Had this radial arm saw about 10 years, after I got it used from my friend who ran out of room for it. Haven’t used it for about a year & a half. It woulnd’t cut 90 degrees anymore & the table wasn’t flat & really chewed up. Finally got around to cleaning the saw up & making a new table. Table is made of 2 layers of 5/8” MDF, with Poplar trim. Fence is 3/4 MDF. Just a plain table, no add ons ( unusual for me ). My favorite part is that the rear table is assembled entirely with glued up cutoffs from the front table. Adjusted the table to the blade, rather than adjusting the blade. The table can be adjusted further when necessary. Only use the saw for 90 degee cuts & perhaps dados.
