  • New to forum

    This is my first post and I would like to say hello to everyone. I have been reading the forums since back in September 2007 when I bought my TS2400 and found these forums. I have got a lot of good information here and really enjoy coming here everyday. I went with the 2400 instead of the 3650 because of space. I have a garage that we park a long bed pickup and an suv in. I also have a large work bench (2' x 8') and riding lawn mower and lots of other stuff stored in there. I had to do a little re-arranging to make room for the 2400 (I store it folded up). I bought the saw to build a haunted house for Halloween. I sawed 4'x8' sheets of OSB and a lot of 2x4's and other items. The saw did a great job. So far I am very pleased with the performance and accuracy. It is a very sturdy saw for a portable. When I bought the saw I went ahead and bought a 24 tooth rip blade and a 60 tooth crosscut. It came with a Ridgid 28 tooth that I have not really used. Because of the direct drive and wanting to make the motor last, I actually change between the ripping blade and the crosscut. I don't want to put excessive stress on the motor using a combination blade for everything. I think if you use a blade made for a certain task that you get better results. Just my opinion.
    For those who have recently purchased a Ridgid product, it took a little over 5 months for the LSA to come through.
    Also the HD were I bought my saw still has a display with the 2400, 3650, drill press and other tools and not just Ridgid on display.
    I went out and bought a wet/dry vac today. I got the Ridgid WD1665. I looked at the Craftsman and Shop Vac, but thought this was a good value for the money. I will have to use it for a while to see how good of a job it does. I also purchased the better filter for fine dust. This is long enough, I'll quit now.

          Welcome to the forums. Glad to hear the saw is doing what you need.
          I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.
