I have an RAS that has a recall. I ordered the kit and was really surprised when it arrived with a new top.
I never asked for it nor did I expected it. Does any one know why a company would ship a big slab of MDF for free when supposedly only the guard has the problem. If you count your nickels and dimes like I do, the basic math on additional shipping cost for a 1” slab of MDF across the country multiplied by the number of upgrade kits that have or will be shipped gives you a very high number. In today’s economic environment why is this company being so generous? Something does not seem right! Has any one else found this to be a little odd. “Nothing for free” I believe the old saying goes!

The new top is required to allow for the new blade guard to operate properly. The fence needs to be moved closer to the front of the saw. Down side is cross cut capacity is reduced. I would have never installed the new setup had I known this. I had already thrown out my old blade guard before installing the new setup. I just sold my RAS and will buy another RAS without the new setup.
