can I use the ridgid table saw table, with the Dewalt Mitre saw? are the stands interchangeable?


I need both a table saw and a Mitre saw, whats the best bang for my buck? I will be doing crown molding as well as doing my basement, and other cuts.
you mean the Ridgid mitre saw stand? I don't think they make a table saw stand. I have a 10" Makita slider on a Ridgid MSUV and it works great. it comes with removable brackets with bolts that should adjust to fit the Dewalt. but it weighs a lot and it's not that portable

If I were you I would get the 10" Makita and the 10" portable Ridgid table saw. $399 + $299 - $125 = $573

I'm trying to get either the DW718 or DWS780 with a stand. Some locations are still offering the DWS780 and 10" models with a free stand (Googled it and it seems the promo ended in October).

My ideal situation would be to get the DWS780 at IHL for $499 with a stand, but the promo isn't a DeWalt promo so IHL isn't doing it (asked already).

Second would be to PM IHL at HD to get the pair for $499, but I've been denied at HD trying to do this type of thing before (codes don't match etc), and I don't have a physical flyer any more for PM.

Third would be just to buy the pair at IHL for $499 + $150.

I think I'll just wait though, unless #2 happens. I guess I could drive to IHL to pick up a flyer and try PMing anyway, but I have little faith for that.

Maybe there'll be a huge sale over the holidays.

edit: please post if you're able to do it - I'll drive half-way across the country to get this deal :)

edit: Mind you, I have PM'ed at HD before, but the items needed to be completely identical. Reasons for getting my PMs denied:
the DW718 ($448) plus the DWX723 ($249) will put you over the $125 discount point, so $572 for both (that's if HD is including the stand in this promo)

Without having purchased the table saw yet, I would assume that the table saw stand would put the saw at a lower than ideal height. But it may be workable depending on how you plan to hold the mitre saw on the stand.

Hmmm... Thanks for that. If the DW718 is still $448 tomorrow (was a Black Friday special buy), then it'd end up at $400. The DWX723 is $160 at IHL, so $560. IHL is free shipping until the end of the year, and HD charges a total of ~$30 shipping on the DW718, so $600.

Or I could go for the DWS780 + DWX723 for $500 + $160 = $660 at IHL.

Argh, my wife thinks I'm insane for scouring the Internet, but I'd rather pay $500 than $572 than $660 to get what ends up being practically the same thing for me. The practical side of me says to just see what happens over the holidays... I won't need this guy until the spring anyway.

It's funny isn't it! I go out and spend whatever it takes at the grocery store, restaurant, bar et al. but when is come to buying some specific items (tools in particular) I'm bound and determined to get only the best price, even when I spend way to long trying to sort it all out!

No I meant this

this stand, would it work if I buy a Dewalt Mitre saw or not?

I like this stand because I can tuck it away, I don't have a ton of garage space. also that makita looks tiny, I am not into makita tools either, I don't find them as powerful as the rest.

I have the Ridgid table saw with the stand, and they are both bolted together. I have a Craftsman mitre saw on a Bosch mitre saw stand, and it is designed to take almost any mitre saw. The bolt holes on the Ridgid table saw stand are fixed, and would require you to build some sort of base plate to use your mitre saw with the table saw stand. Both the Bosch and Ridgid mitre saw stands also have expansion support arms for cuts of long lumber, which you won't get with a table saw stand. If you have an extra table saw stand, it might be worth a try to save a few bucks, but if you want to use both saws with one stand, it would take a lot longer to switch between saws than just setting up two folding sawhorses for your mitre saw. Better yet, get the ridgid mitre saw stand http://www.homedepot.ca/product/mitre-s ... cle/917619 or the bosch stand http://www.homedepot.ca/product/gravity ... and/920921 and you get the folding, rolling, tuck-away stand you want with a bunch of features designed for a mitre saw.

that table saw is bolted to the stand. what I usually do is lower my table saw blade, remove the fence and guards and put my mitre saw on top of the table saw. perfect height for using a mitre saw. put a peice of thin carpet or rubber mat on the table saw to prevent scratching and sliding around

Looking at the combo kits of power tools. Does anyone know if these get discounted after Christmas or is this the best time to buy?

I'm wondering if the this deal can be stacked with the Rona 15% back in gift cards ( http://forums.redflagdeals.com/rona-dec ... ds-1265649 )

I have heard that when Rona does this promo, HD will normally just give 15% off the purchase, rather than giving 15% value in gift cards for future purchase. I am interested to find out if one can buy the Ridgid drill/driver for $179 - 15% ($26.85) = 152.15 before tax...then $152.15- $25 (Ultimate Tool Event) = 127.15 before tax. That would be a deal!

It is worth a try.

Last year I picked up my Dewalt 12V MAX drill/driver cordless set. I managed to score a HD Xmas package price + a 20% Rona weekend Discount. I brougt in the newspaper with the Rona 20% discount for tools.

This is the time to buy. (And always have 90 return, if you manage a score something better on boxing day ... this is a BIG IF.)

Also, for Xmas bundles, they can sell out well before Xmas. I remember they sold out quickly of the Milwaukee 12V cordless Drill/Driver/Multi-Tool for $199. Especially, when these extra 10%-20% discounts are popping up.
