Topic tags/keywords: ridgid tablesaw 4512 rails fence wings parts

Hey fellow woodworkers, Hoping to find a set of rails and fence for a Ridgid 4512 tablesaw or looking for recommendations of others that are compatible. I’m trying to revive a partial saw that I picked up at a local estate sale. I’m missing wings, rails and fence. The saw appears to have been un- used but sure missing a lot of parts! What’s interchangeable with these? Thanks in advance,
Bill

Clones would include Craftsman 21833 and a model from Hitachi as well. Probably a few others. I’ve got the c-man version and it’s been good for me, others have reported issues with raising/lowering blade to be an issue. Mine has been good. I have the stock fence/rails and a pair of stamped steel wings i’m not using—replaced the fence with an Incra shortly after buying the saw. That said—don’t really WANT to part with the fence in case i find that dream deal on a PM 66 or Unisaw (so i can sell the c-man intact). Shipping from northern IN to TX might be a little salty too. Incra, Vega, VSC (Very Super Cool) fences would all be direct bolt—and better than the stock fence with split rails—the c-man version was a pain in the rear to square up!!

I have a brand-new unused Ridgid R4512 fence, yours for $100 including shipping. They’re about $200 new. I like my R4512 a lot, I think it’s a best buy in 120v table saws, and the fence is really nice. It is completely adjustable in every way possible, and it has t-tracks on 3 sides which I use all the time for auxiliary fences, jigs, featherboards, etc. (I had to return the first R4512 saw I bought, it had a DOA motor, and somewhere in all the back-and-forth I ended up with the extra fence). DM me if you want to know more.

Had the same saw.

Did not like the original fence that came with it. Would get three different alignments of the fence to the blade depending which portion of the split rail it was using (left, straddling joint, right). Worked very hard to align it. Just could not get it dialed in.

Got a Vega fence and loved it! http://vegawoodworking.com/product/table-saw-fence/ You can also get from Amazon.

Front bolted on. Rear rail needed one hole drilled into it to use the existing holes in the saw (If one recalls correctly).

Ok folks, I’ve got a Ridgid 4512 fence lined up but still in need of a complete rail set. I’m guessing there’s one out there laying around
