nice to see the oldtools being used,the ras has a bad rap as being unsafe, get the book from mr.sawdust,i have a 1958 dewalt 1030 ras which can use 8” or 10” blades, the trick is to see if the bearings are good and you have complete guard set up on the saw ,i rip on mine with no problem, the most important thing is you know how to set the tool up and know fully what the saw can do.make sure you set the tool up right and you will have no problems with it.also wolf machine can help you with parts for it enjoy any other tool be safe and it will work out great.shinju
