The TS2424 was the 2nd version of Ridgid's contractor saws....the TS2412 was first, followed the 2424, then the 3612, 3650 (made by TTI/Ryobi)/3660, then the R4511 (made by Steel City/Orion). The 2424 was made in the USA by Emerson vs made in China (by Dayton AFAIK), had an outboard belt drive motor vs the inboard motor on the R4512, and had webbed cast iron wings vs steel. The 2424 also had an older style splitter vs a riving knife. The fences are somewhat similar, but are not the same.
