Hello all,

New to this forum, and I have been reading posts on and off my topic of interest.

I picked up a Ridgid TS2400 about a month ago, on speculation that the brushes needed replacing. As it turns out, one of the armature windings had all of the factory smoke let out of it. The price the Ridgid wants for a new arbor is cost crazy, so I found a Ridgid chop saw at a pawn shop that I THOUGHT was the identical motor. As it turns out, the worm gear angle is different than on the table saw. I used a bit of machine shop skill and mated the old worm gear to the new armature. But I think I ruined the armature in the process.

Anyway, long story short, I am looking for a way to get this table saw running, and not pay for the Ridgid president’s vacation to the Caribbean.

1. Is there a way to convert this table saw to induction motor and pulley dive?
2. I read some where that the motor from a Bosch 4100 may work in the TS2400. True?

Here are some pics of the armatures if someone wants to compare.

Thanks!

I saw that someone was parting out a Ridgid TS2400 table saw. I need one part that you can no longer get. It is the tape measure that fits on the front rail. If anyone has this part please let me know I need it asap

Hi there,

I have the same exact scenario as yours. I just purchase a used TS 2400 0 and the armor looks just like yours. did you find a solution to your problem?

Thanks

Actually no. I found an almost identical armature from a Rigid miter saw, except that the worm gear was at a different angle. I drew up a diagram for transplanting the old worm gear onto the new armature but the machine shop wouldn’t touch the job, being a one-off project. I tried it myself with bench vise and hack saw, but couldn’t center it properly. So in the end I bought a Rigid Table saw from a person, the one with the granite top. Perfect for what I need. And… the other Rigid saw is piled in parts here in my shop. Tried to sell them on Craigslist, but no takers.

Too bad, the original TS2400 has a lifetime warrenty on every part. Just have to call Ridgid and talk to them.

While I am a big fan of ridgid tools, I believe the original gray colored saws carried a lifetime guaranty against MANUFACTURING defects. The TS2400 was probably produced >10 years ago. While I’ve never been turned down by ridgid for replacement parts, a new armature or motor might be a tough sell after all this time.
