Personally attacking a fellow forum members ethics is just crossing the line of reasonable behavior.

I’m honestly hoping the two of you are good friends, and you are just trolling each other. If not, I for one have heard enough. I would suggest you seek to resolve this with either Ridgid or the store where you purchased the saw.

I always appreciate feedback from fellow woodworkers about products they have used, but your posts concerning the Ridgid table saw stopped being constructive awhile ago.

I am on the Rigid payroll. We are sorry you are experiencing this difficulty.

The reason we at rigid do that is for better air flow. The wind coming off the blade at higher rpm can cause deflection. We at rigid would of liked to keep the standard 3.4mm slots like on the top but had to resort to a larger channel for improved airflow.

Please ship the caster wheel back to us and we’ll fix or replace the issue for you.

Thank you for your understanding.

The point being AGAIN why would anyone design a slightly smaller shallower slot on the side than the top? Its not even a difference of a fraction or a millimeter. which I could see if they were a SIZE in difference? Why would you make anything that couldn’t use the same size nuts and bolts for the same purpose as much as the design allows.

I don’t see any car manufactures making 5 difference size lug nuts bolts on there wheels but people like WILLIE would say “WHAT’S THE PROBLE with that?” Get five different sized tire irons and lug nuts and shut up

FRDIGE no one is holding a gun to your head to read any threads on here. If my harangues offend/upset your Lilly white Christian sensibilities, I suggest you don’t read them.

And the people that love their Ridgid sanders GOOD FOR you. I think a 40 dollar sander is a little less complex than a $500 table saw. Anything more complex than a sander RIDGID has no business producing.

LOOK I have a great huge RIDGID SHOP VAC. it works great. Which in fact proves my point…

EVEN if a Ridgid product works correctly (MY SHOP VAC) IT SUCKS! IT SUCKS GREAT!

hey KNOTSCOTT how long have you been on the RIDGID payroll?

Also I keep finding out more and more manufacturing and design issues with this boat anchor the more complex accurate and tight work I do.

This last one I wanted to make an add on fence so I can put on a pair of Board Buddies on top of the fence for safety and accurate ripe cuts.

SOOO I took the fence with me to LOWES to fit what ever bolt into the top slots….. Well I bought enough bolts to use on top and the sides for any add one I might want to add on.. 3/8 bolt fit perfectly in the top slot after just a little filing. The size difference was not noticeable to the eye from the side slot and the top.

OH MY GAWD. I had better got check the other sides side slots. NO doubt they will be different that the one side and the iop. NO doubt they will differ in size and width down the length of the slots as well just like the miter slots are difference sizes and crooked as a dogs hind legs.

I am trying to save my fellow LJ the grief I have suffered. And there are way more serious complaints on even this forum about their grief buying this train wreck than happy ones.

Surely I am not the only one complaining about this animal. I have read the posts. BUT unlike them. I stuck it out and tried to caress this one till it could be usable in stead of taking the 200 pound beats apart,boxing back up and driving it a lon g long drive to get my money back.

Some of you are correct I was a fool for not taking it back when I found out the FIRST issue. the miter slot was way off to the blade. But i fixed that

But almost weekly I find yet another design manufacturing issue.

RIDGID sent me one email….. TAKE IT BACK to a Ridgid service center!

“F” them! Come and get it your damn selves and pay me for the time and parts tools I had to get it to the point of at least making firewood!

How so? I’ve used this technique successfully in the past when I was getting no where with a company.

Edit just googled email bomb… I misunderstood the term email bomb. I do not suggest email bomb.

What I suggest is to send a single email to all email addressees associated with Ridgid asking for help.

I have had my Ridgid R4512 since April 2012 and have not had one problem with it. I upgraded the fence to the Delta T30 because I wanted that style of fence and not because their is anything wrong with the fence that came with the saw. Would I rather have a 1956 Oliver 270-D….Heck Yeah, but my current one car garage with one 110 outlet will not support it. But the Ridgid does the job it is supposed to do for the entry level saw that it is.

I have to say your attempt to call out Knotscott is not cool. Scott spends his time trying to help people with their questions. The same questions that he answers over and over again for folks that are new to this forum, new to woodworking or maybe just looking to upgrade. I have read his replies on more than one forum and all of them are helpful, reliable and serious. He has obviously spent a lot of time researching and testing saws and the blades for them. I, for one, am thankful for his work and been able to benefit from it more than once.

Ridgid produces and sells millions of tools per year. Go out to any construction site, and you will see Ridgid tools on almost all of them. They are bound to have a few lemons out there, just like any other manufacturer. Anyone can pull up this same information with just about any leading tool manufacturer. I am willing to bet that you could look up recalls with every brand in your shop.

Ripping a entire brand because of a table saw issue seems pointless. In this case…..almost comical.

