Table Saw to OEM Relationship
Ridgid 4511 = Craftsman 22116 = Steel City 35925 = Orion Manufacturing
TS3560/60 = Ridgid TS2412 = Craftsman 113.XXXXX = Emerson Electric

This saw is basically the Craftsman 21833 / Dayton and is imported by Colvos Company as the Private Label which is a significantly different relationship than an OEM. Beside disguising the original manufacturer (or holding company that has a significant stake in that manufacturer) it also signifies that this particular model is a a transition model, tomorrow it could be gone to be replaced by a saw with compleatly incompatable parts.

Another issue is that the Craftman 351 code has yet to produce a strong and reliable example of manufacturing, the lathe, nail guns and other saws have been pretty bad flops. That Emerson (Ridgid) is getting in bed with Colvos or the unknown factory they’ve been using for the 21833 is interesting.
