A find

My neighbor came across this on a job he is doing.
He is a stone mason BTW. It was in an unfinished
dirt floor basement still in the original box.

Lots of rust and corrosion. Missing the front plate.
Screws were there, just no plate.

Blade did not rust, has some kind of wax on it.
Noncarbide.

The new owners said to throw all the stuff in the
basement in the dumpster.

The table fell apart. This is one from a local lumber
yard, they didn't know what it fit and gave it to me.

All the grease has turned to wax. I had the motor
bearing replace. The rest of the bearing I cleaned
and repacked.

Cleaned all the rust, primed and repainted. Cleaned
the crude off the aluminum parts.

Made the stand from junk around the shop.

Runs fine, have not cut anything yet, need to get
it all lined up since I had it completely apart.

The blade on it now is one I had laying around.

Total investment at this time is less than $30.

Hey BH,
Haven't heard from you for awhile. Looks like a pretty good find. Go through the setup and line everything up and you should have a nice saw. PS, don't forget the fence.

I see that has the excellent old style front crank to raise the housing. I like that so much better than having to reach way in back. Nice find, good cleanup job.

It came with the top. Just a piece of pressed board.
It will need to be ripped down a little and drilled and
such.

Spent the morning shimming and adjusting, should
be making dust in a couple hours.... More coffee!

Thanks for the comments.

Emerson Electric will send you a new blade guard, and new table as part of the Radial Arm Recall..

Just type "Radial Arm Recall" into Google for instructions....

I just got the same saw CL for $100.00.

The recall blade guard can be ordered online.

You need the model no and serial number from under the table on the left side of the saw base. 113.****** and ***XM***. It's free if your numbers are good. Or call
800-511-2628 with your info. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Thanks for the info. Will look into it tomorrow.

I spent a lot of time getting all the crude off
the guard and priming and painting it. Go figure?

I have it all lined up and it cuts great.

The wife ain't too happy, "You really need another
saw thing?" I have two table saws, three miter saws,
band saw, scroll saw and a dozen hand saws.

I just like to cut up a little now and then.

Ask the guy at Emerson and...

I bet he even has a manual for it. On the upratet thew had a few models that thy would pay you $100 to take the motor off and send it to them

Great find..

That saw was probably sold in the late eighties , and I believe is the model right before the point where Emerson added the lower guard...either that ..or it's the saw from the late seventies...in the early eighties Emerson redesigned the RAS, and had so much trouble with the new design, that they went back to the old design.
After that they had their tiff with Sears and lost the contract to Ryobi
This saw would also be the same as the Early 90s saw sold as Ridgid..
My repair kit had a new blade guard, and a complete table...
Emerson can also provide a manual, if you ask...

Thanks for all the info. The production date on the
motor is 3/86. So you are right on the money with
the time frame.

10/6/09

Called, they are shipping a new guard kit.

Thanks..

I feel like I am talking to myself??

Update on the recall.

I received the parts today. 9AM.

New guard, table, fence, handle, some hardware,
manual.

Three days isn't too bad??

Got some stuff just for use in commercial shops,
OSHA required.

I have it all installed, still need to do just a bit
of tweaking. Table is a hair high in the front.
I know how to adjust it now, makes it much simpler.

Thanks for the help.
