Im a new guy but here is my .02. The 2424 is a nice saw. Mine is smooth running the fence is extremely tight (will not budge) and accurate (within .015 using tape on rail). The motor is very strong even using the 110v in my garage and I think everyone likes the built in herculift wheels. I only have two things I think could be improved on; one is the table and wings finish could be smoother (rough machining)and two is the tilt lock. My lock seems to move the blade a little when tighted. I shopped around alot looking at jet, grizzly, crapsman, and delta and would buy the ridgid again in a minute.
God put me on earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right now Im so far behind I may never Die!