Actually when explaining a response full disclosure is welcomed IMO. If you have a connection to the product it’s nice that you put out front that you have a financial interest in the product/service for which you are talking to. It helps the reader make an informed decision to it’s value to the thread. Again that’s my opinion and that and a buck fifty will get you a cup of coffee. Cheers have a good one.

Almost everyone on this site holds very strong opinions about one thing or another. Pro or anti Sawstop; Pro or anti Festool; hand tools v. power tools; Harbor Freight Great…Harbor Freight junk etc. etc. There have been other obsessive posters on other subjects in the past. But, my advice for anyone with such obvious animosity for something is to get rid of the thing that is causing you so much grief, and move on. Ridgid probably wishes that you would stop bashing their tools, but in the grand scheme of things; they could probably give a s**t less if you ever buy one of their tools again. For the record, I have 0 Ridgid tools in my shop, do not work for them or HD but know that a lot of others have positive experiences with Ridgid tools and HD. So… I say: sell or dumpster the saw and anything else you have that is Ridgid, buy something else and move on and let this thing go. From the comments, I am not the only one that is getting weary of this series of threads. Go out the shop and make something instead of sitting at your computer making yourself and everyone else on this site miserable.

I don’t know you. I don’t know your reputation. All I have to go on is your posts from this thread. The posts in this thread lead me to believe that there’s a good possibility that you’re chemically imbalanced (no, not kidding) and that you’re incapable of forming anything resembling an objective opinion. As such, I’m not going to give your opinion any weight. Your behavior and tone doesn’t simply make it easy to disregard your rantings, your behavior and tone makes disregarding your opinion the only sensible option.

Off-shore auto companies expatriate their profits, which equates to approximately 7k per vehicle. Further, the US auto industry includes far more domestic content than any of the imports, including that are nominally assembled here. Every sale of a foreigh-brand vehicle is a minor tragedy for the US economy, and probably also steals jobs away from your neighbors who work or used to work in one of the thousands of suppliers scattered across the US. And so bridge loans and quick-rinse bankruptcy assistance were poor startegic decisions for the US government? Good grief, the blindness of some people.

Aside, sales figures don’t lie and nor do the engineering studies: Titan is largely unloved outside of the footprint of Nissan plant-towns. It pales in all ways when laid alongside Big Three alternatives.

Taxes of any sort are theft. The big 3 either took my cash or approved the process. So this is someone other than the gvt for me (an anarchist) to hate. I am sure the foreign companies get subsidies in some way. I hate them for it too. But the colossal screw me GM hit me with is beyond the pale. It is the difference between hating Martha Stewart or Lenin.

You can’t steal jobs. The market works as the market will. Human action in free markets will drive the bad out as long as left unmolested. But with the gvt that isn’t the case. I don’t care about my neighbors who had competition remove them from the market equation. You make it sound like the u.s. economy exists in a vacuum. Money that goes to Japan will then go to India for a service of some nature and then the u.k. and back again to the u.s. For a giggle read this http://mises.org/library/save-piano-industry

Every sale of a foreigh-brand vehicle is a minor tragedy for the US economy, and probably also steals jobs away from your neighbors who work or used to work in one of the thousands of suppliers scattered across the US. And so bridge loans and quick-rinse bankruptcy assistance were poor startegic decisions for the US government? Good grief, the blindness of some people.

Aside, sales figures don t lie and nor do the engineering studies: Titan is largely unloved outside of the footprint of Nissan plant-towns. It pales in all ways when laid alongside Big Three alternatives.

It s a $500 saw sold at Home Depot. Seriously, do you expect tool room quality tolerances in that price range? If you are expecting the quality of a $3500 Unisaw you will need to spend $3500 and buy a Unisaw.

I don’t expect cabinet quality cuts from any saw in this price range. I do expect any tool to do as advertised. AND IT IS UNSAFE!! more than other TB in this range. If the blade is as much out of parallel with the miter slot as must as a 32nd from front to rear of the blade AND if the miter slots are not cut straight, the possibilities are enhanced greatly for a kickback. and I have had three using all the accessories like feather boards etc. and one went right by my head and punched a hole in my garage door!

AS long as I can save just one of my fellow TB to steer clear of this beast my work is done and saved them grief. I do not care who you think I am or if you think I am out of my mind, my conscience is clear if I turned even one person away fro many ridged product.

I also find it very telling so many of you not only accept, make excuses and promote CRAP like this R4512 but in fact defend CRAP like the Ridgid R4512 and their other tools.

I have not heard any glowing reviews over the new Ridgid Band saw. I wonder why that is?

I truly believe a lot of you would defend any car manufacture if they came out with square wheel on their cars. Just because I complained about it.

Now I know why our government is completely and omnipotently full of corruption, criminals and traitor. You people are allowed to vote. In my own humble opinion…

Like I am surprised…....

And we embark into the deep waters of macro economics and government analysis without the necessary paddles. Get back in the workshop and make some paddles. Or anything. Really.

Well, if that’s all it takes, then you can stop posting about it. I promise you that I will never even consider buying this saw.
