Ridgid MS-UV Miter Stand

Ridgid MS-UV Miter Stand

465 days ago by JerryS | 7 comments »

I can’t say enough good things about this stand but I’ll try and highlight all the things I like about it . First is the tubing size , it’s a whooping 1 3/4” tube , it screams heavy duty . It folds up super easy and stores nicely where ever you put it . The wheels are large and solid and roll over grass and stones with ease . The work extensions aren’t nothing fancy but will serve you well , they extend out 32” from the main part and have adjustable stops...

Good Saw Good Price

Good Saw Good Price

I just picked this saw up today to replace my old Delta Rockwell. Set up was not too bad on this saw, and dialing it in was pretty easy and straight forward. Within four hours I was making saw dust on this table saw. There are enough in depth reviews on this saw on here so I won’t bore anyone with this. I am at this point rating this saw pretty good and will update this rating as I put some hours on this saw. Time to make some more saw dust!

R4512 - 3 out of 3 at my HD had alignment problems

R4512 - 3 out of 3 at my HD had alignment problems

471 days ago by Craftsman70 | 31 comments »

This is not a full and extensive review, because I only had my R4512 for a couple of days. I’m doing this review for others who were in the situation I was. I was looking for a newer saw in the $500 price range and really wanted the R4512. I wanted to love the saw. I looked past the negative reviews believing the alignment/trunnion issues were only on earlier models and had been addressed. Opening the box, it all looked good. The wheels and lift system are the best. I liked...

Ridgid R4512 Table Saw --

Ridgid R4512 Table Saw --

543 days ago by fstellab | 38 comments »

Hi Folks,I have about 3 weeks experience with my new R4512, and about 6 months working with wood. I started with a Ridgid Miter Saw, I was blown away, it is a great miter saw. So Ridgid tools are my tool of choice. First I must mention that I originally got a Craftsman 10” Laser guided table for Christmas, I spent days trying to get the thing together. I tried cutting a boards, but I got a bad feeling, I was scared of the thing. I tuned as per the manual, but the first time I used it th...

Ridgid Miter Saw stand doesn't disappoint

Ridgid Miter Saw stand doesn't disappoint

This is my first review, so here we go…... So i was looking to upgrade my miter saw stand from my trusty Ryobi Stand. I have to admit, i was perfectly happy with that stand, and really didnt think I would be upgrading anytime soon. However, the lack of mobility with that stand finally got the better of me. I really like to have my saw very close when i’m casing out doors and windows and moving my Dewalt 10” slider and stand was getting to be too much of a hassle. I ...

Rigid 4510, a Beginner's Perspective

Rigid 4510, a Beginner's Perspective

I have been lucky enough to be collecting some tools to help me expand my project capabilities from rough carpentry to some finer work. I recently got a planer, and today added a table saw. Previously I had made very good, and I’d like to think creative, use of a straight cut guide for my circular saw and a compound miter saw. After having worn out my CMS, I was preparing to purchase another, and decided to instead give it a little TLC and buy a table saw. I read many reviews and ...

Good enough, but not perfect

Good enough, but not perfect

First, for what it’s worth, I have a Masters degree in functional design (woodworking) and studied under a master woodworker for 4 years. In our school shop we had large industrial 1960’s and 1970’s vintage Delta and Powermatic tools that had as much iron and steel in them as a Mack truck, so I know how a real saw is supposed to work, look and feel. Flash forward 15 years… For five years I have been using a crappy entry level ($100.00) table saw and it is simply god...

The Ridgid digital miter gauge

The Ridgid digital miter gauge

This will be my first review posted at this site and I felt I should share my experience with this tool because someone else left a glowing review and I just had to let people know that this same tool was not at all the quality tool that I thought it was going to be. Maybe I just got a bad one or something but the following is my account of the quality of this tool: I purchased this tool online at the HD website along with a Bosch router. The packaging was fine, no damage at all and I was ...

Ridgid BS1400 W/Riser Block

Ridgid BS1400 W/Riser Block

Out of the box, I would give it a 2 star rating, but after tweaking it a bit, I was able to raise it to 4 stars. I moved the motor to a position below the saw, made a new belt guard, replaced the blade guides and tires. I got it on clearance from HD; I think I paid around $175. I generally don’t expect 100% satisfaction from any tool I buy, but if there is something I can do to improve it, I will. The only time I will return a tool is when the fault is beyond my ability to fix.

Exceeded my expectations!

Exceeded my expectations!

I’m impressed with the Ridgid EB 4424 . For a lot of years I’ve been using my drill press with drum sanders to do what I bought this tool for. It’s hard to find drum sanders (that mount in a drill press) that are at least round, if not even concentric to their arbor shafts. For the last few years that more and more spindle sanders have been showing up in the tool catalogs, I’ve been reading the reviews. I was not impressed, although I was ready to try one just because ...
