The 2412 was the original contractor saw that Ridge Tool/Emerson marketed under the Ridgid name after Emerson and Sears parted ways. IIRC, that was in 1998. A year or two later the 2412 was followed by the 2424. So a rough guess is the saw could be 8-10 years old.
~~Don't worry about old age; it doesn't last that long.
Great grandsons dad just came back from HD,
he swung deal with mgr, if he bought, mitre saw. planner, and table saw
he would get 15% off, am now proud owner of three Ridgid units.
If you had opened a HD credit card account you can get an additional 10% off. I think you can have a total of three cards. Because there were some scratches I haggled the manager down 20% on a trailer. I then opened another credit card account and received an additional 10% reduction. I don't recall if the 10% reduction was on the original price or the reduced one.
Best of luck with your new tools. My experience with Ridgid products has been exceptionally positive.
