I am thinking of buying an older Radial Arm Saw. I build furniture and am not a carpenter. Other than cut-off work, is there any real value in a RAS for a furniture maker?
By the time I build extension tables for it, it will take up quite a bit of space. Cost is not the question.
My questions to other furniture makers are..........
Is it worth the space it takes up?
Will I wonder how I ever got along without it?
How accurate are the cuts in regards to play in the Arm?
How well does it serve for dados.
I can see where it might eliminate a few jigs.
Thanks in advance
