  • Ridgid 3650, bevel cranks back past 0 degs, what's the procedure to stop it?

    My manual was stolen, but fortunately they didn't get the saw.

    If I turn the bevel all the way to the upright stop the saw blade is actually cocked a bit past 0 deg...how can I set the stop?

    Got to use it for the first time this weekend:




    Thanks

    Buy a Wixie angle finder or one of the other brands that do the same thing. IMO, you're just asking for troubles if you trust the bevel indicator that comes on any saw, not just Ridgid's.

      There are 2 allen head screws in the top of the table. These are the adjustment screws for 0 and 45 degrees. Don't remember off hand which one is for which.

        Well I do check my angles, but 0 degree should be the one I have set in stone more or less

        Thanks for the adjustment procedure. I also found they have the manual still online.

          Glad you found the manual online. I was just going to state that there should be a couple of set screws used as "stops" that would limit your adjustments to 0º and 45º.

            Left was the 90...thanks.

            My saw is a 3660 actually, but I guess the 3650 is almost identical.
