YOUR SHOP EQUIPMENTS IS A STATE OF THE ART BUT I FIND YOUR SHOP TOO SMALL FOR A MASS PRODUCTION OF WOODWORKS PRODUCTS.WE HAVE ALSO A WOODWORKING SHOP HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES AND WE ARE USING THE OLD MACHINES NOT THE ONE THAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR SHOP. I ADMIRE IT AND HOPING THAT WE CAN HAVE THAT KIND OF MACHINE TOO IN THE NEAR FUTURE.WE HAVE A TALENTED WOODWORKERS BUT WE DONT HAVE ENOUGHT MACHINES TO COPE UP WITH THE DEMAND OF OUR CUSTOMERS.

What can you do with a radial arm saw that you can't do with a table or miter saw?


Posted By: Ken     [08/22/2009]
With the proper attachments, many things, such as:
planing lumber with a SafTPlaner attachment; using a sanding disk instead of a saw blade (with a shop built table) thus having a disk sander; attaching drum sanders to the drive shaft and thus having a drum sander; there used to be attachments for routers and belt sanders to use with the radial arm saw, though those are now rare and hard to find. Of course, one can rip, crosscut, do simple and compound mitres, create coves, and use molding heads and dado blades also.

The downside is that there are more adjustments to make to keep the machine tuned up, and the table and fence are sacrificial.

In any case, I would like to have a table saw also.

Very interesting. Thanks for the input. Do you use any software programs to design your work? Which would you recommend? I started toying with Google Sketchup free version and actually created a kitchen cabinet project from scratch. Turned out wonderful!


Posted By: Kenneth Ewald, Sr.     [12/10/2009]
I also use Google Sketchup.

I admire your dedication to being a woodworker and selfemployed. I also recently finished painting a set of patio furniture for one of my shutter customers. I actually made a good profit from doing this, and really made my customer happy. These are interesting times and I believe you will do well. Good luck
