Recently I have had 3 serious kickbacks. last one just missed my head and punched a hole in my garage door. RIDGID R4512 IMAGINE THAT! I used a feather board to hold the stock against the fence, but still got 3 bad kickbacks.

I may have been a little sloppy! as well.

BUT I ordered the BOARD BUDDY ROLLERS from Peachtree, has anyone had any experience with these?

Does your Ridgid have a riving knife?

Yup, they work well Rich. I haven’t felt the need to mount them on the sawstop… Yet.

Rich, I had bad experiences using a magnetic feather board with the R4512, I suspect that holding a board to the fence makes it press harder against the side of the blade that is heeling. I tripped a breaker a few times.

Of course it is Rich, he created this account 45 minutes before Cricket shut down the Las Vegas one.

I don’t get this feature LJ has that enables anyone to change their username,we spend a good amount of time to get to know the person behind the name and all of a sudden that name is gone .
Also, I’m too old and get confused easily.

I saw the first couple of posts by this guy in Knotscott’s thread and the sock puppetry was immediately apparent (to get around the ban, timing, general off-the-hinges tone). How many socks does this guy have? Do they not perma-ban people here?

I do not think the Ridgid 4512 has anything to do in the kickback. I truly think the end user is responsible for the kick back. And that there is no customer service that can fix the problem.

I did like how he snuck onto Scott’s thread. It was awesome.

Never used board buddies.

I think you have to start a new account to change names. I like your post.

Is that possible with the blade guard, riving knife and anti kickback pawls in place? I’m kind of new to this and I’ve only had my 4512 for under year.

with all the posts peppered throughout on how unhappy that individual is with their Rigid, why doesn’t he just sell the bleeping saw and buy a different make.
That would solve two problems.
1. the source of the problems goes away and 2. we wont stumble upon another complaint thread that this person has generated with endless complaints and yelling in capital letters all over the place.

If it was me, that saw would have been long gone.

Problem solved….

If it isn’t the same person on the other threads, then nevermind…..

This is profile number 5 now I think??

Even if LJ’s does ban IP addresses, I don’t think it’s all that difficult(even for the chemically unbalanced like Rich) to generate a new one.

Rich….piss poor attempt at a project rip off. You could have at least stolen a picture of something decent.
I did notice that your newest incarnation can spell though…good on you for stepping up your game.

I have been woodworking for over 30 years. Knock on wood only 1 kickback and it took me 1 second to determine it was my own darn fault. Your having 3??? I suggest you run away while you still can cause if after the 3rd and your not able to determine why it is best you get out while you still can.

Yeah, but you at least have to make them work at it a little bit. I’m sure that IP banning is like a crappy bike lock – it’s not great, but it’s still enough to deter 95% of the problems.
