    Here's a direct link to the flash presentation:

    http://www.ridgidwoodworking.com/flash/popup_ms1290.swf

    You will need Macromedia Flash to view. Click Here.

    Please bear with me. We will have all the information you need up in about a week.

      If you have JavaScript disabled, you may not be able to see the popup. You also need to have Macromedia's Flash installed (it's free and usually when your browser encounters a Flash site, it will prompt you to download the Flash software if you don't already have it).

      If you don't want to bother with all of that, try this link: http://www.ridgidwoodworking.com/flash/popup_ms1290.swf

      (I turned it up for you all with a little peek at the HTML/JavaScript for Ridgid's main page.)

      Edit: I guess Jake beat me to posting while I was still writing mine.

        Wonder why Ridgid/HD would bring out a 12" SCMS before a 10". Is perhaps a 10" slider single bevel comparable to the Bosch on the horizon? I'm fascinated by how these product decisions are made.

          I'm sure they brought out the 12" in first because everyone wants and thinks 12" is better. I am just happy to see it out. I better get saving/begging. I've been waiting for this. My buddy has the standard 12" Ridgid and I have been very impressed with it over DW's.

            Thanks for the link Jake I like the presentation. Seeing as it's a teaser ad, it'll be awhile before the saw is released. This gives me time to reconoiter the situation. I have a very good job coming up in January that just might afford the extra money to upgrade from the Makita. But it remains to be seen if the saw will pass muster with the most accurate one on the market. I really like my new SCMS, but if the Ridgid is the "nuts", then we might have to do some dealin' on ebay and get the new one. Sure would be nice to see an introductory special price in combination with the MSUV stand....hint, hint!!!


            PS...methinks it's a three rail belt drive....

              I got a still from a friend of the new saw from the demo on the link above...cleaned it up and found it is a belt drive. It looks like a 60 tooth blade. Has a D-handle and a carry handle on top. Looks to have dual flip fences that stand over 3.5" tall when in the crown molding position. There are two cam levers for locks up front (like on the 2400 & 3612 fence)...one locks the rails and the other locks the table. The table is large and round and the base looks to have a handle on the left side (and maybe on the right as well). There are no extended feet as on other saws, it'll be interesting to see how it mounts on a stand.

              I thought there were three rails at first, but the clearer photo shows two and the head is canted to the left to hide the detail. There is a large dust bag (or dust canister) on back of the head unit.

              The table looks very large...might be the biggest on the market..sure like that. Small tables on SCMS's are like 24" tall wings on a Honda.... [img]smile.gif[/img]

              I also see no provision for extension "wings" since the base is very thin, but with the large table it may be unnecessary (especially with the stand).

              The dual bevel scale in back is huge...looks like the bevel lock is in the back.

              All in all it looks to be very interesting and there may even be a surprise or two (like a depth lock for dado cuts).

              If anyone wants to see a copy of the cleaned up still picture you can see it on my website...the link is on the home page.

                Thanks Kelly. Good bit of info there.

                What I don't understand is how this can cost as much as my 3612.

                  You'd think they would be less money wouldn't you? I think they are overpriced personally. De Walt has been known to run $100 gift card offers (as they are right now) and Sears has run their 12" SCMS for $489 recently to spur sales. The new Bosch is $700 according to sources in the know...sure like to see how that goes over.

                    Hey Kelly,

                    Some detective work. Your right, there are a few more surprises. I'll have a full set of specs up before Christmas.

                      Jake,
                      Do you have the spec's for the new SCMS any where to view yet?

                          After buying the Makita 10" slide and working on it now for a month, I've decided not to jump just yet. In fact, at this point it would take actually working on one for a day or two for me to even think about it. It's really nice owning one of the two most accurate sliders on the market.

                          On the other hand I will look forward to hearing your review Big J....

                            I will anxiously await the arrival of the new SCMS to one of the HD's here in Nebraska... I am going to start looking for a new home for my current 10" miter saw... I am ready for the upgrade...

                            I will give you a report Kelly someday when I can find one and get her home...

                              For anybody interested - Workbench magazine did a review on this saw in the issue on the newstands now.
