Posted on Is it insane to put a 15" blade on my 12" radial arm saw?

My dad’s RAS would choak itself and give up the ghost if it tried that, especially if it was tried in one pass. Then, my dad would kill me, if I didn’t get killed in the process.

I doubt your RAS will have the HP for it, which is why it is 12” in the first place.

If I were to try it, I would do it in two or more
passes. But at that point, you might as well use a regular blade and run two passes, top and bottom.

Come to think of it, what’s wrong with doing that? I do it all the time on my table saw.
