Ridgid R4512 Table Saw - The Unboxing

To back track just a bit, here are some photos of what came inside the box of the Ridgid R4512 table saw. First, there was Styrofoam that contained all the hardware and accessories. Everything was arranged neatly and survived shipping well.

Here are all the hardware parts and accessories, including the fence, the miter guage and the blade guard.

Next came the saw itself, the wings, the dust chute, the sides of the stand and all the parts for the fence guides.

This is looking into the belly of the beast. Everything survived well -- no cracked cast iron. Also, everything is metal -- no plastic gears anywhere to be found. (You can also see the casters for the mobile base.)

Next I'll describe moving the saw to the basement and installing the wings and rails. Stay tuned.

The Dust Chute or Hood for under the saw looks like a Dust Monkey table saw dust hood. As far as I know, Dust Monkey rither no longer makes it, or is no longer around.
