OK George, now you have insulted my '70's era Craftsman Saw! Mower blades indeed!

Actually I almost let this saw go for $200.00. I was going to replace it and to get one with the cast iron parts was going to top $1,000.

I devoted a few evenings to the project. Parts are still available (for the most part) and when I was done I built a little infeed table.

Very accurate to do many different cuts and way handier than those aluminum lawn chairs with a circular saw taped on!

Actually, that sounds like a pretty good idea. I usually just stick the blades in the vice and go at them with a 4 1/2" grinder.

Your way sounds much more accurate.

Brad, sorry for insulting your craftsman radial arm. I bought one in the 70's and a friend gave me a second one. The only thing I use them for, besides a grinder, is cross cutting aluminum soffets. If I want to get a clean precise cross cut, up to 6 inches, I'll use a compound miter. I have 2 of them on a compound miter table with extensions and wheels. I've never been able to put any wood working tool in a stationary place like you.

All my wood working tools are on wheels, bandsaw, 13 inch wood planner, jointer, table saw, and yes even my radial arm. I love my radial arm so much, about 20 years ago, I purchased a diamond blade to cut brick. Sprayed water on the blade to keep the dust down. I put 20,000 brick on my house. Only needed to cut a few around windows and air vents.

I'll never buy another radial arm saw again. Go to sears and where I live, you would have to special order one, if you can still get one.

Please enjoy yours, sorry for the insult.
