Topic tags/keywords: ridgid r4512 pals

Hey everyone,
I’ve been thinking about adding in-line industries PALS to my Ridgid R4512 but have read a couple of posts on various forums that they don’t fit properly and need to be filed down. Does anyone here have any experience with this saw and PALS? Thanks for any help anyone can offer regarding this.

Pardon my ignorance but what are PALS?

O.K. So now I know what PALS are. I can’t help you as far as if they will fit your R4512 seeing as I don’t own one yet. But let me ask you this? Have you had the blade alignment problem with your 4512?

KPW, I’ve had no real blade alignment issues as far as I can tell but I do know my saw isn’t tuned as well as it could be which is why I want to install the PALS on it. Overall though I’ve been very pleased with the saw. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a saw in that price range, especially since I got it for $375 on black Friday when ridgid had their 25% off sale :)

That’s a great price!! I’m really thinking of getting one or the Craftsman 21833 (same saw). There’s alot of talk about the blade going out of alignment when raising or lowering the blade. Hopefully you got one of the good saws.

Ken, I had not heard of this and have had no issues with it. Ive heard more bad things about the craftsman than the ridgid it seems even though they’re the same saw like you said.
