Did this video help you?

Ed Waggoner Sr. (Papatch): Nice video, good job.  Hey, it's great to see the safety Nazis are on the job leaving there "safety advice". 

Joe Balogh: Enjoyed your video, I just bought the same saw from a local school but the top was missing . could you please give me the dimensions of the the five pieces of mdf used to make the top Thank you Joe

justdafaks: Just saying they are machines and will never be 100 percent safe.

justdafaks: oh settle down, the mitre saw blade flexes, just like a table saw. if you require speed the radial arm saw is superior. And don't say the sliding compound mitre saw is any better because the size of stock you can use is dictated by the machine.

Tom Fusco: @Simon Asteroff how so?

Simon Asteroff: Yeah, the guy in this video will hurt himself one day. He is not being safe. In fact, this saw design is unsafe. he should be using a miter saw with a blade guard.

s37d: what advantage does ras have over miter saw

Pete Street: I have the same saw but the carriage does not have a smooth travel, it's a bit bumpy and this translates to a wobbly cut, not smooth to the touch and visibly not true. Any suggestions? Thanks. .

67tr876: @Samhotoscuf My teacher told me to use the wood as a push stick to push the cut part out.

steveho75: Tom how do i get a good dust collector suction from radial arm saw to dust collector? Steve

Camila Álvarez: yeah i used it ... (i have wood shop 3) im using the table saw in a couple of days

Tom Fusco: Diablo Blades, nice and sharp and do keep an edge for a long time, 80 bucks i think. Well worrh it.

Tom Fusco: Yes, and they also help align the fence to keep it at 90 degrees to the blade.

Tom Fusco: Thanks

Tom Fusco: naw, just keep your fingers away from the blade when its spinning.

Gonzalo Alvarez Falco: scary saw xD

avantisprod: believe it or not, this simple video really helps

drail80s: Im wondering what those knobs in the front of the ras one on each side. Are they to tighten up the rear table when replacing the fence?? Thanks

jws54: true true true, the way you left a cleanout notch at the bottom of your stop is so important. I can't believe the blade you have on that saw, a million teeth, and red colored, must cost a fortune. Thanks for showing a basic procedure, that is where problems are abated
