Rated 5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Durable and Smooth I have used this saw a fair bit and have been very pleased. It is very smooth and cuts with a good ammount of power. I had to micro allign the fence to square it up. That was fairly difficult to do, but with a framing square, and some patience it has really paid off. The fence has stayed quite square.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beware of the 2 piece front rail I have owned this saw (R4512) since June of 2011. It is an EXCELLENT table saw. Overall, the fit and finish of this saw is great. The installation instructions told you everything you needed to know for a successful set-up. The parts were packaged in small "slots" that were each labeled for which portion of the installation where they were to be used. Once assembled (a 2 person job due to weight) and fired up I did the nickel test on the cast iron and metal wings. The coin stood on its end and never moved. The cut quality is very good. I did replace the "stock" blade with a 50 tooth Diablo combination blade. Many recommend changing blades for ripping vs. cross cutting, but I don't find that to be necessary when using this combo blade. As the standard saw you can rip approx 15" to the left of the blade and 30" to the right. An extension table is not required to the right, but is beneficial. The fence locked down very well and stays true to the dimension set via the tape measure. It is the type which "locks" both on the front and rear of the saw. Dust collection is quite good due to the hood that is attached to the bottom of the saw assembly. I had to rig up a 4" to 2.5" reducer since I currently have it attached to my Ridgid shop vac. The one issue I had with this saw was the fact that the front rail is 2 pieces. It was VERY difficult to put the pieces together and have a smooth surface for the fence to slide over. Every time the fence gets to that area it BUMPS. I did some research and decided to replace the "stock fence" with an after market fence & rail system. I chose the Vega Pro 40 which offers 40" of ripping capacity to the right of the blade. I did, at this time, add an extension table to the right. I should also mention that this saw is eligible for the Lifetime Service Warranty program from Ridgid. Be sure to read the details on how to register your product. FYI -- The UPC from the box will be required. Bottom line ......... Would I recommend this saw? POSITIVELY January 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw for price This saw has great improvements from older Ridgid model; enclosed motor, riving knife, etc. Does a really good job (not perfect but really good) of eliminating sawdust with 4" vac line attached. Easy assembly and pretty accurate right out of box. Have a friend on call to stand it up though. 30" rip width allows easy lengthwise cuts on 4x8 sheet goods. Have not tried to cut 8/4 maple yet but no problems ripping 2x6 lumber with included combo blade. Standard aftermarket blades fit with no issues. Only thing I didn't like is table insert. Included insert works great, levels easily and is secure but is 1/8" steel. Thin edge supports at opening make it challenging to make zero clearance or dado inserts. For folks looking for a good middle of the pack tool, this saw will be perfect. Better than most other inexpensive brands, but it's also not a top of the line professional tool. Well worth the price, and if you can get it on sale, you can't go wrong. I'm very happy with it and look forward to years of use. December 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by In my opinion you won't find better! I have used numerous smaller/cheaper saws trying to save a buck and have always been unhappy with the results. I finally decided to get a quality saw and after much research I settled on this saw. I bought it for several reasons one being the warranty. I got it to my shop and found myself alone having to lift it off the truck and lifting it for assembly. Needless to say do not try it by yourself. I finally got it all put together using the instructions and it was very easy to understand. Not only were there no missing pieces I even had a couple screws left over. The saw is in my opinion amazing. I used a sawstop saw a few times and like the Ridgid as well as I did the sawstop. The fence on it is spot on, the blade needed no adjustments, it was basically set it up and run some wood. I use it for building furniture and need some very precise cutting and this saw responds fantastic every time I turn it on. Like I said, in my opinion you won't find better. December 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Do your research, then you'll come back to the R4512 I purchased the R4512 from Home Depot almost a year ago, and I must say - it's a GREAT table saw. Assembly was straight-forward, instructions were perfect. Note - it's HEAVY - so get some help lifting. I'm using it as my center-piece in my shop as a "permanent installation, so I removed the wheels, added outfeed table, and extensions both left and right. Now, I can cut full sheets with no worry. Again - great saw.! I tried the penny test as shown in a demo video - and it worked! I use this saw every day for rough work, as well as very detailed small-parts work, and I have to say - you guys NAILED IT! I'm a very happy customer, and have purchased several other Ridgid products. December 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by After buying my new R4512 Table Saw I usually expect upon installation of a new toy is bound to have a hiccup,you know a bolt or nut short,or some misalignment ,right. Smooth as silk.....nice job boys! This saw is the first edition to the shop as for permanent tools. Note: when they say get help to lift......have the guys over for a beer or something, and then they can druel over your new saw! We'll not literally . Thanks again for a good product at a reasonable price. Chris, All Seasons Handyman November 27, 2013

Moving Rip Fence

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

Answer: 
Removal of the rip fence assembly is just a matter of raising the fence lock lever/handle, and lifting the rip fence assembly off of the saw. If you have any other questions or concerns please contact us at 866-539-1710.

Answer: 
it's NOT a right-tilt - it's a left-tilt. But the fence does come off relatively easily.

My boyfriend got this table saw for me for my birthday a little over one year ago. We waited to put it together for too long, which meant that by the time I got around to trying to register the product, it was too late. So I'm not sure if I'm under warrantee or not. Anyway, he put it together for me but there are two things that are a little off that we couldn't get just right. Something seems to be missing from the foot pedal so the table doesn't stay in a locked rolling position when we try to move it. Obviously, it's very hard to move the table when it keeps dropping down over the wheels. Also, the area where you're supposed to be able to add something like a router table is uneven. One side is longer than the other, and we can't figure out how to make it even. I feel like we need someone who knows how this is supposed to be put together to come and help us fix these things. Is that possible?

Answer: 
The saw carries a standard 3-year warranty, based on the receipt. Unfortunately, there is not any type of in-home service we are aware of, where someone can come out to the customers home and assist with the problems you are describing. Please contact RIDGID power tool technical support group through 1-866-539-1710, to have a technician go over the various problems with you.

Answer: 
This happened to me as well. I turned it over and found that I didn't put the wheels on properly. I had to study it for several minutes to understand.

Turn it over and engage the lift pedal and you'll notice how it lifts the wheels. Look closely, and you'll see that you need to remove the bolts that are holding on the wheels and move the part that's doing the lifting to the other position (it is on a little hinge of it's own). Replace the wheels and you're good to go.

NOTE: I didn't have to do it to all 4 wheels. It was only necessary on the front two. Your situation may be different.

Answer: 
No. There is, however, a space where you could put one. If you're handy enough you could easily attach some good plywood to the right side of the table between the front and rear fence guides.

Answer: 
Go on-line and search for Leecraft (RG-5) for standard zero clearance and I believe the Dado is an RG-6.

They are available, I think, from Amazon. If not, surely from Leecraft directly.
