I’ve been using a Bosch jobsite tablesaw for a while and I’m looking to upgrade. I’ve been keeping an eye on Craigslist, and while there don’t tend to be too many good deals in my area, all of the sudden I’ve come across 2 today. The first is a new Ridgid R4512, still in the box, asking $480. The second is a used Ridgid TS2424 asking $350. Would appreciate your thoughts on one of these versus the other. The difference in prices isn’t much of a concern for me, how would compare the 2 saws?

Thanks!

Personally I’m not a big fan of the newer RIDGID table saws. Quality just isn’t there like it was on the earlier Emerson made saws. That being said, that TS2424 is way overpriced IMO. If you could get the seller down to $225-$250 then that’s the one I’d recommend.

The TS2424 is a decent saw, but is overpriced. The R4512 has a better fence and a riving knife, but is also overpriced. They only cost $530 new. Buying a “new” one from the used market gets you the worst of all possible worlds: you don’t get the lifetime service agreement but you pay almost the new price.

If you can’t talk the seller down to $250 or less, I’d go with the R4512 or the Delta 36-725 from Lowes. Both are solid saws that will serve you well.

Thanks for the responses guys. Where are you seeing the R4512 for $530? Home Depot’s website has them at $599 (plus tax and shipping?).

I just looked at the Home Depot website and they show the R4512 for $529. My local HD has them in stock however if yours does not HD usually will ship most anything to your local store for pick-up there at no cost.

Keep in mind you can get 10% discount at HD (they usually honor competitors coupons like Lowe’s etc) which will bring the price down even more

That’s really strange, it’s $599 when I look at their website. I’m in California, I don’t know if that makes it more expensive for some reason???
