Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product Questions First, I can't seem to find (and no one at the store has any idea) the rip fence for this saw, does Ridgid make one? Second, what is the secondary attachment point (looks like the rip guide holder but to the rear of the saw blade on the table) for. it is not mentioned in the instructions and the store clerks are clueless as well on this? Third, When making a cut in 5/8" plywood every few inches or so the blade starts to wobble and doubles the kerf size from @ 1/16" (the blade that came with the saw) to 1/8". Is this normal or is there something wrong with the saw I received? The blade can be moved a 32nd to either side with a very light touch and considerably more with very light pressure. None of the dozens of other saws that I own are like this. If this is not normal how do I go about getting this fixed? Please answer all questions not just the first one, Thank you, Ken H.
