$180 for a 2424 in good condition would be a good deal. It's one of the last of the Emerson, Built In USA, contractor style table saws. FWIW, if you so desire you can move the rails over farther to the right to increase the rip capacity of the saw. If you do this, you may have to drill a hole or two and replace the tape but those are easy fixes.
All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
+1 on worth it. i have a 2412, which was an entry level model of the 2424 and 3612 models. my saw has done everything i've asked it to do. and i've passed on keeping 3650s (that i got new from HD for $99) and a 4511 (that i also got @ HD new for around $250). what can i say, i like my saw. and those older gray emerson built ridgid tools carry a lifetime guaranty that is tool, not owner, specific. for $180, i'd buy it myself if it wasn't so far away.
there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.
