Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 55 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by What's up with the QA on the fence? I bought this table saw from the Home Depot. I was excited to get it home and I took a day off work just to put it together and get it set up. The first saw I got was badly damaged as many pieces were bent, almost looked like a fork lift hit it as the body of the say was bent and dented. I repackaged it and took it back to the store where they were hesitant to return for exchange. In the end I got it exchanged for a second go around. The second saw went together well, until I got to the point where it's time to fine tune things. After some test cuts and many tests I finally figured out the issues. While I trued up the fence to the table to 90 degrees on the left I found out that the fence was not true by 2 degrees on the right side so it will never cut perfect on the right side. Also the 2 rail system in the front appears to be from 2 separate extrusions as they are differnet colors or finishes. Most importantly they are just off in size/radius right where the fence rides. No matter what you do to have it sit right it will never sit right since the pieces are different shapes. While minimally it will never be right ever. Planning on taking this saw back as well and not going to give it a third try, even thought it sounds great and runs smoothly. The fence is one of the most important parts in order to ensure that your cuts are true to the dimension, angles, etc. May 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by You'd need to spend a whole lot more. This is my third table saw. I had a nice Delta Contractor saw years ago that did a great job. It was damaged in a fire. I replaced it with a Bosch jobsite saw. I thought that it was a nice size - big enough to use well -small enough to stow. Too bad it broke and there was no way to get the carriage replaced. Needless to say, Bosch fell off my list. So, I looked closely at Delta and Ridgid. We use the saw frequently for crafts and home projects. I needed a 'good enough' saw. Not fine furniture building or a production cabinet shop, but it still needs to be dependable and accurate. I didn't think anything else on the market came close to this saw for anything near this price. It really hits all points well. It goes together nicely, is easily calibrated and a real joy to use. (I DID save the included blade for something 'special' and mounted a nice Freud). The biggest surprise is that is far easier to move about that the portable unit it replaced. I particularly like the blade guards and dust collector. Of course, the fence and t-handle are top rate. I think it compares favorably to units that cost over $1000.00 - but I found one at Direct Tools for about $380 - the cardboard box was torn.. I was ready to buy one at the regular price. I would be just as happy with it. I would love to see more accessories available for it. But, most can be shop made. January 10, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by semi portable great saw I was very impressed when i first put it together. it looked amazing. i was so proud of my purchase. I have been wanting a saw like this for a while. my local home depots could not keep it on the shelf long enough for me to buy one. So after finally purchasing one and building a table around it it cuts really good. It does not bog down too much when cutting full sheets of 4'x8'x3/4". and after 3 years of use its still running like a champ. I do have a few issues, i wish the right cut was deeper than 30 inches. rigid should make an extension available that would give the saw a deeper right cut capacity preferably 50 inches. my other issue is that 2 wheels have already fallen apart or cracked. No biggie i did replace them. i found a match at home depot for $5 a piece. the last issue i had was when i replaced the blade with a thicker blade the measurements on the clear indicators were not slotted wide enough to make the proper adjustments to keep the red line marks true. I made them longer with a rotary tool, again no biggie. all in all it is a good saw for the money. i do love how easy it is to move the saw with the wheels that drop at a steps notice December 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by 100% Recommend I purchased this to replace an old worn out Contractor saw, and I decided I didn’t want to have to spend my money twice. This is an excellent saw for those that don’t have the capital to purchase a professional/Industrial saw from one of the bigger woodworking brands. Dust Collection is good, and become great when you make some zero clearance inserts for it. The extension wing is the perfect place for a router table to fit into. And the blade came perfectly aligned to the miter slots. My only complaint about this saw it’s the fence. Mine did not come perfectly straight, about half way along it start to bend and from the middle to the back it curves away from the blade (thankfully) about 6-8 Mil. This is not a large amount and my accuracy does not need to be that perfect so I see no need to replace it however thought I should include that. The rail locking system has an issue of not always locking at 90 degrees; it took some practice to make sure you do it the same way every time in order to ensure good cuts. That said one day I will replace the rail and fence but for the time being it is ok. December 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by underpowered yeah I'm OK Nice table great fence underpowered and by the way it is underpowered May 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Other Reviews were spot on I'm an armature carpenter but experienced mechanic and all around do it yourself-er. Cheaper tools are on the shelf at Home Depot but I spent the extra $100-$200 dollars, as I do for most of my major tool purchases, because I don't want to get something that will not last or has minimal features for a few dollars less. Thus far have only assembled and made test cuts. Reviews from others on Home Depot online store seem spot on. While this IS an above average quality product generally, it is lacking in some unusual areas. Stamped metal extension shelves; bolts and nuts are of very poor quality (dimensions do not mate with tools prescribed in instructions) and the hex head bolting is very, soft making some assembly tedious and difficult. Seems like a really good tool so why skimp on your fasteners and hardware? Will see how it performs. After dialing in, my test cuts so far are quite impressive. April 4, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by I was very happy...BUT I wanted to upgrade to a heavier, more stable and more powerful saw, so I researched and, short of a full pedestal mount (which I could never get into my basement) I decided on the 4512, which proved to be heavy enough to manhandle on my own. By reading reviews and literature, the setup was a bit lengthy, but not over-difficult. After that it was love at first site. I rigged it for 220V operation and was very pleased. Until I hit the switch after not quite a year of use and ...NOTHING. I am a recreational cabinet builder, so I would not say, it's overuse. I signed on for the Lifetime Service Agreement (LSA#, so I had to make a few calls. The clincher is, the thing pretty much has to be dis-assembled to transport by normal people with normal vehicles. Then Home Depot, who said they were a certified repair shop, could not handle 220V. So off to another shop 40 miles from home where it sat for 2 weeks before they determined the motor was shot. Now a minimum of 2 more weeks before I can retrieve an go through the assembly process again. I'm in the middle of a project so this a major inconvenience. Like I said, I loved the tool's performance, but this is my first Rigid purchase and, if they're comprised of lower grade components, I'm not sure I like the inconvenience of repair, even if it is free of charge. #I also wonder what Rigid would have done without the the LSA). The hassle has been costly in time and aggravation. I had Delta and Ryobi saws that I pushed probably passed their limits an never so drastic a failure. Disappointing after reading all the 5 Star reviews. March 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Strong and sturdy I like the strong and heavy structure making the saw very stabble when sawing large pieces but easily moved with the wheel structure, Assembly instructions well designed. February 14, 2015

