  • 12" Sliding Compound Miter Saw - Good Deal?

    I was at HD today, and they have the Ridgid 12" Sliding Compound Miter Saw (MS1290LZA) on sale for $399 (regular $799).

    http://www.ridgid.com/Tools/MS1290LZ...w/EN/index.htm

    Currently I have a Craftsman miter saw (non-sliding), and I’m trying to decide if I should jump on this deal – $400 seems like a pretty good savings.

    Does anyone know if this is an old model and is being replaced with a newer version?

    Any input appreciated, thanks.

    So I was just looking this up on the HD website, and it shows the regular price as $599?

    Still seems like a pretty good deal, but does anyone know what the regular price actually is?

          It is regular price 649.00 CDN at my local HD. Currently on sale for 599.00 if that helps you make a decision.

          Sell your Craftsman and that sweetens the price even more.

            I also have that same saw and after a number of cuts the plastic blade guard will inhibit cutting of wood....does not retract enough to allow cutting of material....so far ridgid has chosen not to come up with a solution...they sent me a reply and I could not access the solution and I advised them of this....nothing so far....I would highly recommend not buying this saw.

              A long time ago, even longer ago than the start date of this thread, I had that same problem with the guard on my miter saw. It happened to me after I had changed out the OEM blade for a better one. Long story short.......I didn't reassemble the blade guard correctly. frank6123, I suggest you consult your Owners Manual and double check to make sure the guard assembly is mounted correctly.
