(This saw has been discontinued by Ridgid and replaced with model R4120.) High points: A retractable pin offers bevel stops at 33.9° and 45°, as well as angles up to 48°.…
An open-leg metal stand, not shown, comes with the saw. Low points: The 45° miter stops proved inaccurate even after we calibrated the 90° stop dead-on. The burlap-like dust bag allows fine dust to escape through its pores. The laser shines 1/16" to the left of the cut, making it tough to rely on it for accuracy. More points: The miter scale is segmented in half-degrees for extra accuracy, but the marks are nearly impossible to see inside the cursor window. The horizontal hold-in clamp has a half-nut design that allows for quick adjustments, but when tightened even with little pressure it causes workpieces to lift off the table. In addition to its three-year warranty, Ridgid offers a lifetime service agreement offering free replacement parts.
