  • Benchtop Radial Arm Saw

    I figured by now that the RS1000 10" Radial Arm Saw has been discontinued. About 10 years ago Craftsman had a portable benchtop 8" radial arm saw. Radial arm saws are the best for dado cutting and lap joints for "2x.." stock. Did anyone try cutting a dado lap joint on a 16 ft. 2x10 on a table saw?? Presently the Craftsman 10" Radial Arm Saw is the only one I can find for purchase for us retired homeowners. I would like to see Ridgid reintroduce a portable 8" Benchtop radial arm saw.

    Bubba,

    My guess it's probably not gonna happen. Since the new market of Sliding mitre saws, it looks like the trend is they are replacing many of the RAS.

      Sliding radial saws are really nice but what about depth of cut and ability to use dado sets?
