  • PALS for the 3650

    Can anyone tell me if they used a PALS kit to setup their 3650? i see on their website a reference to the US made Ridgid. I was under the impression that the newer 3650's are made in china. Can anyone clarify? I just got the saw last night and would like to order any setup tools i need today. I already have a dial caliper on the list and already own a veritas straight edge, but if there are any more tools recommended please let me know. thanks

    The 3650 includes a cam adjuster. No need for the PALS.

        A Combination Square is handy to have for setting and checking 45 and 90 degree angles and marking cut lines. Please see picture.

          The problem with many combination squares is that they're not always very accurate. If you have something in the shop that you know is square it's a good idea to check the combination square against it every time you use it. Otherwise, you could spring for a good one.
          I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