Answer: 
I haven't seen a pre fab unit but you could easily make one from 14 5/8 x 27 inch 3/4 melamine glue ups mounted as shown on the extension insert page. All you need to do is rout out the hole for a router plate. MCLS makes a 1 1/4 inch top that can be cut down but there are no pre fab brackets for the 4512 But because there are holes in the extension tops and the end bracket you could fabricate something to mount the router table level with the 4512 top and use the rip fence with a box fence plate attached or just drill some holes and use your MCLS fence. You can" rigid 4512 router table" and see some photos.

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.

Answer: 
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.

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?

Answer: 
I would not leave the dust pan out unless you are ready to clean up a major mess every time you use this saw. The 4" outlet on the dust pan can be down sized to fit just about any dust collection system or shop vac. You can even put a short bucket under the outlet to catch the dust.

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.

Answer: 
Yes, the dust chute is to be left out, if it is not going to be connected to a 4” dust collection system, which would keep saw dust from accumulating in the encloses area that installing the dust chute creates . No, leaving it out should not create any issues with the use of the saw.

Answers

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

From your description, it sounds like you have the rear rail assembly assembled incorrectly. You need to go back over the assembly process. That would be the only logical reason/cause for the holes to not line up. If there were an issue with the machining of the holes in the rail parts or the saw table parts, we would be getting calls on it, and we are not.

Regards,
RIDGID
