Reader Jay writes: “I recently bought a Craftsman radial-arm saw from a friend, but it came without a table top. I built my own, but after a couple of uses, I think I might have missed something. Do any of you Toolmongers have a design — or just photos — of a good radial-arm saw table top? Just FYI, my saw is probably from 1976.”
Jay, the photo above is of my father’s old Craftsman radial arm saw, but as you can see I got it without a top, too. Doh! Most of the saw tables I’ve seen have been really simple, so my gut says that you might have an issue with how you’re using it. Google, however, turns up tons of pictures. And Craftsman (one of our current sponsors) shows a table on the site for their new 10″ Laser Trac saw.
But let’s let the real experts answer. Toolmongers? What say you?
