I just purchased the Ridgid miter saw stand and love it. However, it will not fold more than 1/3 of the way before stopping. After I assembled the unit, it closed properly with no issues. I mounted my Ridgid saw and attempted to fold the stand. No luck. The stand would only fold 1/3 of the way and stopped. I removed the saw thinking that I may have created the problem when I mounted the saw but the stand still would not close. When I look under the unit the spring on the seems to be fully compressed at the 1/3 point. ??? What is puzzling is that I have not touched the area where the stand folds so I'm not sure why the problem cropped up after the unit had been closed or folded once.
Any guidance or help you can provide would be appreciated.
