I wanna purchase the Rigid 12” Miter saw, but I need to know the actual width of the saw. I already built a miter saw station (version of Jay’s Miter Saw Station) So I’m limited to a saw that will fit my station. They dont have a display @ my local home Depot and unfortunately the stats they listed on their website are incorrect.

I believe they came out with a new model of this saw a month or 2. So idk if the older one and latest release are same dimensions or not. If someone could measure and let me know would be appreciate it.

I have a Ridgid 12 inch compound miter saw. I don’t think that’s what you are asking about, but if it is I’ll measure it. Mine is 5 or 6 years old. Great saw. I put a fine tooth high dollar saw blade on it and adjusted it carefully and it makes great cuts at correct angles.

I had the non-slider first and decided that the limited cut wasn’t good enough, so I sold it and got the slider. It cuts to about 14 inches.

I’m sorry I guess I never specified. I’m referring to the 12” Rigid Sliding Compound Miter Saw.

I actually just went to Home Depot and they let me open the box to measure. It was Approx 31 inches wide, which is to wide for my miter saw station (I need 28in or less)

Like I said the newest model that just came out is bigger (wider) then the previous

How wide was ur Rigid 12in Sliding Compound Miter, that you purchased 5 or 6 years ago?

P.S. not sure why anyone would purchase the none sliding vs sliding. Its only $50 more. Way worth it to me.

My 12 inch Ridgid compound slider has a footprint of 23 by 23 inches. The upper parts of the saw, like the fences and the front of the saw table, and of course the sliding parts themselves, are deeper and wider than the base.

The blade is a CMT with fine teeth and it cuts glass smooth.

Have you looked at the DeWalt 12” slider? If I remember correctly from when I was shopping, the DeWalt isn’t as wide as the Ridgid slider.
