I recently decided to purchase my first table saw...a ridgid. I *was* leaning toward the 2424, but took a look at the 2412 on my last visit to HD. Now I'm somewhat uncertain as to whether or not the 2424 is worth the extra $100...for my purposes. Can someone help me out with differences between these two? From what I can tell the differences are that the 2424 has cast iron honycomb extensions and the herc-u-lift system. I'll be using the saw occasionally...more or less every other weekend. Any help and advise would be greatly appreciated.
