Well I finally bit the bullet and bought a new, to me, table saw. I saw a listing on CL for a Ridgid 3650 for 200 bucks. I went a couple of days later to check it out and it was in damn near pristine condition. Everything was there and the seller also threw in a dado and zero clearance insert, and a crosscut sled. I’m ridiculously excited about my new saw, even if it did take three of us to get it out of the back of my truck!

Great haul. Now, spend some time reinforcing the base,lift mechanism, where the bolts fit the base.
You’ll have a good saw if ya kinda spend some time with the stuff that’ll firm everything up to make it solid.
Good saw, just sorta weak in the base system.
We just went thru that at the plant.

Congrats!! I had one of those until I fell into a deal on a Uni. Nice saw. Like Scott suggested, take some of the money you saved and get yourself a GOOD blade. You won’t regret it.

Nice saw Richard, I had one and it did a very good job. I found that a 50 tooth thin kerf combination blade would cut anything I needed cutting. That space on the right side is ideal for a router table. Enjoy.

Nice find. You’re lucky it was still there a few days later. At that price I’m surprised it wasn’t gone the same day.
