I have a basic miter saw you can get and it is a piece of junk. Got some use out of it but looking to upgrade. Would you buy a Ridgid R4121 used off of CL if you could get it under $215 with little use or would you hold out for something else? Don’t really need it at the moment. I have a very nice table saw so that is what I am using at the moment…but for longer items it is a pain.

I have had one for several years and have had no problems with it – I did buy a good frued blade for it to use when cutting “quality” projects. Id recommend that saw – if you really want one

I have the 12” slider. The only complaint I have is the size of the footprint and you HAVE to have a minimum 4 feet from the wall to use it. It needs a lot of room. If I were to get another slider, I will go with the Makita.
Just my two cents. Rand

Sorry – I was wrong – DUUUUUUUU – Mine is also a slider – yes it does takes a lot of room for its footprint – I do store mine on a home made box about 28 or so inches square about 8 inches tall that rides on casters. I store this sliding miter saw on top of this mobile box (storage inside of this box for accessories) (with the saw rotated on about 45 degrees) under the wing of my table saw. I have a table that i dedicate to the miter saw when a big project comes along – sorry for missing that you asked about a “non” slider – my bad

If you decide to get the Ridgid, think about the mobile stand. It is much handier as a set.

Have your say...
