I just bought the Ridgid R4141, and it is awsome. cast iron base, large clamp and fence. lifetime maintinance parts ( brushes, switches ect... ). $179 from the HD..little research shows the same company that makes Ridgid and Ryobi for the HD makes a lot of power tools for the Sears Craftsmen brand, and chop saws being some of those tools..
I was looking for the Milwaukee 6180-20 but no local supplier had it. it too had a cast base.. The DeWalt that is currently available is pretty much a joke compared to the Ridgid, and $20 more..

|abigassbowtie||I have a rigid 14" its great i looked in to alot of them and decided the rigid for a few reasons it does angle cuts both directions and has the nice horizontal handle like the dewalt and has a heavy duty base that will not flop around if you let go of the handle while in the down position and has lots of power|

|matt167||I was looking at new 1's yesterday.. out of any of them, I would go for the Milwaukee or the better HF 1. they look identical. the DeWalt I looked at was nice, but there was no line to line up for angle cuts, and for $200, that was unacceptable to me. the cheaper Milwaukee or HF had the line to line up for angle cuts|
