  1. Newbie Looking for Used Table Saw

    Ill look into this, regarding the riving knife, couldn't i just buy one on amazon or ebay? Does splitter have any benefits over a knife?
  2. Newbie Looking for Used Table Saw

    Yeah. I have lots of little things that need to get done and need to be bought! Keep the advice coming. The guy I bought it from had a piece of wood clamped onto his fence on his basement table. I need to build a work table first...

    Sorry for the delay in posting. I just picked up the Ridgid R4511 and brought it into the garage. The guy who sold it to me was just so cool. He makes wood pens on a lathe he bought a new house with this great work shop in the basement and had so much advice to impart. Anyway I'll post some more pics later but here she is in her new home! I can't post a pic for some reason. I'll try again tomorrow from a desktop

    Especially to my wallet

    1 Thanks for the advice!

    So anyway, I have been in contact with the owner of the R4511 and the pics he sent me look really nice. the saw looks pristine. im going to go over there Sat night rip some boards and if all goes well air lift that 450+ lb sucker home Ill let you know how it goes! Would that fence work on a Ridgid R4511?

    Thanks! I know Ridgid has a life time warranty, but it doesn't transfer. Would it make sense to buy a new one for a couple hundred more? OR. these things so rarely ever break that it doesn't make a difference.

    So turns out the saw is still available. What unit specific questions are pertinent to this specific machine?
  9. Newbie Looking for Used Table Saw

    Is 400 a fair price for that version,?
  10. Newbie Looking for Used Table Saw

    that looks really nice. not to far away either.
  11. Newbie Looking for Used Table Saw

    Thanks everyone for all the advice. I emailed about the Delta and he said it was already sold. Also, the more i read the more it becomes apparent how important the fence on these things are. Im just outside Chicago and I dont want to drive all the way to Rockford (for a 3 hr round trip not including looking at the saw) only to find out there is some issue! I have no doubt the Craig's List Gods will provide if i remain faithful and patient.

    This is great! Thanks so much. The truth is I need to do a ton more research on this but that king looks pretty damn fine.

    I would eventually like to make built-in shelving and cabinets and furniture for various rooms in my house

    I understand the need for a substantial piece of equipment. Especially for safety. But as you said compromises are often made. And in this case i think $1500+ on a '66 may be a bit much especially starting off! Even if my wife doesn't flip i have no room in the garage for that sucker!
