I couldn’t believe my eyes yesterday as I perused the shop tool aisle at Home Depot when I came across this great table saw for $399. Needless to say, I headed home with one! Looks like they are blowing these out for a new model or it’s a disco. Get them while they’re hot!!!

Damn! Why didn’t I wait a year? Oh yeah my saw broke in the middle of a project and I needed one to finish:) And I thought I was getting a deal at $550. Well good for you, I’m sure you deserve it. Thanks for sharing. I think it’s a pretty decent saw, especially for that money! If I had the space I would buy two and keep one set up for dadoes! I only wish!

I guess they are planning to push the new granite-top model. I think the TS3660 is a fantastic saw for that price. I paid $400 for a factory refurb and couldn’t be happier with it. Enjoy!

I picked one up myself as well, and yes, Charlie, you’re correct. They’re clearing out these models to make way for, as far as the store clerk could tell me, the same model with a granite top.

I just got mine set up, and it sure looks like one sturdy piece of machinery. My only recommendation: have a buddy there to help you put it together!

I got a 3660 2 mo ago from HD. Opened a HD credit card, and got 10% off. At a now price of 399, and you do not have a card, ask if you open one if you get 10% off the 399, you had better jump all over it! The 3660 is a very good saw. If you keep waiting for something that is a “little bit better”, you a going to be forever dissatisfied. Settle on something, and go for it.

Yes, they will drop another 10% with a new HD card-they offered it to me when I bought mine.
The granite top one looks nice, but for me, this one is great.

Well, why not? I’ve had mine for about a month now so I knew it was inevitable that there would be some fantastic deal to frustrate me!! Just kidding – I’ve enjoyed the saw very much and that’s just the way things work. I’d advise everyone who was waiting for a good deal to go get one right away.

Hey klpete if it is within a month HD has price protection on it…take your receipt back to them and they will pay you the difference. Just did this with our clothes washer/dryer combo we bought. They readily reduced the price and gave us the difference. Sometimes it is nice working with the big box guys.

A friend of mine and I just recently purchased one for just over $500. AAAAAARG! It’s a great saw. I love the maneuverability with the foot pedal system since we have a small shop. Congrats on the deal!

Mark, yes you are right of course. However, I have been out of state for several weeks now and my month is past. Thanks for the reminder though.

Hate to grave dig this thread, but I’m not sure that they are selling this saw at all anymore. I don’t see it on the Home Depot website and a google shopping search doesn’t turn anything up either. My best guess is that this one just got discontinued to be replaced by the granite top one that is coming out. Can anyone verify this?

DannyBoy, I don’t know that for a fact, but I think you are correct about the TS3660 being replaced by the granite-top saw. Ridgid sort of offers one model of everything, so it would surprise me if they offered two table saws that were pretty close in size and power.

Good luck with your new saw airmarshallg. I am about to bite the bullet on the Ridgid jointer, I have read so many good reviews on the jointer and the saw you bought.
