  • RS1000 RAS Accessories

    I just bought a new RAS, I found in HD a paper listing available accessories for it. One thing peaked my interest but I can't find an info, that is the AC2050 Carriage return. There is no info on the website about this.
    Also, how does the AC1099 Dust Collector work? is it worth the $35.00?
    Is there any plans to make a "control cut" accessory (a geared motor with a cable attached to carriage to limit the speed the cariage moves), I know that some older Sears saw's and some Ryobi's had this.

    Thanks, Ken

    You can find info on the AC1099 by going to "HOME" the "PRODUCTS" and enter the part number. I don't have this product, but I have the Sears kit which appears to be the same thing (at least they both contain the same items). I have a Delta RAS and it has helped capture the dust that shoots off the back of the blade while doing cross cuts. I don't use my RAS for ripping, so I can't comment on how effective it is for that function.

    As for the cable to regulate the speed of the cuts, I wouldn't want that on my RAS. As long as you use a negative hook blade, you shouldn't have any trouble controlling the cut speed.

      The carriage return is supplied for shops that fall under OSHA regulations.
