Size as well as Weight

The Ridgid 4512 is just another heavyweight contractor table saw that weighs in at a substantial 267 lbs. Hefty tools generally mean less shaking and more equilibrium. So if you don’t need to move the table saw from jobsite to jobsite then this might well be an excellent thing for you. The same wheeled foundation which may be seen on the Craftsman 21833 is additionally incorporated by the Ridgid 4512. I must say I enjoy this design that is intelligent. Using a foot lever the table saw could be lifted onto its wheels to be readily went about your workshop. If space is at a premium in your workshop or garage, this is great.

Fence and Miter.

The RIDGID 4512 comes along with an aluminium fencing that runs on aluminum railings attached at both rear and the front of tool.

You may simply need to follow the stages in the instruction guide to do that.


RIDGID have given us a great table. It’s aimed totally in the weekend/semi pro woodworker who does not have budget or the space to warrant hybrid vehicle tool or a full blown cupboard, but still needs a quality, great sized, cast iron table saw without spending a lot of money. The belt driven induction motor will yield you a simple, silent and strong tool that can readily manage whatever you decide to cut on it. I actually enjoy the wheeled base so the tool can quickly be moved around your workshop, a simple press of the foot lever deploys the wheels.
