Got mine a couple of months ago. They say it takes up to ten weeks but it was less than two, IIRC. Still haven't opened the box, though.

Got mine last year for a 20-year old saw. Only needed the serial number and got it in a couple of weeks. Installed it this summer in a couple of hours. It is of reasonable quality and makes the saw safer and still very usable. The best part is it comes with a new 1" thick table top.
Definitely worth doing.

James,
Here's the link I used.

It doesn't look like the 12-inch are included.

Just be aware - if you buy a used saw you should check the upgrade first.
I tried this a year or two ago. Turned out my model is and isn't recalled. They list it as one of the dangerous models - don't use. But they don't offer an upgrade either. They did offer some sort of discount coupon on a new saw that is no better than waiting for a sale. It takes money out of pocket to get anywhere.
You bought it, it might kill you. Tough, we told you about it, it's on your head now. Guess where I'm not going to buy other tools?
Mistakes happen but I expect the manufacturer to make good on them.

Does anyone know where I can get the upgrade kit from. I've just bought a rash and there stopped doing the kit in Feb apparently. I'm in the UK

I called this morning and when they offered the 100$ for sending in the old parts I told them that 100 would not replace the saw and I still needed to use it. The man said that they still had the kits and would send me the ki t instead of the 100. You just have to ask when you call the number.

I called Sears about the recall and they told me my saw wasn't affected (ty pical Sears BS) when I knew mine was. Called Emerson at 1-800-511-2628 and had them run the model and serial number. Sure enough, they sent me the ret rofit kit which includes the new table parts. If they haven't accounted for all of the saws affected, they have to honor your request. Sears will try and tell you the recall has ended, but it hasn't. Emerson will try and offe r you a $100 to send the carriage assembly back to them, but opt for the ki t. I called them about a month ago and my retrofit kit got here yesterday a nd I've already gotten it installed. I have an electronic model and I wasn' t about to disable a perfectly good saw. Just some info for all you other w oodworkers out there.

just tried to call the 800-511-2628 number 6-19-2015. Worked earlier this week as Emerson RASrecall. But now says number is malfunctioning and Ridgid is making effort to correct problem by 22 June. Guess retrofit kits are no longer available. Bummer.

The phone likely goes into a rotating bank of phones. e.g. a call center. So if the digital unit went down, wait it out and order one.
It is worth it by all means. I use the new one.
Just when you get it, add a layer of mdf or better ply on the top of the mdf which will save the new flat hard layer.
I'm concerned with absorption of water - my shop is not sealed or conditioned. Sometimes it rains inside. Put machine cover over it and it should be ok.

the new news is they are no longer sending a kit, instead you make the saw worthless by sending parts to the company and they will send you $100. Then you can buy a new one for $800, in otherwards you have been screwed.
