I picked up a radial arm saw at a yard sale last summer. I know many woodworkers don't like them. I tuned it up and put a $70 Rigid 90 tooth blade on it. It cuts beautiful. The only problem when it contacts the wood it wants to grab and shoot across the table at you. I just figured it was an unavoidable part of the design. Maybe this is common knowledge to you veteran woodworkers but I just learned about hook angle.The angle of the took referenced off the arbor. It you have 0% or as close as possible to that, it won't grab. Now my only problem is I have a 6 month old like new $70 blade. Hopefully this was helpful to someone.
