I sure hope this isn't too stupid of a question. Just purchased a Ridgid R2400 laminate trimmer and dont understand why the base seems to tilt off of 90 degree from the collet and bit. Admit to limited experience with laminate trimmers. The last one used was borrowed about 5 years ago, and I recollect that the base was 90 degrees to the bit and you could use the trimmer facing in any direction, which was nice for going around corners. I tried a few test pieces with the new trimmer and can't quite seem to get the hang of how to trim the top laminate with out shaving off some of the edge which I glued up first. The manual doesn't speak to this angleld base and I even went so far as to check the other Ridgid trimmers for sale at my HD and they are the same way. What am I missing here? BTW, I was free-handing the trimming since I had quite a bit of excess laminate around the outside edges and didn't use the edge guide.
No announcement yet.
