  • Ts3650

    Well I was given a TS3650 and it is missing quite a bit and was hoping someone had some old original parts pieces from a upgrade they did.

    I am looking for the following:

    1. fence and rail system
    2. wrenches for changing blade

    Thank you in advance

    The arbor nut on my TS3612 was 1-1/16" so if the TS3650 is the same then all you need is a combination wrench of that size and a block of wood to change blades. As far as the fence/rail system goes, you could put almost any after market fence/rail system on that saw without too much trouble. So, you don't have to limit yourself to the one that originally came with that saw. Here's a couple that you might want to consider, or

      I was recently given a Ridgid TS3650. I finished installing and setting up everything but several pieces are missing. I've checked a lot of sites (Ereplacement, Ridgid, EBay, etc.) - either the parts are unavailable or ridiculously expensive. Anyone have any ideas where I can find these parts or suitable replacements:

      1) Blade Guard Assembly TH1004
      2) Belt Guard Assembly TH1011
      3) Back End Caps TH100052 & TH100053
      4) Front End Caps TH100097 & TH100098

        Those pieces will be tough to come by I think, because they are all unique to a very few models of RIDGID Table saws.

        I bought my TS-3650 in 2003 and had it for 7 years.

        If the end caps are the ones on the ends of the rails they are pretty much cosmetic but they do keep you from getting snagged on the ends of the rails. You can rip your clothing or worse get hung up on a rail while performing some operation with the saw running and maybe get injured. Outside chance but its still a possibility. You could probably make something out of wood that would work. One of the gang here who has that saw might post some photos that you could work from, or use the images you see on the online part sites if they have a photo posted.

        Belt guard you could make from sheet metal, the original was plastic IIRC. It was not a complicated shape as I recall. The harder part to replicate would be the brackets to mount the belt and the blade guard.

        If you look through some of the TS-3650 threads you'll probably find some photos that show them both.
        Look in here, I posted a bunch of photos of my saw back then in this thread.

        The only part that I have from my 3650 is the spreader rod that fits between the right end of the rails. I removed it when I installed my router table extension and forgot to give it to the guy who bought the saw from me. I also have a couple zero clearance inserts and maybe a jig or two I made that are particular to that saw.

        I have one other part that I am putting on eBay, and that is a replacement arbor. Some of the early saws had a deep gullet at the arbor flange and this was a problem when using a dado stack as the blades did not all sit at the same height, so RIDGID sent out replacement arbors to anyone who asked for them. I got mine but didn't install it right away. So I am going to list it on eBay soon.

          You might consider this for a replacement blade guard assembly. An overarm guard is nice to have and the price on this one is not bad. But I can not say if its any good, never seen one and don't know anyone who has one.

            There are a number of parts on eBay right now that are labeled as for the TS-3650.

            Blade wrench
            Arbor nut
            Fence locking lever from a couple sources (reproductions, probably 3D printed but if they work who cares)
