  • loose arbor on 12" sliding compound mitre saw?

    Hi I would like to know if anyone that ownes a 12" sliding compound mitre saw from ridgid has checked the play in the blade arbor.
    I just brought mine home today and after an hour of setting it up and squaring it I got to try it.
    When i started it my friend asked if the blade was warped.
    So I looked and when I held the blade between two fingers enough to move it, I could get the blade to move side to side very slightly. To me too much.
    I was holding the blade at the tooth at the half way point just below guard.
    If anyone has any thoughts please feel free. Maybe I am picky.
    If I hadnt had my tools stolen in a break in I would be comparing it to my old Dewalt 12".
