I have the TS2400. I've noticed the Ridgid stand is open below the saw. Mine is mounted on a rolling cabinet for a stand. It works well,but solid top doesn't allow the dust to fall. I clean around the motor, with air, after each use. My question is, will a solid base lead to problems, such as heat build-up or trapping to much dust, etc. Any advise is appreciated. I am new to the forum and am not sure what the graemlins and UBB code is for. I hope this works.
