I am with MedicKen,,,avoid ripping with the radial arm saw. There are much safer ways of getting the job done. The key to getting good results from the RAS ( aside from getting it set up properly) is to use a blade that is made for it. The following link covers blade selection and you will see that they make blades for RAS only and for table saw only. In your stack of old blades there is a good chance that some of those blades were not made for the RAS. I am not promoting Delta blades just using the information as a reference.
I hope this helps.
