A good friend of mine has a Sears 10" Radial Arm Saw that he does not use and I have a computer that I don't use.. so we are thinking of trading even up. I had some questions about using a RAS...
I have the TS3650 (which I like alot) but I want to use it primarily for ripping. I want to build some kitchen cabinets. I was going to use the TS to rip the carcase sides and I was thinking of using the RAS for cross cutting the carcase pieces. I figured this would be a convenient and efficient way to build the carcases (and I would not have to make a very large cross-cut sled)
I see some opinions on the net that RAS are not very accurate, but I am wondering if it is because the saw was not set up right or it is not accurate by a design flaw in the saw (or it is just the way it is..)
