  • Blade Wrench

    I recently purchased a TS24122 saw and the guy did not have the blade wrench for the saw. A quick search of Ridgid suppliers failed to turn up a blade wrench. Seems that they have all of the other accessories you might need but no blade wrenches. Would Ridgid (Gardner) have the original? I would assume that the same wrench fits the newer table saws? Any help would be appreciated.
    Also, is the AC1050 lift-caster kit worth the money and is it really available?
    Thanks for any help.

    The arbor nut on my 3612 is 1-1/16", any open or closed box wrench of that size should also work on your saw. If you aren't able to come up with one, shoot me a PM and I'll see if I can't find the one that came with my saw as I don't use it.
    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.

      Yeah, that is the same figure my calipers gave me. I do have an old "monkey wrench" that I use to remove breech plugs from muzzle loaders, I can use that to remove the arbor nut. Again, thanks for the reply.

        it has probably gone the way of the 9950 (universal herc-u-lift) and is no longer available. i'd try ebay or craigs list for a herc-u-lift. there isn't a better mobile base made for your saw.
        there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

          I am in a similar state, except I have one of the wrenches...so I thought I would be good and just grab a monkey wrench for the nut. Sticking the open side of the wrench in though, I noticed that there was no flat part on the arbor to lock it in place. It is round. It doesn't look striped, just made that way. How do I lock it to get the blade off?

            stick a block of wood up against the blade and then turn the nut, the blade will hold the shaft normally, (at least on any table saw I have ever used),

            recommend a single size wrench that is made to fit the nut not an adjustable wrench, one can round off nuts easier with an adjustable wrench than most any other type,
