Ridgid 12" sliding miter saw - This saw works great EXCEPT it screams on start up. A loud screeching sound. I have tried to fix it. It still makes the sound, but cuts perfectly. I am guessing it is the brake? The laser needs a battery I can throw one on.

This is my personal saw, not purchased somewhere else used.

I would prefer not to ship only so the person can check the saw out first as I have a 100% guarantee and paying shipping two ways makes no sense.

Other than the noise it makes I do guarantee the saw works and cuts great. There is a 100.00 Forrest Chopmaster blade on the saw. It is dirty and probably would not need a sharpening for awhile. I'll try to clean up the blade. Its never been sharpened as it is not that old, like I said just dirty. With the blade this is not a bad deal, especially if you can pick up.

I would ship at my cost making nothing on the shipping or packing, I would imagine at least 50.00 maybe 75.00 for shipping.

I have a custom made zero clearance insert in the saw.

200.00 with free pick up.

I paid 599.99 new. I think you can get them for 499.99(with the stock blade) new now, I am not sure.

This might be perfect as a site saw for the crew or as your second saw. If you have no miter box this will be perfect for a fist timer. The saw is nice and better than the DeWalt model, IMHO. The dust collection is not good, but not many sliders are good at a collection and effectively I am only charging 100.00 when you factor in the Forrest blade.

Of course the Makita, Kapex and probably the Milwaukee are better saws, but at this price with the Forrest blade I do believe it is a good deal. I will not go any lower.

15 Amp motor, heavy duty motor powers through the most difficult cuts. Adjustable Exactline laser alignment system allows operator to easily align blade with the cut line. Dual bevel and extended miter range -0? to 47? dual bevel and 0? to 61? miter capacities accommodate a wide variety of cuts with crown molding detent stops. Miter detent release and bypass thumb wheel for quick engagement and release of miter detent stops.

I still use the saw almost everyday and have my new Milwaukee right next to it.

It would be a bear to ship probably around 80.00.
