Which Saw

In reply to Power Tools Radial Arm vs Table Saw by Bob on May 12th, 1998 07:57 PM [Go to top of thread]

My vote goes for the table saw.

I have a table saw, a band saw, a 'chop' saw(power miter, no compound),
a radial arm saw, and various other power saws (worm drive, reciprocating saw,
and jigsaw). I use all of them, but I use the table saw, band saw, and chop saw
way more than I do the radial arm saw. There are some jobs the RAS does very well
(e.g. compound miters), but it's much harder to get accurate results consistently.

If someone broke into my shop and stole the RAS, I wouldn't miss it... except that
I'd get back the space it takes up :-).
