So a guy I know tends to help people clean out garrages and do whatever… well yesterday, he had a radial arm on the back of his truck… He was just about to scrap it. that is unless I wanted it.
So the story goes, he flipped the switch, hit the reset couldn’t get even a hum out of the motor. Well I say sure, I’ll take it…

Take the thing off it’s base load it into the back of my truck and bring it home… I set it up in the driveway, since I don’t know if it even works… Take a power cord out to it, plug it in, hit the reset, and hit the on switch…. and on she turns… I wonder if he tried the breaker :X

So I end up with a craftsman radial arm saw model 113.19775 completely and totally free…
