TS2400-1 Portable Tablesaw Review
This portable tablesaw from Ridgid has an excellent miter gauge and a great fence adjustment
This is a solid, all-around portable tablesaw. It has very good blade adjustment, an excellent miter gauge, and the best fence adjustment of any saw we tested. Its onboard storage also is top-notch. The stand is sturdy and folds and unfolds in two motions. Friction from its rubber feet make it a little difficult to slide in and out of a truck bed. The blade guard is easy to remove and install by turning a knob at the back of the saw. But the guard doesn’t ride up and down with the blade, so it may be less effective at reducing kickback. Also, the table extends over the on/off switch, putting it out of view and hard to get to in a hurry. Because the sliding side-support lever lifts up, it’s convenient, but unless you remember to slide the fence onto the extension table first, you’ll smack the lever with the fence. The measuring scale is an unrolling tape measure that seems likely to break. This was by far the heaviest saw we tested.
