I've had one of these Craftsman 7 1/2" radial arm miter saws around for a long time. I've had offers if I wanted to sell, but I just can't get rid of it. It seems to fill the gap around the shop for a combination of crosscuts and miter cuts, when you don't want to use a full size RAS. I'm using it now to do some home renovation of moulding work in combination with my CMS. It's light enough to carry around. The only thing it won't do is raise and lower the arm.

I was wondering how many have seen one of these better yet anyone else here have one?

Whats the max cut on it cabinetman?

I have a 10" RAS thats just taking up room, but I can't seem to let go.

Factory setup is about a 10" crosscut...plenty for moulding, base, caseing, and crown. You could set the fence back some and maybe pick up another inch or so. I use the 7.25", 5/8" arbor sawblades, carbide tipped, for CS's. It does miter and bevel to 48 deg.
