If the holes don't allow the trunnions to move--that clamp is only going to bend something---not a good solution--
Ream out the holes or get yourself a Grizzly---those folks do care about the customer---Mike----
You are right. I called Ridgid today and they said the trunnion mounting holes should have < 1/16" of play for adjustment. Since my saw is out over 1/8" I can't fix it without filing the holes. He did offer to send me a new trunnion but that sounds like a lot of work.
Two bad saws in a row has soured me on the R4512. I am going to look for a different brand of saw. I'll make a new thread, I really want a mobile base, and that seems to be an option for some of the other saw brands. The built-in caster kit was a big selling point for me on the Ridgid saw.
