1957 Dewalt - $350 Radial Arm saw.

Can you guys tell me about this saw? I think some of these old saws were really good and some not so good.

I had a 1957 Dewalt RAS but mine was a 16 inch, those saws are like a tank, they just keep on keeping on. Good price on it also. They are a little hard to set up but once set they will stay that way unless you move it to another location.

If it were closer to me I'd grab it in a heart beat, Don. I think Frank Howarth has one like it, as well.

My first thought on anything that old- parts? What is the cost compared to a new one?
