Here’s a great price on a pretty good saw. It’s the Rigid 12” sliding compound saw. Once I saw this ad:

I looked at this review:

I keep staring at the ad wanting to pull the trigger, but it’s just not in the cards right now. I know I’ll regret this later.

Maybe someone here can enjoy?

That’s a great saw for a shop . I have one that I bought when HD opened in my area at $299 . The only thing negative about it is that it’s big and heaver than most Sliders. So I use a Bosch for my on site work still heavy but not as heavy.

The only thing I didn’t like about the Ridgid chop saw was the added requirement to pull the extra trigger on the handle… I found that it was located too far to the left of the handle and I could not get a comfortable grip on it to push it against the handle and then pull the trigger…
I went with the DeWALT sliding compound instead and have not looked back…
