I was finally ready to buy a Ridgid R4511, went to the local store to look one more time at the floor model. A representative from the home office or somewhere came by, cut the cord off the saw and had it thrown in the dumpster two days before I got there. What a waste, even if it were a defective piece there certainly were plenty of parts that could have been useful.
I did go ahead and buy the granite top saw. I also got the ridgid 12” compound miter saw, the 13” planer, and the floor model 6.125 joiner . The planer was marked down to $321. I then got a 10% discount with my Lowe’s coupon. The total for the entire shop was $1398.96 plus tax. All with a lifetime warranty!!! For less than I paid for my Jet cabinet saw when I was doing furniture for a living. The store ordered new knives for the joiner at no charge. I am in the process of setting up everything now.
The only disapointment is that the table saw didn’t come with a dado throat plate. I need to make or find one as well as a zero clearance plate.
Anyone know where I can find accessories for this saw.
