Topic tags/keywords: table saw r4511 motor ridgid

This is a rather unusual sale. I have a Ridgid R4511 table saw that I got free from a friend. Unfortunately, life sidelined the plans I had for it, so now I need to let it go. All I’m asking is (less than) what I have in it, which is $100. I am located in Tuscaloosa, AL.

This saw was given to me in rough shape. There was no fence, and the motor did not work. It also did not have a miter gauge, blade, or switch. I had grand ambitions of getting it back in working order and building a Biesemeyer clone fence based off this write-up. I got as far as getting the motor rebuilt (by Brannon Motors, in Birmingham, AL) and purchasing the steel for the fence. There is enough steel to construct an 8’ fence. The steel was well over $100, and the motor rebuild was about $80 IIRC. I’m letting everything (or only whatever you want of the above items) go for $100.

Feel free to ask any questions. I’ll answer the best I can. :)

Im sure there are PLENTY of us who wish we were closer. I was looking at building that fence too until I stumbled into a sawstop Pro fence for 130 bucks

So … maybe you can offer suggestions. I probably have to downsize soon. I have two good power tools, a three year old PCS Sawstop in excellent condition, with 30t Forrest, 40t Freud Fusion, both full kerf, Freud plywood blade and Freud plastic cutting blade, plus a spare safety cartridge. Short fence, Biesemyer-style. 3HP, 220 volts. $3300 ($2900 plus tax/freight) new to my door, plus blades/cartridge. Also a Grizzly 8” jointer, 2 years old, spiral cutter head, 72” long, almost unused. Surfaces covered with magnetic pads. I paid attention to your posts—we spent much of the last year out of state caring for my wife’s terminally ill parents, and I ruptured several discs installing an elevator for him. They really have been VERY lightly used. What prices should I shoot for?

-- Now, where did I put those bandaids?

Have your say...
