Need Ryobi bt3100

My son in Kansas is looking for a Ryobi BT3100 saw. His Home Depot is out of stock and says they are going to get more. It's been several weeks so far and no saw. Does anyone know where else he can find one. Seems I remember that Sears used to carry the saw. He might consider a good used Bt3100 if it is somewhere near Kansas. Chuck B

_Which_ part of KS, pray tell? We're in SW corner, but that's ~400 mi from KC area, say...

His local HD can locate one at another store and get it transferred.

Good chances getting it online, delivered less than HD. Have you shopped online? BTW, this is a very low-end saw, not worth buying used. I know you want a "table saw," but a quality circular saw would be a much better value in the long run.

They might also have a wheeled contractor's version, TS2410LS, for around the same price. If size is a factor, the TS2410LS might be a good way to go. I haven't seen too much about it, the TS3660 is the more popular saw.

(If the URL wraps badly, just do a Google Search for "Home Depot Ridgid table saw" and it's the first result.)

On Usenet, no one can hear you laugh. That's a good thing, though, as
some writers are incorrigible.

The TS3660 just went on sale at my store for $399. I think there might be an overstock of them and they need to make room. Not sure if it is nationwide or not, but my district is all the same. They also do this periodically with the portable miter saw stand.

They have a new saw, the R4511, in production that sells for the same price as the TS3660, but has cabinet-mounted trunions, a riving knife and a granite top, and they may be clearing out stocks of the 3660.

Holy schnikies! If it goes $400 or less, here, I don't think I'll be able to resist.
It's a great saw for 500, under 4 makes it too good to pass up. The only thing I'm suspect about is the adjustability of the fence-- square-to-slot. When I was messing with the floor model, the fence was out of parallel to the slot by about a 1/16" at the top. Most fences have an adjustment fort that... I just couldn't find it.

Don't worry too much about the floor model you tried. If it has been on the floor for more than 3 months, it probably should be sent to the vendor for refurbish. After the public finishes stealing all of the parts they can get off in 60 seconds, its surprising that it even looks like a saw! The fence is adjustable and works very well. Once the word gets around, I doubt that he saw will last very long for $400. I know nothing about the new model, with the granite top, so I'll hold my judgement until then.
