  • 2400 rip fence question

    I was out tinkering with my 2400 today...getting the rip fence sliding table adjusted to allow smooth fence travel. It was loose and was hanging up on the sliding part. While it was getting adjusted, I noticed that the fence tape reads 23" when fully extended. I poked around a bit to see if there was an adjustment to lengthen this to 24" and noticed the tape goes to 26". Mine will not go past 23" and it's dead on accurate at that measurement...what am I missing?

    Does the fence have the ability to go past 23"? It seems to me that the rear rail is the culprit.

    I loosened all the nuts to adjust both rails, but still can't go past 23". I'm sure the fix is simple, but I can be as simple as they come sometimes....help!

    Kelly,

    Most likely the rear rail is misaligned and needs to be slid to the left just a bit. Loosen the two screws the bolt the rear rail the extension table (not the main table). Release the slide lock and slide the rear rail only over about 2" to the left, retighten the bolts, making sure the extension is still level with the main table, and you should be to get 25" of rip capacity.

      The mystery has been solved...it's the front rail that's off...by over 3". I'm going to move it as you said to move the rear rail and see if that works. The one in HD's has a 25 3/8" cut capacity....heck, that's more than my 2424!

          I never would have noticed either if it hadn't been for the current project at hand. Still haven't moved the rail, but I'm sure it'll fix it. I've got to cut some 25" panels on the jobsite tomorrow....I hate working weekends but times are tough!

            I got the front rail adjusted and the capacity just went up to 25 1/2"! This makes me want to move the rails on my 2424...hmmm...

              Kelly,
              It's very easy to move the TS2424 rails and attach the the spacer componets... I feel it was well worth the money...

              Here are a few pic’s:

                Thanks for the links Big...I'm gonna do that soon. I want to make the third space a table that holds a router, so I'm going to do some research and find a table that will fit the saw.

                I noticed while thumbing through the new Amazon Tool catalog, that they are starting to sell accessories that actually say they fit Ridgid saws!

                  Kelly,
                  I am planning to put a router table in my right wing in time too. This would be the cat's meow for a cramped space shop...

                  I just got a new Amazon tool catalog myself the other day but hadn't noticed the Ridgid listings... What items particular did you notice...

                  To bad we aren’t better inventors... We would design and build a 12" or 14" x 27" tablesaw router table wing insert with plate that are reasonably priced and make a few bucks... I think there is a great demand for this...

                  I have seen a few but they are so expensive... It would be even better if Ridgid would make this available... (What do you think Jake???)

                    One was a saw stand pre-drilled for the Ridgid 2400...The Rousseau Mobile Max...I looked for the other one again, but couldn't find it.

                    I've been thinking about that insert. It could be made to accept a router plate and a router lift (two different models). I might just build one if nobody comes out with one by the time I get a router for the table.

                    How much room do you have with the new setup to the right of the webbed wing?

                      Kelly,
                      From the webbed wing to the end of the aluminum front rail measuring to the right I have about 19-3/8" of space. This is excluding the plastic end cap on the front rail...

                      There would be plenty of room for a nice router wing in this area...

                      One could run angle iron (2) under the right wing through to the router table to help carry the load while still bolting it to the end of the wing. This would also aid in supporting the front and rear fence rails...

                      I have a Freud FT2000 router that I plan to use in a table… At that time I will buy a much lighter router for hand held use… The Freud would be right at home under there…

                        The other was the Bench Dog left extension table...the picture shows it in the 3612...I suppose it could fit in the right slot, but for $299 who cares? That's way too much for a router table extension in my book...

                          I've got a Craftsman 75th anni model (same as the Ryobi 1.5hp model). I got it for routing deck railings, I want a PC 693 or equivalent for the table. I'm going to scour the catalogs for awhile and see what I can find before I start thinking about making one.

                            Kelly,
                            Is this the table you were talking about for $299.00: http://www.benchdog.com/Products/Protop/RT250.htm

                              That's the one....looks better in the bigger pic, but it's more expensive than a stand alone table.

                              I see now that it's mounted on a 2424 and that the left web table is missing.

                              Rockler has one that costs $99.99 without a fence (I want to use the fence I have with a sacrificial face on it)....

                              They're ALL backordered...that oughta tell us something!
