A great portable saw

A great portable saw

01-15-2008 03:09 AM by Zuki | 5 comments »

I purchased the TS2400LS in late December 2006. I needed a powerful and feature laden portable table saw for my workshop. I reviewed other portable saws including: Bosch 4000-09 Dewalt 774 I did not review the Makita 2704X1 it was not available at that time. I decided on the Ridgid for several reasons:- the non-pneumatic tires make for a more stable base- T- tracks in the table top- beveled top edge allowing the miter to slide easily- the slots in the fence allows jigs to be easil...

Great for its purpose

Great for its purpose

For anyone that doesnt have a dedicated shop space this saw is great. I have to set up and tear down my shop every weekend and this is the perfect table saw for me. Pros:Cuts everything I have thrown at it so far. Mostly Poplar, Maple, and Ply.Saw came perfectly set up out of the box Fence is solid and mitre gauge works wellT-slots are nice as these parts can be upgraded if necessaryEasy to clean – Just stand it up and vac bottomVery easy to set up and tear down Drawbacks:No rivin...

NEW VACUUM

NEW VACUUM

08-21-2008 07:09 PM by John Gray | 5 comments »

I purchased this vacuum about a month ago and it has been used ALOT. If has become a favorite tool, it’s so handy to use with the long hose. I also purchased the Ridgid Hepa filter – Model VF6000 which is washable. Filters 99.97% of particles as small as .3 mirons. Now the shop is much cleaner because the 22’ hose lets me go directly to the tool instead of having to move the big and cumbersome Craftsman around the shop, the Craftsman is now dedicated to the table saw unt...

Dadoing

Dadoing

07-17-2011 02:49 AM by navtalk | 5 comments »

Please don’t be too concerned with my 3 STAR evaluation, I had to put something there and haven’t had the opportunity to use the saw. I am getting ready to start my first project, by the time I am through, I will be ready to give it a better/worse rating. I just purchased this R4510 Ridgid. I like it so far but it does have some irritating points. Trying to find a zero clearance insert for the standard blade and a dado blade is a lesson in futility. I finally had to make my own...

Improved switch design, great dust collection

Improved switch design, great dust collection

02-24-2012 01:24 AM by nwbusa | 5 comments »

Update: I’ve owned this sander now for over a year, and it has gotten a lot of use. It’s been a great tool with no problems, so I’ll leave the five stars in place. The original review follows: I haven’t had this sander long yet, so my 5 star rating is based ondesign and recent performance. After I have used it for a longerperiod of time, I’ll come back and update my rating if warranted. I really want to comment on two aspects of the sander design. First,t...

Ridgid 12 in Sliding Compound Miter Saw

Ridgid 12 in Sliding Compound Miter Saw

06-28-2010 04:51 AM by Randy L. | 4 comments »

I recently purchased a Ridgid MS 1290LZ 12 in Sliding Compound Miter saw. I was looking for a saw to take the place of both a radial arm saw and a miter saw, so I decided on a 12 in slider. I did not have room (or money!) for both types of saws, so i decided that this would be a good way to get some of the benefits of both. I have had this saw for about two weeks now and am just about done trimming out my entire house with it. So far I am very happy with it and feel as if it was money wel...

Good compressor for nailing work

Good compressor for nailing work

11-24-2008 11:02 PM by ferstler | 4 comments »

I have had this oil-free compressor for several years and have used it in conjunction with my Ridgid and Campbell-Hausfeld framing nailers to add timbering to my attic trusses, build a fancy coffered ceiling in my garage, and add additional nails to the siding on my house. I have also used it to power finishing and brad nailers for assorted projects. The thing works just fine. The calibration is perfect and I appreciate not having to worry about oil in the compressor section. It weighs 70 ...

Very good saw for a variety of uses

Very good saw for a variety of uses

05-15-2009 01:54 PM by jonah | 4 comments »

My wife and I bought a house two years ago, and planned to redo the kitchen pretty extensively. I grew up doing construction projects with my step-father and am able to do framing, drywall, finish work, electrical, and very basic plumbing on my own. We ended up tearing it down to the studs and starting from scratch, and did 99% of the project ourselves. I realized before we started that I was going to need more power tools. I had a drill, jigsaw, circular saw, and hand tools, but had no sp...

Just what I needed.

Just what I needed.

A couple years back, I bought two craftsman routers off CL. One came with a fixed base and the other came with a fixed and plunge base. In spite of the bad “press” crfatsman often receives, these tools have treated me well.However, there is one legit shortcoming that I have found. The router accessory world basically revolves around Porter Cable, and Craftsman is no where to be found. This became especially apparent after I bought a HF dovetail jig and needed a baseplate bushing s...

Good Value, Serves its Purpose

Good Value, Serves its Purpose

11-09-2011 03:50 AM by Kelen | 4 comments »

I’ve probably waited much longer than I should have to purchase a featherboard setup for my table saw. Reading more into the magnetic featherboards and some of their reviews, I knew this would be the most versatile option instead of those that function using the miter track. I stumbled upon the Ridgid one online and read many positive reviews about it. The price point was also attractive relative to other brands that were selling for $50+ for what seemed to be the same basic concept....
