot since the Pics where taken and am VERY Happy with it. Minimal Adjustment required and is easy to do. Has a Riving Knife, Splitter, Guard, Anti Kickback Pawls etc. Fence is accurate and when Table is extended I can Rip a Full 4 Foot Wide Sheet at 2 Feet. Dado Blade works just fine. Guess that’s it.
