  • MS1290LZ major issues

    Just purchased the above saw and spent 3 hours trying to true it. Started looking close and see that the blade wobbles like crazy and can't make a striaght cut. Anyone have this problem? Any fixes? Bought it from Ridgid at one on the Woodworking shows as a reconditioned saw.

    Thanks for any help.

    Sounds like either the blade isn't mounted properly on the arbor or the blade itself is warped.

    The first thing I'd do is remove the laser disc and blade and remount them again making sure that the laser disc is seated correctly.

    If it isn't either one of those issues, then I'd just take it to the nearest Ridgid Service Center and have them fix or replace it.
    I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
