Default If I only had the room.

I would love to have this old radial arm saw. This is one of the good ones. I would get rid of my Dewalt miter saw in a heart beat. I just don't have the room. I am so sad!!!

Sometimes I miss my radial arm saw but it took up too much room.

Except for the space savings, does the CPMS offer any other advantage over a radial arm saw? Is there a reason to have both?

Ken; I did a lot of ripping on my old DeWalt RAS (which I still have)...but I know a lot of guys here hate ripping with them.
The only close call I had was with an old Craftsman RAS with a wobble dado blade.
Accuracy didn't come close to my current Bosch SCMS, or my old Makita chop saw for that matter.

I had a chance to pick one up at an auction a few years ago for $75 but like you say, it would have taken up too much room and I already had an SCMS which would do most of what the RAS is good for so it didn`t make sense.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
