I own a Ridgid R4512 table saw that I bought new from Home Depot a couple of years ago. It worked ok for the time I had it, but I spent a lot of time of setting up for cuts due to the documented alignment issues. At the beginning of May I finally took it to an authorized Ridgid repair center near me to get it looked at. They called me back yesterday saying they received and installed a new trunnion from Ridgid that they state fixed the problem of the blade shifting when raised or lowered. I will not have time to pick the saw up from the repair center until this weekend to test it. In the meantime I upgraded to a Grizzly G0690 for multiple reasons. I plan on picking up the Ridgid and trying to sell it.

I will be including 4 inserts I cut out of UHMW for the saw, the original miter gauge (which needs repair as the rubber/plastic knob on the tightening screw came off – not covered under Ridgid’s LSA), the saw, its stand, original fence, unused blade that came with it, owner’s manual, and of course the tools to adjust, assemble and change blades. The saw is in good condition and supposedly should be working better than when it was new with this updated trunnion. What would be a good price to ask for it?

The general rule of thumb is ~ 50% of the cost of new, with some wiggle room for initial quality, condition, location, extras, etc….keep in mind that most extras don’t add much value, and this is essentially an entry level stationary saw. I’d think somewhere in the range of ~ $300 would be a fair asking price.

knotscott is correct. 50% of new is pretty much the norm. Probably a ahrd pill to swallow with it only being a couple of years old. If you have room in your shop, I’d put it on a mobile base and make it a dedicated saw for crosscuts or dado’s or some other task.

Thanks for the info. It’s in the ballpark of what I was thinking. I’ll be selling it with whatever came with it new. I didn’t think the throat inserts would add much value but I already cut them for this saw. They don’t fit my grizzly so I might as well throw them in. I didn’t pay full price for the saw since Home Depot accepted a Harbor Freight 20% off coupon when I bought it. It was $499.99 when I bought it. Minus the 20% coupon I was out the door for under $425. I’ve gotten more than $200 out of it so I’ll probably let it go fairly cheap.

I agree with what Scott and Rob said. Start at $300-$325 and be prepared to take ~$250-$275 if someone talks you down to there.
