Not sure who is reading this at this point because it’s been a while since I have been out in the shop due to the freezing michigan weather. Also the fact that my barn doesn’t have heat other than in my man cave which I do not woodwork in.
Anywho, today I went and picked up an older Dewalt “Powershop” radial arm saw that my uncle Tim gave me. He bought it from a garage sale a while back and just doesn’t have the use for it anymore, so he gave it to pack rat tool junkie me…..
Regardless, this is a nice machine for being as old as it is and will give me a nice addition to being able to rip wood and use in place of what would be my crappy sliding compound mitersaw. The thing purrs like a kitten, and there is barely any noise when it runs other than the motor. It sounds great.
Anywho, give me your thoughts, and let me know what you think. I haven’t used one in my shop yet, but I have used one before. I plan to redo my station and replace my crap sliding compound miter with this. I will eventually get a new one of those too, but i digress.
