Topic tags/keywords: ras radial arm saw redial arm saws r1350

I’ve searched to see if anyone had already posted info specific to this RAS, but came up blank. So my first question is, does anyone have one of these units. These saws were build in the mid 60’s. This is one of many items I now own since my dad’s death.

It seems to be in great shape. At this time I’ve just begun to rebuild the table. I’ve done lots of internet searches and have found some great info (and yes I’m going to order MR Sawdust’s book – How to Master the Radial Arm Saw) In the mean time if anyone has some tips, that would be great. I did find a great pdf http://www.woodcentral.com/bparticles/dewaltrebuild.pdf. This is very good, but a little over my head in some areas and without photos, I’ve got to guess and what the author is expecting me to do.

I’m just now getting into woodworking so please spell things out for me. At this time, I spend more time looking up woodworking terms then I do using my tools. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Harold,

The 1350 is one of the better one’s. Here’s a good site http://forums.delphiforums.com/n/main.asp?webtag=woodbutcher&nav=messages&start=Start+Reading+%3E%3E&prettyurl=%2Fwoodbutcher%2Fmessages%2F%3Fstart%3DStart%2BReading%2B%253E%253E. I’ll just get this out of the way, while you can rip with it cross cuts and miters are were it excels.

Hope this helps.
Greg

Spindle – thanks for the link. WOW that forum offers a lot – a tad overload!! Seems like everyone suggest Mr Sawdust book for RAS. Guess I’ll have to get one.
