    Great review and telling it like it is πŸ™‚
    A comment on table flatness and blade to mitre slot would have been nice, only one mitre slot a bit of a let down.. as is the sliding mitre tool. As for the fence, on my current saw I have always been in the habit of pushing the front guide piece so that it runs parallel to the front of the table leaving the end of the fence free to find it’s own place, if the fence is set up square to start with (dust free and dry lubricant) – it’s a reliable method of keeping the fence parallel to the blade. I’m about to purchase this πŸ™‚

    Great review and tutorial, exactly what I was looking for after purchasing this table saw. Although I did but the corded version

  3. Anekdotin on October 29, 2023 at 10:44 pm

    I bought this. Engine died after 3 uses. Ryobi customer service after 3 hour wait told me to pound sand

    I think this would be great for being somewhere out in the bush type area where your building a treehouse or tiny house and need some cuts with a table saw, I have a reg table saw I never knew there were battery saws this is great, I will deff pick this up for projects in the bush!

    Great video, thank you

    Would a non hp 4.0ah work here?

    Great review. I already had this saw and I could not agree more. As home DIYer and beginner wood worker, I like this saw for another reason, limited power options in my garage. I have been warned about using extension cords and putting too many tools on the standard outlet, so be able to use HP batteries is really important. Now I can plug my heater in during the winter without popping a breaker when I power up the saw and shop vac at the same time. I was a little concerned that there was only one t-track for the cross cut sled I was going to build, but I think it will work anyhow. That mitre guage is trash, but I heard that’s the case with all out of the box table saw mitre guages.

    Is it quieter than the DeWalt?

  9. Ace Caldwell on October 29, 2023 at 10:56 pm

    That gate ryobi uses on this saw is intentionally made that way for doing rips that’s gain or lose a few fraction of an inch not all rips are the same on both ends

    I must have gotten a lemon because mine will not even cut through a piece of 1x white wood without bogging down & shutting off

  12. IT Works Websites on October 29, 2023 at 11:09 pm

    Thank you for this very detailed video. For a lot of us, this is the very first table saw and I appreciate the detailed explanations on how to set this thing up!! Best review Ive seen so far!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    A riving knife isn’t there to keep a cut straight. It’s purpose is to keep the two pieces of the cut separated to help prevent binding on the back of the blade (another source of kickback).

    Sheet goods typically aren’t going to benefit from the riving knife, except that it holds the blade guard. This is mainly an issue ripping boards, where the grain is sometimes under tension and wants to warp toward the cut as you cut it, binding the back of the blade and kicking toward the user. The riving knife keeps the two cut pieces separated at least a few inches beyond the blade, preventing the wood from binding on the blade due to tension.

    If this is a concern, be wary of your blade’s kerf size, or width of the cutting teeth. If the kerf is much wider than the thickness of the riving knife, it’s not going to be as effective at preventing kickback

    Nice review here. I just impulse bought this at my local home depot on clearance for 200 bucks. The kit! Not a ryobi fan here. At all. BUT, I’ve had a plan to build my own cordless table saw for awhile now. So, I’ll rip the guts from this saw and use them witha more precision built table, fence, and miter gauge/sled. I hope to male it fit into a large makita makpac systainer. Silly idea? I think not! Festool be darned!

    As someone that works overall in design in the product development community theres a huge push for less and less metal to be a sign of a quality product. With even benefits to companies that use recycled plastics to make there products. General rule of a great product is now the tension, torsion, shear of plastics used and its rigidity.

    The saw is about the fence and its quality. Before anyone considers Ryobi (and most of Ridgit) table junk seriously, go to HD and play with dispay units. Try to lock the fence – you can easily lock it with +/-15′ angle – it’s just horrible.

    We recently lumbered a 36" maple, a 36" white ash, and a 32" pecan. After drying, we tried planing with a Rigid (Home Depot) 13" planer with 2 HSS knives https://www.youtube.com/post/UgkxIzvvTi3_Qc8JnVdYYRJCvuoDC4QjTzeL . This job was clearly too much for that machine. The pecan was particularly difficult, due to heavy mineral deposits, and a sharp pair of HSS knives would be consumed by a mere 3 boards. We were also having lots of problems from chip bruising, due to poor dust collection. The shavings came off like straw and jammed in the 4" hose.We bought the DW735 simply to be able to run carbide blades, which worked brilliantly for the pecan. However, we found it to be a much, MUCH nicer machine. It was far more rigid than the "Rigid" planer, and far more accurate as well. But what I liked most about it was the dust feed. This machine has its own blower, which shreds the "straw" like shavings as they come off the cutting head and helps boost the shavings into the dust collection system. No more clogs! It’s also nicely sealed so that the internals stay quite clean. This is just a well tempered machine that’s a delight to use. It literally cut the labor in half. Just another example of getting what you pay for.

    Yeah, the fence is the no-go for me. Nice review! If this had a good fence, I would put this on my short list!

  19. logan decker on October 29, 2023 at 11:19 pm

    Picked one of these up yesterday for 50% off brand new at my local Home Depot! Can’t beat it for $200 bucks very happy with it!

  20. Floyd Thomas on October 29, 2023 at 11:21 pm

    Thanks for the great review. I just ordered this. Question…? Any recommendations for a better miter gauge and rip fence?
