George, I inherited my Dad's Craftsman radial saws. He got the oldest one back in the early 60's. He rigged up an 8' table for it. He used it to rip miles of paneling. Sometime around 1980 he got a new one. We set that one up with a 12' table. We set it up to crosscut cutting towards the fence rather than pulling the saw back like they come set up from the factory. They cut better and safer pushing the saw away from you (like you would with a circular saw) rather than pulling it back. Anyway, with the 12' table, and the fence set back the radial saw is way more useful than they come set up from the factory. The only drawback is the big table is a handy place to set stuff on rather than putting it away.
I did pick up a like new new saw like Dad's old one at an auction recently for $5. I bought it to use the adjustable column on an english wheel I plan to build. I'll use some of the leftover parts to restore Dad's old saw.
