I bought a Ward's 10" Radial Arm Saw. I believe the brake actuator needs realignment.
Can any of you tell me how to realign it?
Thx... ntxautoxr….

Sorry, I just let it stop on its own.Or use a scrap piece of 2"x2"x6",pull saw to you without pulling trigger. Your manual should have that info.

This is an excellent saw. I've had mine since 1969. Re the Key: remove the handle cover (two screws - I think), remove the locking mechanism - Now, it's just a metal counter weight that slides on a "pin". PUll it out, replace the cover and the saw will work. Remember, now you have no locking device and the trigger is totally active. All the "key" does is move the counter weight which allows the trigger to "pull".
Hope this works. PS I actually have two of these saws. My son has the original, and I purchased a second one. I still use it on an active basis, It's October 2018! I have had the motor rewound, but that's all.

Have the same radial saw, many years ago the trigger switched failed. I took it out and started look for a replacement. Found Black and Decker uses the same switch. With the internet today you may be able to search using the numbers off the switch to find a replacement.

Yes, that's what I did, removed that one part so I just pull the trigger. I had the key at some point, placed the main part(the round saucer push part had broke off)traced the key portion,IDK where that paper is, looks something like a "D" (side view; like a 3/8" to 1/2" wide "D" with a narrow piece on top that goes to end of the "D", top view |- ;the small piece that sticks out;is slightly lower than shown).

Bevel Question on the Power Kraft RAS

Hi: Last weekend I bought the Montgomery Wards RAS TPC 2610 C at an estate sale. It has the bevel angle gauge and it shows numbers beveling to both directions. I can get it to bevel only one direction. If I try the other way it only goes to like 10 degrees and then the blade rubs up on the carriage. Am I correct in thinking it is in fact not capable of being a dual bevel? Or am I missing something. I have cleaned it up and the previous owner had it in excellent condition. Any help will be much appreciated.

Even if they don't have the exact part, there might be one that will interchange.

I want to sell a working Montgomery Ward Power Kraft Tri Power Radial Arm Saw with Table. It was my Dad's who always maintained his tools. What is this worth? He also has routers, router bits, wood clamps, plainers, etc. Best forum for this?

Probably Craigslist for something that heavy and difficult to ship so buyer can pick it up, don't expect to get much for it, unfortunately used radial arms are not that valuable.

Quick check on my local Craigslist, various brands, price ranged from free to $175 for that size saw.

About 1971 I bought a 10 inch Craftsman RAS. A friend from work came over to my garage to "see" my saw as he had the Montgomery Ward model. The way that he raved and ooo-ah over my RAS made me feel as though I had a Rolls Royce RAS. It wasn't but that saw was one of the best that Emerson Electric (Craftsman) ever made.

I am what most people would call 'an RAS hater'. I typically refer to an RAS as an evil machine.

Let me put it this way, if you are a novice woodworker, sell the RAS while you have all ten. If you are an experienced woodworker and intend to use the saw for crosscutting only then just be as careful as heck when you use it.

For safety with any RAS you MUST draw a pencil line completely across the wood where you intend the cut to be. That way it is obvious where NOT to put your fingers. Don't believe me? Just ask the woodworker with less than 5 on his left hand.

There is one inherent flaw in all RAS with a swivelling yoke. The locking mechanism tends to fail. Some saws are worse than others. The symptom is when the yoke is swivelled for a rip cut and then back to crosscut. The blade is no longer square to the cut. My RAS was particularly bad and the kick backs in rip mode were brutal until I figured out what the cause was. And of course the correct part was unavailable.
