Rated 1 out of 5 by sadlydisapointed from The old model was amazing I purchased this saw when if first came out about 10-15 years ago. I'm a cabinet maker by trade. For the money, the old saw was absolutely amazing. This IS NOT that saw. I haven't even put it together. I stopped at the stamped steel deck extensions. They used to be solid steel and my old saw is still running as good as new, just at my friends as I had to leave it behind when I moved down to florida. I've been doing this too long, and it's obvious the stamped steel will bend and twist over time, it will throw off the fence guide and be horrible. I don't need to have it happen to know it will happen. i'm not wasting my money and I'm returning it asap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wudnstuff from Great saw could be better This saw is quiet, strong and easy to set up. The fence is good but could be better and the flip down wheels are a great idea, but they went the cheap route with only 3 wheels, which makes it tippy and cumbersome to move....The fact that the motor can changed over to 240v rocks!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1bhwilso from Solid table saw for the money. No issues with the saw. Guide is dead on. Built builtins. Looks like I built them in a large shop and not my garage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GusGus from Cast iron table not true/straight I already knew that many people have issue with the blade not being true/alignment. However, I know of a lot of people not having any issues with it either. So on 11/25/2016, I went ahead and bought one. Today 11/26/2016 at approximately 1600 hours, I started to put it together. After installing the base/legs and flipping it up, I went ahead and checked the cast iron table so I can align the extension tables. So, I used a 4 foot level, and I noticed that the left side was lower than the center and right side. So, I went ahead and got a straight hedge ruler just to make sue the level wasn't the issue. I again noticed that the left side was about 1/8th of an inch lower than the center / right side of the cast iron table. Well, I was pretty excited to get this table saw hoping I would save money, but instead I will have to spend some time returning it. I'm lucky that my wife went ahead and gave me the okay to buy a better saw. I guess if you do framing work this table saw would be okay, but when you are building furniture it's a different story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by miked54 from Great table saw I have several Ridgid products and have never had a complaint about any of them. This table saw is no exception. I did take my time in setting it up to make sure everything was a precise as possible and that did take an hour or so after assembly but not an issue. I have been using it for 4 months now and it has performed flawlessly. As I have limited space I really appreciate the wheels. It is very easy to move - very easy. At least one other reviewer said the saw drops suddenly when lowering it and mine did the first time. Now I just keep my foot on the peddle and ease it down. Another person mentioned the stamped table extension but mine work fine and cast iron would have greatly increased the weight. The cuts have been right on and great dust collection (with my Ridgid shop vacuum!). To me, this was money very well spent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Short from Great saw, terrible mobile base I just purchased the 4512 about 2 weeks ago for $371 at my local HD on clearance. Unbelievable price for this saw. It is an excellent little saw, very deserving of 5 stars. The fence is excellent and was dead-on out of the box. The blade was not parallel to the miter slot, however, but it is an easy adjustment to make. Here is the major problem: the new 3-wheel base. For whatever reason, Ridgid decided to discontinue the awesome 4-wheel base and replace it with something that is absolutely worthless and dangerous. The saw tips and the only way to correct it is to grab the fence rails which knocks them out of alignment. The saw also clunks hard to the ground once the base is disengaged. I've spoken to customer service but they are clueless and can offer nothing. I will deal with this inconvenience because it really is a fine saw otherwise, but unfortunately the new 3-wheel base is so poor that I could not give the saw its deserved 5-star rating. Please note the packaging depicts the saw having the better 4-wheel base, so buyer beware. Also, the dust collection hook up is underneath the saw, so be prepared to get your knees dirty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lst357 from Bad switch My problem with the saw is the switch. Mine broke soon after I bought it and I had to rig up a light switch to continue using it. The light switch is not convenient or safe. I would like to locate a replacement but not sure which is which.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smylnirish from I am a fan This is not the first Ridgid tool I have purchased nor will it be the last. I bought this saw for my home DIY shop and put it to work right away on my laminate floor project. It is very mobile and when you set it down it is incredibly stable. In every instance I got straight clean cuts from this rock solid machine. I am looking forward to future projects with this tool.

is there a router table for this table saw?
Bench Dog Promax Cast Iron Router Table Extension fits this saw with no modifications in place of one of the extension wings. More difficult to mount on left

Moving Rip Fence
Since this is a right tilt blade does the fence come off easily for bevel cuts?

Where can I get zero clearance insert?
This saw does not use the somewhat standard 1/2" thick table insert,but uses thin metal plate. Where can I get inserts for zero clearance or dado setup?
leecraft makes both. About 33 bucks each. Some people say they bought them directly from Rigid through home depot at the order desk for $25. I only found that out after I bought mine on amazon. I don;t even know if they are still available through HD but it would be worth a try in store. They are not on the web site.

Dust collection question
In the assembly instructions, It states to only install the plastic dust collector if using a 4" system. It doesn't say what to do if you don't have a dust collection system or if you have a different size collector system. Do you just leave it out and continue with the next step? What issues will that create?
You'll have to clean up your mess every time you use it if you leave the plastic collector off. If you want to use a different size collection system, find an adapter at Home Depot or Lowes or another hardware store. That's what I did.

I'm assembling my new saw. On the rear rip fence guide rail, none of the holes align with any holes in the rear of the table. What gives?
I'm at a loss as to why none of the holes in the rear rip fence guide won't line up with any of the holes in the rear of the table. HELP!
There are two pieces to the front rip fence rail and two pieces to the rear fence rail. You most likely have joined the two rear pieces in the wrong way. Take out the bar that you used to join them and move shorter piece to the opposite end of the longer piece and rejoin them. Try the holes again.
