Table Saw

Looking to upgrade my old Craftsman 10" table saw and have been looking at the Ridgid #R4512. Anyone have any first hand experience with this saw? Been looking at them for a while and got some HD gift cards for my birthday, so I may be pulling the trigger soon.

I bought one about 10 years ago and like it. The only complaint I have is that the arbor is not long enough to cut wide dados (been a while but I don't even think I can stack enough chippers to cut 3/4"). I think I will contact rigid.

I have it and it will dado 3/4" I do it all the time. The only complaint I have about it is the fence alignment tends to get off, ive read you can upgrade the fence to fix it, but I just check it by measuring anyway. It's a good saw, I have built many sets of cabinets with it.

I went to Lowes to buy the Dewalt https://www.lowes.com/pd/DEWALT-10-i...e-Saw/50040968, and ended up buying Kobalt https://www.lowes.com/pd/Kobalt-15-A...e-Saw/50056619 And I have been very happy with it.

Mine will not but it looks like they will now, they must have changed the arbor design.

Hitachi

I don't post much on here but i did research here before i bought me one. I grew up doing custom cabinets, trim work, and stairs. Now that's my hobby. I wanted a saw that was portable and could make large cuts. This was the only portable saw i found. I was weary about the brand but so far it's been great.
