Blackspring, bought my R4512 few months ago and checked the same, mine happened to be spot on so I can’t relate to the problem. My only issue with this saw is the stock zero clearance insert plate. I’ve tried a few ground down washers to get it level to the cast iron, it’s close but not perfect.

I ended up building a 1/4” zero clearance plate for m Freud dado stack and it actuall works better. I need to make one dedicated for the single blade.

The recommendations so far on here are great though, will keep this favorited for the future. This is one great saw for the price.

You might even check out and Alan Little’s t-clamp fence system, it’s a great upgrade to our Ridgids. Haven’t gotten around to it myself yet, but plan to.
