I’m not a professional woodworker nor I have expensive tools to make micro adjustments on my tools. I’ve looked in many places online about adjustments to the Ridgid R4510 saw and have found maybe one or two things but not quite what I want.
What I want to see is if anyone here owns this same saw and how you adjusted the fence to be perfectly square and produce perfect cuts. I’ve spent hours trying to get the fence perfectly square but I can see the back is maybe less than 1/16” off than the front. Also the riving knife seems to be straight on a flat surface but it doesn’t seem that way when it’s installed on the blade. Also, the miter gauge is wobbly and does not produce good cuts and the user manual does not help at all with adjustments, I know, I’ve tried.
I’m interested also how to improve the dust collection in this saw because it just doesn’t work well even with the dust deputy attached to it. Most of the dust goes to the bottom of the saw and makes a mess all over the floor.
Please share how you made adjustments to the fence, miter gauge, and improved the dust collection. I want to make this saw as close to perfection as possible and I repeat “as possible” even though it’s not 100% possible.
This saw was not cheap and I’m gonna use it util it runs no more or I hit the lottery :D. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
