Hi: I'm in the market for a table saw. I've been looking pretty seriously at the Ridgid R 4510 Portable/Jobsite for $499 at Home depot and probably would buy the Ridgid 6 1/8" jointer at the same time. With the Lowe's 10 % moving discount and the current Ridgid Friends & Family 20% rebate it would work out to be about $360 for the saw and about $310 for ~the jointer, total ~$670 plus tax. But there is a TS3650 with cast iron top for sale used for $250 in my area. It is owned by a contractor who bought it new about three years ago. He says it is in good shape, but he did use it often. He says it runs good and everything works well but he is missing the miter guage. He has the herculift and at sounds like everything else. He says he has taken good care of it - no rust on the top. I haven't looked at it yet. It would cost ~ $60 to replace the stock Rigid miter guage. I'm just a hobby woodworker not looking to do tons of production work. Give me an opinion -- should I go for the newJobsite R4510 or the used TS3650. Thanks. George
