Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible tool, waste of money This saw is the biggest tool purchase regret for me in the past 20 years. The blades use a proprietary 7/16 arbor. None of my local stores ever have the replacement blades on stock and standard 3/8 arbor blades won’t work. Burned through the blade that was provided with the tool on the very first project and havent been able to find a replacement in four months. Worked well for the few days I was able to but its just a dutt collector now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance in a compact package Having read several reviews prior to purchasing I began looking for a wood cutting blade and discovered what other reviewers have stated, they are hard to find. That said, the 3” Dremel carbide wood cutting blade works very well with the 7/16” arbor adapter which is included with the saw. Also several people said the angle of the guard is such that when making a long cut, the battery hits the arterial being cut and forces the blade to lift affecting the already limited cutting depth. That proved to be true for my saw too, but I noticed 4 small Torx screws securing a plate surrounding the arbor. I loosened the screws and it allowed me to index the blade guard to prevent the battery from contacting the material being cut. Oddly, two of the four screws accepted a T-10 Torx bit but the other two required a T-9 Torx bit. I like the saw a lot but would prefer a tool-free ‘table’ height adjustment with a larger base platform, but otherwise it has pretty impressive performance for such a small tool.

Can I get a sanding blade for back cutting trim to use for coping?

I called Rigid customer service and was told Rigid does not make a wood blade but the person directed me to Amazon and said the KENT 3” Round HSS M2 Blade for hard wood, metal, plastic will work. $12 on Amazon

What is the maximum depth of cut, and can this tool reasonably be used to cut various bar stock?

Asked by: Mike
After calling Ridgid's 1-800 customer service line, I was informed that the maximum cut depth is 0.64 inches. Given this exceeds the average cut depth of 0.5 inches of most non-wood related cuts (e.g. sheet materials, bar stock, tile, bolts/fasteners, pipe and tubing wall, etc.) this could be a very handy tool. That said, I am disappointed that the RIDGID Canada Team passed the buck on this question. Their response was unprofessional and came across as demeaning and insulting by suggesting that they could not be bothered to provide fundamental consumer information for their own product.

Are there saw blades for this? To cut plywood, maybe 3/4" pine etc?

Asked by: Woodcraft By Steve
Hi Wood By Steve, Yes there are additional saws that can be purchased for several different applications. Unfortunately RIDGID's blades are available yet. However Milwaukee sells their own 3-inch blades that are a direct fit with this RIDGID product. Please review the link attached. Thanks for reaching out, RIDGID Canada. https://www.homedepot.ca/product/milwaukee-tool-3-inch-carbide-abrasive-blade/1001214809
