Topic tags/keywords: ridgid table saws table saw ts3612 ts3650

Hey guys…I’ve spent some time searching, but wanted to hear some firsthand experience opinions. I’m looking at buying a used table saw, either the Ridgid TS3612 or Ridgid TS3650. Any preference one over the other?

What didn’t you like about the answers you got on the other site?

Save your money and buy a current model that is supported should you have problems.

I have the 3650. It has served me well for nine years now and going strong. No problems with mine. I use it every day.

I have the 3612 that I bought off the floor at HD for $300 and the tool manager gave me a set of rails and fence from the 3650, which was the new “orange” saw back then. For my uses it has been a very good saw. I spent a week taking it apart and truing the entire tool, (because it was assembled at HD), and apart from DC parts, a new belt and lots of wax it has not needed anything else. It’s a tool the work comes from the craftsman.
