    I remember when a neighbor bought one that looked just like that, brand new. We were in awe! That is a very good price, I would say.

    My dad had this same one in his shop when he had a construction company...hope the seller didn't forget a 0 in that price. That's what they go for around here anyway...Good luck!

    Oh My Gosh. I haven't seen one of those for something like 50 years. They were a great radial arm saw. The price is fantastic---the heck with the table; you can make a better one inexpensively.

    I really remember the first time I used one. I put the board on the table, lined it up, turned on the machine, pulled it towards me, AND IT ATTACKED ME!
    That thing accelerated 0 to 100 in a nanosecond heading right for me all on its own.

    Once you know it wants to do that it is fine. However, with no one warning me, it was a major startlement.

    Enjoy it,

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
