Topic tags/keywords: ras deal question

Found this delta today. 1.5hp that is 110/220v swappable. I just bought my first table saw, but thought this might be a good deal. Any thoughts or pointers on what to check it for?

How much?

I just bought a Sears 10” Radial Arm saw for $25 and it was a great deal.

I guess I should also mention that I just bought http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00921807000P?prdNo=3&blockNo=3&blockType=G3 yesterday. I don’t even know that I need a RAS as of yet, but if I could use it for similar projects and it is a good deal, I’d hate to miss out on it.

What would you do with the bucks if you passed this up? The RAS is the least precise of all stationary power tools, and perhaps the most dangerous—the spinning blade wants to come right toward you.

A RAS also, if you build a bench that allows material to go both directions, has a whopper of a footprint. I’d cling to my lucre unless I had a specific and unique use for it.
