I Just picked up a DeWalt 740 RAS for $25 and its in amazing shape. Everything works , there is no play or wobble at the end of the sliding assembly and the blade guard in intact.
I have been saving up to buy a King 10” sliding compound miter saw (http://www.kingcanada.com/Products.htm?CD=81&ID=20360) when I ran into this guy, Figured it might take its place or I could re-use the heavy duty base if it came to that.
I have never owned or used a RAS although I am not new to woodworking. I have two table saws and a non sliding compound miter saw but is there anything in particular I should know about? I have spent the evening watching safety videos on YouTube.
My intended use for the saw will be the odd long miter but 95% would be as a strait cross cutting station for cabinetry.
Would I be happy with this saw or should I clean it up and re-list it? What would the going price be for one in great shape?
