    New saw damaged in shipping? Make them replace with a new saw with lifetime warrenty.
    info for all: --- "I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me."

      I'd go for the new saw also. It won't have the Lifetime Limited Warranty as that promo is over but at hopefully all the part will arrive in good shape this time. I'm not sure that the warranty will do you much good anyway will it? Does RIDGID have service centers in the UK?
      I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

        Get it replaced. Keep the original receipt dated before Jan 31, poof, instant lifetime warranty on the replacement

          I'd get a new saw but not Ridgids for this particular type of saw. Ridgid has already announced that they are going to discontinue the RAS and my guess is that parts will be sparse at best. If you can find a comparably priced Delta RAS, I'd say that would be your best bet. They carry parts for saws they built like 100 years ago.
