I lost all of my tool in hurricane Katrina, I am starting to replace them. I had a table saw before and my father in law had a radial arm saw. I just figured I could do more with it. however I am open to all suggestions.
I think you will find about a 99.9% vote for the table saw for general woodworking duties when compared to the radial arm. I am not knocking radials, they have their place and can perform some specialized duties better than a TS, but they are few, and those are usually in repetitive cut-off type production uses as I stated.
