    I am unable to elevate (or lower) the arm of my Craftsman 10 inch Radial Arm Saw, Model 315.220100. I bought it used just over ten years ago, and it was a year old at that time.

    Just bought a nice saw. Worked fine on 220v. Got home, read the book and changed the two wires called for but the saw just hums. With help the blade will turn but stalls when I try to cut anything. To put 220v in my shop is way to expensive. Need second breaker box. suggestions?

    Folks, I've noticed alot of people on this forum have their Radial Arm Saws dialed in at 90 degrees. Obviously, this makes crosscutting at 90 degrees a snap. I understand the premise of not moving the saw out of that 90 degree setting, and angling the work to the blade, instead of the blade...

    Folks, I recently lubricated my RAS, which it desperately needed. This included oiling the column (with PB) and the crankshaft case with lithium grease. It also involved oiling the inside of the column. I'm in the process of getting it ready, and I thought things were good to go. When I went...

    Hi- I was an avid woodworker but have been forced to focus on other things for a while. In the meantime, I've noticed that the swivel head on my radial arm saw will not turn I believe there is some rust on the gears.

Can anyone tell me which direction the teeth of the gears should be facing on the vertical column shaft. Or is anyone has pictures of their assembly that would be great. These parts...

    I'm new to this group and am looking forward to any advice that the more experienced can offer. Here's what I have . . . . . I was given this Craftsman Radial saw (113.197751) for FREE! The previous owner gave it to me because the blade wouldn't turn and he was figuring it would save him a...

    Hi: I've got a Craftsman 10" RAS that is about 20 years old. I used it extensively to help remodel my first house. It had digital read-out for measurements that worked poorly, so I tore that all out. I decided a few years ago to remove the stock table and replace it with a table of MDF about 16'...

    I was recently given an old 12'' craftsman radial arm saw. After taking it apart and cleaning everything out it worked great. The only problem is that it doesn't have a blade guard. I tried searching the sears parts site but couldn't find anything. Also i was looking for some different...
