I just purchased the Ridgid 4512, performed all of the alignment procedures with a dial indicator. Raising the blade and checking for the shift issue was the first test that I did, found shift to be <.004” which is acceptable and not an issue. Performed all other alignment procedures with out finding any issues. I just upgraded from using a Shopsmith for quite a few years and I am really happy with the 4512 saw.
I have an Incra LS-TS-32 that I want to install on the 4512 along with a “white” woodpeckers router table on the left of the saw.
1. Does anyone have any tips on how to attach the router table to the saw table? Woodpeckers did not have any suggestions on how to attach it. In addition, I need to fabricate a 3” spacer to make the table dimension to a standard 27” wide for it to fit correctly. Any tips on attaching spacer to router table?
2. Should I remove the left side steel extension and move it to the right side of the saw?
3. Should I fabricate my own extension and attach to the right side?
Any suggestions regarding these questions would be greatly appreciated.
