new from ohio

hello to everyone.
i am new to this forum but looking forwarding to be on here. i just purchased the new ridgid r4511 table saw and so far so good. i have only run a small amount of walnut through it and i will say it cut clean and smooth. i am hoping to find where i can get a throat plate for my dado blades. so far no luck.

Welcome from West Michigan. Where in Ohio is Grove City?
I'm just a couple months into this forum & am finding the people here quite freindly & very knowledgeable. I'm sure you will enjoy it here too.
Your cutting one of my favorite woods, what are you making?
Any pic's?
Doesn't Ridgid offer various throat plates for your saw? Would the dado source have plates to match their blades?
My table saw is a 1960's vintage Rockwell / Delta I got from my Dad & I got dado blades & plates with it... don't know where my Dad got them.

grove city is on the outer loop of columbus.

i found the plate i needed online. Ridgid does have the plates i finaly found out but you have to order them through someone else. the cost would of been after shipping almost $70. The plate i ordered was through another place and i got it for a little over $35. im glad i kept looking.

no pics of the project yet still in the rough stages. im working o an enterainment center for a friend of mine.

nothing wrong with a rockwell saw vintage or not from what i have seen in the past. i will say so far the new ridgid granite top is very nice and at a good price to i think.

Welcome to the forum. I too am pretty new, but I like the wealth of knowledge here. I don't believe I have seen a question asked that did not recieve an answer.

Welcome to the forum, from northeast Ohio. I know where Grove City is. We're just a couple of hours north of you. Good luck with your new saw and don't forget to post some pics of your project as you go along and when it's finished.
