What are the benefits of having one of these in your shop?  I have a 12" dewalt sliding miter saw.  I have never used a radial arm saw before, so I thought I would ask.  Looks like mounting a dado blade you could use to make drawers and stuff pretty easy?  If you have a radial arm saw, what do you like using it for?  Thanks for any replies.

If you have an older older craftsman 10 RAS you should see this, you'll like it..

Hi Jerrod,  read my post under radial arm saw vs table saw for some information about radial saws.

Thanks for the link Ken, and thanks for the heads up Jay, headed there now to see what you put. 

Don't waste your money on anything other than a pre- 1960ish DeWalt radial arm saw. It will have a rounded top on the arm. 

If you want to buy new, the Original Saw Company manufactures new radial arm saws from the original DeWalt castings.

I have a small 9" MBF DeWalt RAS and love it. With a Forrest negative hook 8" blade, Forrest 8" Dado stack, and a Mr. Sawdust Table, the sky's the limit. if you have any other questions, please post.

Also, check out the rebuild process this guy went through on the same saw I have:

I found a recall saw for $100. Do you think that's a good deal?

I personally would stay away from it, and look for an old DeWalt, models MBF, GWI, MB, etc. Whatever older machine you're thinking about, check over on OWWM for manuals and such. There's a wealth of knowledge there.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
