Here are a few pictures of my new table saw, a Ridgid TS3650, I love it. My good friend Pete and I set it up the day after Christmas and i really could not be happier. Set up was pretty easy with two people taking about four or five hours. I would recommend having a buddy help out with set up as this machine is close to 300LBS.
I haven’t had the opportunity to really get into any serious cutting other than a few small jigs but some larger projects are soon on there way! The first thing I noticed when I started her up was how quiet it is compared to my old Ryobi 10”, and virtually no vibration even with a stacked dado. The dust collection port under the blade seems to do a fine job and there has been just about no adjustments needed to square the saw up.
I did alot of research on this and other table saws before I decided on this one and came to an obvious conclusion that this is a saw that can really last a long time (If not a lifetime)
Spring is around the corner and that means sawdust will be in the air, let the projects begin!!!
(Thanks for the help Pete)

Along with the obvious small hand and power tools my shop includes;
- Ridgid 13” Planer
- Ryobi 10” Drill Press
As you can tell I’ve spent some time at Home Depot.

It May not be the biggest shop with the greatest and most accurate tools but it has served me well over the past year.

Kevin, you have a nice looking shop that is well organized. I really like the wood floor. It is so much easier to stand on as opposed to a concrete floor.

Nice shop. I could work in there without any problem.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed the visit.

Very nice shop .The ridgid saw I think is a real winner. I checked one out for a student and the fence was as smooth as butter.

Have your say...
