I just purchased a Ridgid portable table saw. It seems like a nice saw. However, I found the set up to be much more extensive than I would have thought for a professional quality tool. It is true that a more experienced woodworker could have likely adjusted the tool in half the time. Still, I couldn't help but be disappointed after spending the money and traveling to the nearest home depot to get this particular saw. I've owned sliding miter saws made by Bosch and Hitachi and out of the box they were dead accurate. The good news is that I'm confident the saw will work fine. I just wanted to see if this is a common occurrence with the portable saws (or the Ridgid saw in particular)? It comes with a 90 day Money back guarantee (Ive still got 87 days), I could always return it if it turns out to be a lemon. I don't want to have to do that though.
