I don’t know what took more time, digging out my basement, or assembling the Ridgid R4511. No, honestly, it wasn’t too bad. Just time consuming, and as stated numerous times, the instructions leave a LOT to be desired. I’m very happy with the ‘fit & finish’ of the saw. The tool has an unspeakable amount of engineering for the price I paid. Very nice saw. Next purchase will be a Forrest blade and a cyclone dust collector. I’m going with the ‘Dust Deputy’ by Oneida for this round. Should I relocate my shop to a larger location, I’ll obviously kick up the dust collection to the next level, but for now, I like entry price ($99) & portability.

It’s a great saw! and now that it’s put together I can get a better feel for your basement size – it’s quite BIG… real nice and so much potential!

Now for some zero clearance plates, and fence faces! (stop by if you want a phenolic throat plate)
