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
