I think is the kind of dilemma a LumberJock likes to have.
A friend of mine is re-arranging his shop to make room for a new lathe and bigger bandsaw. He decided to get rid of some older tools that he gets little or no use out of, including his DeWalt Radial Arm Saw. He thinks it was built in the late 50’s, but that is just a WAG.
He has offered to give it to me … all I have to do is haul it away. He says it is in working condition, but the table is pretty badly chewed up.
So, you’re asking “What’s the dilemma?”
The problem is, I know next to nothing about RAS tools, having only seen them on TV and in woodworking videos. I haven’t gone out to see it yet, so I don’t have model number or any details on condition.
So I am wondering what kind of grief I might be letting myself in for.
