  • Just got a 2424 Table Saw- Questions

    I just picked up a used 2424 Table Saw- I hope you guys can answer some questions for me!!!

    1) How does the warranty work? Does it cover the motor if it dies?

    2) The top of the table is rusted and really dirty. It won't effect performance- but- is there an easy way to clean/polish this up?

    3) The guy didn't have the guard fence with it. Additionally- there's missing 4 screws missing in the red plate around the blade (I forget what this is called). This causes the plate to sit a little high to where it interferes with the fence. Can I order these parts?

    This is my first Ridgid tool- replacing a Craftsman Table Saw that died on me, I hope this is an upgrade in the right direction! I appreciate any/all help!

    1.) There is no warranty on second hand tools. You buy used, you get what you get.

    2.) Use the Search feature at the top of the page. Use Rust Removal as your search subject and you'll find numerous threads on this subject.

    3.) You can pick up those set screws at any hardware store. Just bring the throat plate with you to make sure you get the proper sized ones. As for the missing blade guard, that assembly can be ordered from M & D Mower.

      Ahhh- bummer on the warranty. I really thought it applied. I probably would've looked at new if that was the case. Dang!

      Also- there's a weird looking extra piece that came with it. It looks like a large saw- with a straight blade on it. What is that used for?

      I appreciate the info- Thanks!

        WOW! The replacement cost on this motor is $560! That's insane! The entire unit didn't cost that much new! I just hope it doesn't go out on me anytime soon...

          If you don't have a copy of the Owners Manual, you can print out one here. It kind of sounds like you're describing the splitter with the blade guard missing from it.

          As far as the motor is concerned, you certainly should be able to find one locally for much less than $560 is the need ever arises although I doubt if it ever will. Those Emerson built motors last a long time.

            Well, that's good to know. I really hope that motor holds out well. That's the reason I bought this unit- the motor on my 'Crapsman' burned up- and the replacement was $140 + shipping, tax, etc. I paid $150 years ago for the entire saw. LOL. Plus, the awesome reviews/posts on this saw sold me.

            Thanks for the help guys!

              that's a great saw. i would check with ridgid. the last time i posed that question to their CS, the response was that the older saws (2412, 2424, 3612) were guaranteed for life. unllike today's ridgid power tools, which will be repaired for the original owner by ridgid for life if LSA registered, the guarantee was associated with the tool, not the purchaser. i'd make the call to them and let them show you a written policy which excludes you (a second owner).

              for the rust, i would use topsaver and a course scotch brite pad:

              then finish it off with 2 or 3 coats of johnson paste wax. i find it works better when applied and removed immediately, don't wait for it to haze over.

              a photo of the piece you are describing would be helpful in determining what it is. good luck with your new saw.
              there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

                13 and 14 amp Emerson/Craftsman motors are pretty easy to find on Ebay in the $75-$125 range.
