    RAS and Shroud

    Got out to pickup my Dad's old RAS.


    Here's the shroud he built for it.


    There's a chute on the back side that drops down to a box setting on the frame below.



    Also picked up his old TS, which I dropped off at my nephews tonight.

    Your dad doesn't have any use for them anymore?

    He's been storing them in my sister's basement for the past 10 years when they sold their house and went RVing full time. My BIL already has a RAS (or two), so I offered to get them out of her basement and he'll be able to use it over at my place when they stay here during the summer.

    My nephew didn't have a TS, so he's a step up now.

    Cool. Both tools are on to their second life.

    The RAS looks like it's in great shape. Nice addition to the shop.

    i would say that table saw is in fine shape as well the table shines in poor light.. that says something about how it was taken care of..and those old craftsman TSaws were solid tools
