As if my poor work area wasn’t crowded too much already, today I bought myself an older but low time and very well maintained radial arm saw. It’s a sears, about 15 or so years old, and once we tried it out, the seller removed the blade as a backup for his table saw as the price was too good to include it, and anyway it was a gift from his dad.

The reason I’m so happy about more overcrowding in my little shop?

It was only forty bucks!

Pardon me, but I’ve been walking on air so much I’ve dusted the ceiling with my hair. :)

Good find. I had a Sears 10” Radial Arm 25 years ago. Take the time to build a good table on each side.I liked the one I had very much (Looked dangerous, if used properly it was okay) I Sold it when I moved out East.
Cutting Power for $40., can’t complain about that.

Good deal!

$40 is a steal. I am pretty sure space will be found.

As I said, the make is Sears.

No idea about anything else as it is still in the car. My wife ended up in hospital yesterday and I haven’t had time to even think about anything else since.

Tiny, Check to see if your new saw falls under the Craftsman Radial Arm Saw Recall. They’ll send you some updated parts (maybe a new table) or $100 to disable it. -Jack
