    L Turner, the router table is made by Bench Dog Tools and the miter gauge is an Incra Miter1000se. Both of these items were purchased at my local Woodcraft store and I highly recommend them both. There is more on the router table in this thread.

            Hello HotDiggity,

            I was finally able to take some time yesterday and make supports across the sides for my table. I only connected mine across the top and I have very little movement in my table now or none at all. Mine does not look as good as yours but it works.

            Thanks for the pic of your design. It gave me ideals in designing mine.

            Too bad Ridgid did not fix this problem with wobbily legs before sending out these great saws.
            Regards
            Randy

              I have been shopping for a 10" Table saw and following a recent visit to Home Depot for a physical review of the Ridgid T3650 I noticed the woble of the base. I raised the matter with the sales person and was informed that it was a display model with a lot of use due to the man handling by porspective buyers (what????). After the visit to HD I emmidiatly logged into the Ridgid Web site and to my surprise U all confirmed my suspicious that there is a problem with the base. Surely it is a negative review for the tool which will affect sales and in my case I have eliminated Ridgid due to instability of the base, after all why should I buy a new tool and emmidiatly have to fix a known problem.

              IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO KNOW WHAT THE DESIGN TEAM AT RIDGID IS DOING ABOUT THIS PROBLEM.IT IS OBVIOUS THAT THERE IS A DESIGN ISSUE AND AFTER ALL THE COST TO ADD TWO METAL PLATES TO THE SIDES OF THE BASE SIMILAR TO THE ONES IN THE FRONT IS MARGINAL COMPARED WITH THE POTENTIAL NEGATIVE REVIEW OF THE TOOL NAD LOSS OF SALES.
              IN ADDITION A RETROFIT KIT SHOULD BE AVAILABLE TO ALL U PEOPLE THAT CURRENTLY OWN THE T3650 TO ENABLE THE PROBLEM TO BE RESOLVED ON THE FIELD AT A NOMINAL COST. SURELY SOME METAL PLATES OF THE SAME COLOR WILL LOOK MUCH NICER THAT DIY BOARDS OF MDF.

              ANY COMMENTS RIDGID?

              I AM A PRODUCT MANAGER AND OCCASIONALY FACE SIMILAR SITUATIONS, AND IN THE COMPETITIVE WORLD WE LIVE WITH A MULITUDE OF BRANDS COMPETING FOR THE SAME MARKET, RIDGID NEEDS TO REACT QUICKER TO THIS TYPE OF PROBLEMS.

              By the way I am a proud owner of a substancial number of Ridgid professional woodworking tools and very happy with them.

                Hello PMOW,

                I would not let the Wobble deter you from buying a great saw. I fixed mine with adding an extra support braces which stopped all movement.

                Now after ordering and installing my Zero Clearance Insert it made this saw even better. Just my 2 cents worth.
                Regards
                Randy

                  Did your machinist friend make that router table for you? I've never seen one like that before.
                  Did you put it right into the cast iron extension wing?
                  There are a few manufacturers that make cast iron router table extensions for the table saw.

                  I do have a question though, could you put a heavy cast iron router table extension on the right side? I don't mean to replace the existing cast iron extension, I mean to add to it. It would be a lot of weight, but could you do it? Would you need some sort of support system?

                    This question has been asked many times here and there are varying answers. Some believe in braces run back to the saw legs and other favor legs which run straight down to the floor. Still others don't feel the need for any legs. If you do some searching you should turn up at least 5 threads here on this subject.
