As far as I can tell, from looking at the tools, they are a
good value for the money. They are decent quality, and, while they
would likely fail if pushed too hard, the probability of your typical
hobbiest pushing them too far is pretty low.
Yea...I believe the Ridgid stuff all does have the "standard"
3/4"x3/8" miter slots. It was the Sear's Craftsman stuff that was a
hair smaller, so one was locked into buying THEIR accessories.
Hear! Hear!. One of the things I am proudest about after 40
years of wrestling wood is that I can still wiggle all 10 fingers in
the air. Probably the WORST thing I have done is sliced a couple
gashes into the first and second fingers of my right hand with a
bandsaw (piece of wood split on me). The gash was not too bad, but,
alas, it got infected, so it was a bit dicey for a bit.
In any case, best wishes to you, and, all the other folks
taking part in this complicated online community for a safe,
productive and positive 2005!
I haven't seen the new Delta, but I looked at the new Ridgid saw and
was impressed. The Ridgid I looked at had cast wings, casters, a good
fence (better than my Jetfence, but that's not saying much), and (from
what I could tell crawing around) some very beefy looking trunnions.
It got good reviews in a recent mag I saw.
I don't think you can go wrong with either the Delta or the Ridgid.
while now. A
Yeah, ditto that. I've been hanging out here for about a year and a
half (mostly lurking). Lots of good information here and generally
polite and reasonable discourse.
You don't say what brand. I have an older Delta of the same specs and have used
with no trouble except for the rip fence which would never line up. Had to get a
new rip fence they designed which is called a T-square fence. Now works perfectly
and is very reliable.
