I have had my R4512 for about 18 months and have not really used it much because all the fun life stuff. When I first got it I didn’t notice much blade shift, but I obviously wasn’t paying attention. I have finally measured my shift and it’s about 0.018” before tightening it. Once tightened it goes to about 0.020-0.024”, and once you take tension off it drops back to zero +/-0.002”. I have contacted Ridgid and they did say it needs replaced, but I am worried they will claim nothing is wrong once they have it. I hav sent back asking if they can send me the trunnion so I can replace it, since this will be cheaper for them. I even said I would understand that I would be expected to pay if I had to send it in if I could not put it back together. I am just waiting a reply.

Sadly, I should have been paying more attention when I first bought it, but my son was born 3 days later and then life just happened. Thanks for any help and I appreciate ahead of time.
