I found a used Craftsman 10” radial arm saw yesterday that spoke to me, and asked me to bring it home. The gentleman I bought it from had just inherited a newer one with a lot of bells and whistles on it, so I took his old one off his hands for $100.00. I’ve spent a couple of hours today setting it up, and have a number of little adjustments left to get it working the way I think I want, and just playing with cutting with it.
This is the first one I’ve really used, so I have a bit of a learning curve to figure things out, but that is part of the fun. I have a lot of memories of the one my dad had back in the 50’s, before he died. I was 6 when he died, and she sold it to a neighbor before we moved into town off our farm.
