I Still have all Ten but it just takes a second to change that.

Hey Tom I consider radial arm saws dangerous like all saw but the RAS has a head that tends to wobble a bit from side to side so if you change your pressure while saw it can grab your material and throw it at you.
Because of that same wobble I always discourage my students from using a RAS to rip with because the material can kick back or raise up off the table and cause big time injuries. It can be used to rip but only if clamped down with feather boards, but if you have a table saw use it instead.
