Top 2 Best Ridgid Saws

What Real People Are Saying About The Ridgid R4513

Great saw

Lightweight...and solid fence...has a great feel when working with it. I'm usually a dewalt man..but I am very pleased with this saw

We are still happy after two years of steady use of this saw

I purchased Ridgid’s Model #R4513 - 10 inch heavy duty job-site type table saw. I purchased it for my small shop knowing I was not buying a commercial quality shop saw. I purchased this saw from another source for $499.00 in March 2014. It looks like the price has gone up or I caught a good sale. After almost 2 years of frequent service I’m very happy with my purchase. If you decide to get one there are a few things you should do to get the most out of your saw. Take a few minutes to Check alignment, tighten any loose bolts and lubricate the adjustment screws. On my new saw the rip fence was skewed a little. You can easily correct this problem by loosening the four screws next to the fence lock. Also you can correct the with width indicator by loosening the two screws on the indicator window. You can easily readjust this when you make blade changes too.

The table on this saw looks like a case aluminum alloy and is easy to care for. I do use a table preparation product once in a while to remove tree resin build up and keep the table slippery. But you don't have to deal with rusting of case iron here in the hot humid Florida climate.

The stand for this saw makes one person setup and storage easy.

I have been looking for an extension table that fits this saw to assist with ripping jobs. I was unable to find one so I designed and built my own using materials I had on hand. I choose some 1/2" Birch Plywood for the top surface because it can be aligned to the table slightly low. The saw table is slightly proud of the extension table to prevent lumber from catching the leading edge of the extension table. The extension table is supported on the saw end by a couple blocks bolted through the saw housing. The legs are a simple over center design and fold flat for easy storage. See the attached pictures for additional details.

It arrived in perfect condition, and it needed no adjustments

I've have used this saw frequently, but not for long periods of time,for about 2 years.It arrived in perfect condition, and it needed no adjustments. It is sturdy and has plenty of power for most jobs. It did lag a little on long 2-inch rips, but I guess that's to be expected. I especially like the scale on the front rail for easy measurements when using the rip fence. A couple of reviewers on YouTube was concerned that the scale was flimsy and wouldn't last long, but mine has held up nicely. The saw opens and folds easily for easy movement. My biggest complaint is that rip fence and and miter gauge don't lock in place when stored on the saw. I have to use a bungee cord to keep them from falling out when I move the saw. It would have been easy to have engineered something that would hold them in place. Also, it's a bit of a hassle to raise and lower the riving knife, and when it is lowered, if it's not locked in place, it can fall out. I lost one and had to buy to whole assembly to replace it--over $50.
