Hello everyone!
I am currently using an older Craftsman table saw that has seen better days and I am planning to purchase a Ridgid TS3650 & JP0610 Joiner when my tax refund gets in. Much research has been done over the past few months looking at reviews, websites and such to make a decision on my new tools.

For the price range of $500.00 to $900.00 on the table saw and under $500.00 on the joiner these were rated in the top 10. Personal experience says a lot more to me than reviews so if anyone has an opinion from using either of these tools I would really appreciate hearing it.

Please let me know if you have used either of these tools guys and what your experience has been-good or bad.

You can email me directly at: rb-dallas@hotmail.com

Thanks in advance for your advise!
Reed

I’ve seen nothing but glowing reviews on that table saw. It is on my wish list.

I have the “folding” model of the 3650, the 2400 and I am very happy with it. You gotta love their lifetime warranty, also. I have their planer, 1/4 sheet sander, and their full-head air nailer, too. I have been very happy with their performance. I am sure you will be, too.

God Bless,
Hawg

I have both the tablesaw and the jointer, and they work great. Plenty of power, good prices, and good quality products. I think you will be happy with both.

I own a TS3650 and am mostly happy with it. See my earlier reply post in another topic in this forum for a few caveats.
