Fence and Rails TS3650

So I got an awesome deal on a new in the box TS3650 the other day and I am going to put it together today. I have been reading where some people actually slid the rails over to the right to gain an extra 12". My question is, has anyone on this forum ever done this and if so, did you have to build some sort of extra support for the right side of the rails? Any feedback would be great. Thanks, Jeremy

You could do that but you'll probably have to do a little more than just move the rails over to the right. That saw already has the ability to rip 36" on the right side and comes with a rail stiffener to help keep the rails parallel to each other. I don't know for sure if this will be the case but if you move the rails and increase the capacity to 48" you just may have to add another stiffener. If so, that would be no big deal as that part could be ordered from RIDGID.

I decided to just install the rails per the instructions. I figured I would just wait and see how often I really need the extra ripping capacity. I didn't get to play with this saw yesterday after I got it all together, but after turning it on, man it made my older ridgid ts2412 sound like junk.
