Is there supposed to be a rubber gasket or seal between the top and bottom? Mine doesn't have one.

Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

The gap between the lid (top) and the drum (bottom) will create a tight vacuum seal during operation. We do not have a rubber gasket available but you can use a weather stripping if you like a tight fit during non-operation.

If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to call us at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or you may send your email to info@ridgidvacs.com.

how do you load this tool

it is the 18 volt lithium- ion angled finish nailer 18 volt cordless
manual does not show
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

The written instructions for loading the R250AF18 are provided on page #10 of the owner’s manual, and the diagrams showing that procedure are located on page #13, which is near the very back of the tri-lingual owner’s manual.

You can also find them below:

LOADING THE TOOL WITH NAILS
-Remove the battery pack into the tool.
-With the nose of the tool pointed away from you, feed a strip of nails into the magazine. Be sure the nails are pointed downward and at the angle shown.
WARNING:
Keep the tool pointed away from yourself and others when loading nails. Failure to do so could result in possible serious personal injury.
-Slide the nail strip as far forward in the magazine as possible.
-Slide the pusher all the way to the rear of the magazine. Release the pusher and allow it to push the nails up to the driving mechanism. The pusher will stop when it rests against the end of the nail strip.
NOTE: Do not allow the pusher to snap back into place.
WARNING:
Use only the nails recommended for use with this tool. The use of any other nails can result in tool malfunction, leading to serious injuries.
WARNING:
Never load nails with the work piece contact or trigger activated. Doing so could result in possible serious personal injury.

Is the 4ah 20v battery needed to achieve the rated 300ft/lbs? or could you use the 2ah 20v battery and get the same power?

Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

No, the R86010B impact wrench can achieve its maximum output torque using any of the RIDGID 18V batteries; it does not need a 4.0 Ah battery to produce its maximum capable output torque.

Vacuum attachment hose size?

What vacuum hose diameter does this sander hook up to? Is it the same size as the random orbital 5 inch Ridgid sander?
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

The RIDGID R2740 belt sander has a 1-1/4” dust bag connector port, and the R2600 5” sander has the same size connection port inside its dust bag screw on connection fitting.

How Long of a battery life does it have?

If i use my 4ah batteries how long will the battery last on average?
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

There is not average run time or life expectancy quote we provide on cordless power tool batteries, due to the many usage and care related variable that can affect both, performance and life.

LSA

Are these batteries eligible for the lifetime service agreement?
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

No, individual battery purchases carry a three year warranty only, based on the purchase receipt. They do not qualify for the LSA coverage.

Just bought. A few problems.

One of the extension tables had several pretty deep scratches in it when I took it out of the box. It does not look like this saw was bought and returned because all the parts that were in plastic sleeves were still intact. Aggravating and disappointing, but not my major concern.

I have spent several hours trying to get the fence to slide freely. From the left side of the table until the right indicator reaches about the 9 inch mark, it slides fine. When the right indicator gets to the 9 inch mark, it becomes very difficult to move and when it does move, it makes a groaning noise. I have loosened and tightened and took apart and re-installed and tightened and loosened, etc and can NOT get anything to change. I have checked the rails for level, made sure the extensions are flush. The distance from the rail to the table top is the same at the front and the back of the fence and does not fluctuate. I am at my wits' end as I can not think of anything else to try. Also, my fence will not "lift off" of the rails like I have seen others say. It has to be slid on from the end of the rails.

Has anyone had these issues? If so, any tips would be helpful. Thanks
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

The difficulty that you are describing is not something we have received similar reports of from other R4512 owners, so there is not any type of fix to advise of. You might check the fences parts and adjustments. It should lift right off and sit right down on the rails when its lock handle is in the unlocked position. Otherwise, our recommendation, if you cannot resolve it with rail and fence adjustments, would be to have it checked by a local authorized warranty service provider to determine the cause and a correction.

Multitool blade for cutting tiles

Is there a specific blade I need to get, on top of what comes in this kit, that should be used for cutting tiles? Haven't been able to find any so not sure if these standard ones can be used for that or maybe I'm not looking in the right place.

thank you
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

RIDGID does not make or offer a blade specifically for clean cutting tile with your JobMax multi-tool, and there is not one on the market that can be specifically advised of. The RIDGID #A24JM12 blade kit, sold through Home Depot does include 2 blades for cutting through grout, and possibly could bused for rough cutting of small tile.
