I like how she links to a “similar” saw that is a 14” 3HP model.

Not much. There are more RAS’s on craigslist than almost any other power tool. This is probably a good one but does anyone use these any more?

I know where a Craftsman sits right now, same size and power, for $35.

Radial arm saws all over down here for $200 or less (many under $100).. and I wouldn’t spend more than that on one. If you want more bang for your buck, find an older Craftsman RAS that is on the recall list (get the model number from the seller if not already provided).. buy the saw, fill out the form at the web site and get a brand new table, handle and guard for free in the mail a few weeks later.

@William if it is a recall saw turn it in for the $100 bounty, they sned you the shipping box and everything. I have never bought one seperately but I have bought them when buying other machines/tools and make 60-70 bucks for my hour or less of time, I just do it to make the tools I do get seem cheaper.

Wonder what year that was built. It looks like an antique by the blade cover.

She shurly doesn’t know how to valuate it.

Probably a 10”. Those Delta turret saws are good machines,
even the smaller ones. I have an older one and the sucker
is built like a tank.

I’d take a Delta turrent saw over any other small radial
arm saw except a Dewalt.

Still, the price is too high.
