Just assembled my Ridgid 4512 table saw (heavy) and Bull Dog Pro Max cast iron router table. Both well made pieces of equipment.
When assemblying table saw consider these ideas. They worked for me:
Place table saw upside down on an 8’ piece of 2×8 with a smaller length beside it for stability.
Don’t add top extensions until saw is upright (contrary to instructions)
Make sure the side panel with “Ridgid” and 4 holes on it will be on the left side when saw is upright (the holes are to mount the fence storage brackets).
Don’t tighten the caster bolts too tight as they need to move up and down (instructions just say to tighten)
When setting up right, use the 8’ 2×8 to lever it up, then one person can do it (I did)
Mount the Bull Dog Pro Max router table on the right hand side, then it fill the gap between the rails and replaces the right table extension. Table extension could be mounted outboard of the router top.
May need to enlarge the bolt holes in the router top for the hex head bolts in front rail. Rear rail will need holes drilled through router top if you want to bolt rear rail to it. Pro Max doesn’t require this, but to me it will make the rails more stable, so I did that.
Assembly of both was quite easy and everything fit well. One of the better engineered pieces of equipment I have. This saw is much better than the Delta ShopMaster TS300 I am getting rid of (though cheaper saw and think now may be discontinued).
Mainly went to the Ridgid 4512 because it had a 27” deep table that the Pro Max fit. Saves a lot of space and set up when the router can be left in place on the table extension.
Re: the Ridgid 4512 I ended up with 6 – 1 1/4” #8 Philips headed screws silver coloured which I still do not know where they go. Can’t find them anywhere in the instructions. Any one know?
