Sorry to bug you Guys again so soon.I have a ridged contractors saw on a
folding roll away table it has some vibration which I know affects accuracy
I hang a small concrete sidewalk pad under it weight 40lbs it helps
somewhat. My question , is there a better way?
Let's start by taking a look at the hardware on your saw. Are all the nuts
and bolts tight? Is the blade flat and true? Check the arbor. Grab it
and try to move it up and down. How much does it move?
Direct Drive or belt? If belt driven, is the tension adjusted properly?
Are the pulleys in line?
Check for missing teeth, too.
Flatness could be called runout or warpage.
Doctors prescribe medicine of which they know little,
to cure diseases of which they know less,
in human beings of which they know nothing.

Best check the base too. There's quite a few moving parts there, and they
could have loosened up over time.
Do you have the manual? Ridgid manuals are really good about explaining
the normal adjustments a tool may need.
