I’m in the market for my first real table saw, and I’ve decided on the Ridgid R4512. Does anyone know how to currently get coupons or discounts on this table saw?

Depending on your local HD’s policies, you may be able to use a 10% off coupon from Lowes which can be found on ebay or in the USPS movers packs. Call the store and ask.

And the ones with the alignment problems go for really cheap!

I’m not sure the alignment issues have been fixed. Some say it has. Here’s a LJ post… http://lumberjocks.com/topics/58529

Since it’s your first real table saw, IMO a better approach might be to ask what the best saw for your needs and budget are.

Home Depot changed their coupon policy after word started spreading that certain managers were allowing the use of a Harbor Freight 20% off coupon. They aren’t even matching lowes 10% off ‘movers coupon’ anymore, so a discount isn’t likely.

Regarding the alignment issues. I’ve heard that the “II” trunnions fix the problem, but haven’t seen it in person. My saw has a “I” casting but I’ve maintained perfect alignment for almost 3 years without issue. The only thing is that you have to raise the blade slightly after lowering it to realign the blade. It’s not a big deal at all and at the price point it’s still the best saw for the money in my opinion.

Here’s a link showing mine in perfect alignment.

Knotscott, I’m by no means an expert nor will I turn down good advice, but I’m fairly experienced in framing and trim carpentry, and I’ve built several “nicer” pieces of furniture. I’ve always had access to cabinet shops after working in residential construction through high school and most of college. I still have access to a production cabinet shop with 5hp powermatics, shapers, etc. I’ve owned plastic bodied contractor saws.

This is my first personal saw that intend to customize and improve through the addition of out feed tables, a router extension, etc. $500ish is really my budget for the saw. Belt drive is a requirement for noise. Plus, I have a good friend that is a dang good craftsman, and this saw is the center of his small workshop.

I used a Direct Tools 40% off coupon a couple of years ago, but had to go to several Home Depos before I found one that would take the coupon. I have the type II trunnions and the alignment is very good. The cast iron router table extension and the Incra fence system were both more expensive than the saw

I would rephrase that that the ones with alignment issues appear on cragslist much more often than in the store. Same as with cars. The seller has a reason to sell and it is not always a honest reason.

I bought Lowe’s delta version. I used the credit card and my military I’d. Another avenue is stop by the post office and grab a movers pack. There are always 10%off coupons for both big orange and big blue.

Ask if they will give you a discount for applying for their credit card.

I’m looking at the same saw. I get 10% being a veteran. But I have heard some honor HF coupons. I’ll give that a shot.

My question is… I have read a bunch about the alignment issues with this saw. Most of it I have seen is from several years ago.

The features vs price of this saw makes it seem pretty good. But not if it is not accurate. Anyone have experience with the newer ones? And is there a different saw in a similar price range that would be a better option?

I’d love to buy a Saw Stop or some other cabinet saw but the wife is letting me take over the garage and buy some equipment I probably shouldn’t push my luck with a $2500 saw at this point

Thanks in advance

I’d say the Delta 36-725 sold by Lowes is the direct competitor to the HD sold Ridgid R4512. Is the Delta better than the Ridgid? May be, may be not. It’s a matter of opinion.

I was kind of looking at that one too. It is a bit more… I’m going to have to research it a bit more. I thought it was missing some of the features of the ridig…but I didn’t look all that long I guess. I’ll compare both a little better
