Welcome to the RIDGID fold and many years of happy sawing to you!
P.S. If you have any questions on use or techinques, be sure to check here first.
and thanks for the welcome...
hmmmmmm how do i turn this thin on? oh yea i know hold blade with the left hand and pull switch with right hand... yea yea thats it...:P
this thing cuts sooooo sweet...
i was making rased panel doors yesterday and it did the cuts perfict and smooth.... my brothers roybi burned the wood and the fence would not square up so the wood would bind up..
what a differance between the boy toys and the man toys....
im glad i went with ridgid.... i thing it has more bang for the buck...
now jake is there any out feed tables for this saw and proper rail extintions so i cam put the rails back in place.... i slide the rails to the right side of the saw so i can get a 38 inch rip..
WOOD Magazine ran an article maybe a year ago on making an outfeed table. They used a TS2424 for the example machine.
I run my fence with zero capacity left of blade. It's a left-tilting saw, I see no need for ripping under the blade. ;)
Brian, here is the link for that outfeed table, downloadable no less. http://woodstore.woodmall.com/tabouttab.html
I made one of these about 4 or 5 months ago for my TS2424. One of the best add-ons I've ever come up with. Makes ripping long boards a breeze when no helper around.
For what it's worth, I used melamine for the table and edge banded it with that plasticky stuff that you route a slot and then pound in.
thanks for the link to the site for the out feed table...
i just built one today and it is nice...
i made the 1st part of the table 49 inches by 24 inches and then the fold down part of the table i made 49 inches by 35.5 inches... this gave me a total of 7+ feet inchuding the saw [img]smile.gif[/img] [img]smile.gif[/img] [img]smile.gif[/img]
