Ridgid R4512 table saw, Should I keep it? - 40 replies

Hi there, I purchased a Ridgid R4512 brand new recently. I am fighting a mental battle of whether or not to return the saw. 1. Missing bolt from rip fence. Waiting on replacement has crippled the entire operation. 2. Cannot align the riving knife to the blade since the rear vertical adjusting set screw is in such a dumb spot that it ...
