    Delta Super 900 radial arm saw

    I have found three of these from $145-$200.

    It is listed as early 1960's and 9". The angle adjusts independently of the height mechanism. Sounds like a good idea.

    Anyone have one or had experience with one?

    What say you guru's?

    The other one was pulled from Craigslist by Monday. I think these are bit more robust! Probably overkill.

    Also, I have a schematic to build the automatic motor mover like the one on YouTube posted last week. WooHoo!

    Ain't Google wonderful?

    I did, but what brand/model is it? I got a great post back in another forum about the Super 900. Highly recommended.

    Question...if your going to use the saw how available are the 9" blades. We had to really search to find a 9" blade for my Dad's CMS.

    Those have great reputations and are very versatile machines. By all means looks at those. Of course, condition is everything!

    There are times I wish I had one instead of my DeWalt.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
