Looks like I am in the minority of the Sears RAS fans. I had one for a year or two and was glad to be rid of it. It was a 1964 model that I bought at a garage sale from the original owner's son. It even came with the owner's manual. I paid $35 and that included delivery to my house. Though I tried, I never could get the thing to cut a perfect 90 degrees. I would align it and then as soon as I tightened up the bolt it would force its way back to being slightly off the 90 degree mark. I resold it at our own garage sale for $35 with a new (cheap) carbide blade. I was glad to be rid of it. Besides never being able to get an accurate cut, the highly exposed blade always gave me a strong sense of impending danger. I much prefer my 3650.
