Comments:
My dad and I went to Sears on a Friday night early in 1966 to look at this saw that was "on sale". I was barely 12 years old and had already tasted sawdust. Salesman smelled blood and offered to "throw in" the accessory kit which included the molding head set, the molding head guard, the dado set, the little red RAS how-to book (which I plan to put into pdf format to get posted for those interested in getting a copy), and the mitering clamp. He bit and next thing I know we are on the way home with a box of these accessories and the very large box containing the saw. Mom wasn't real happy, but kept her peace. We set this saw up in the workshop with a monsterous bench. I was forbidden to use it when Dad wasn't home. I made careful note where he put the key which was supposed to prevent unauthorized use of the saw. One day I was working on something in the workshop and decided I need the saw, so I got the key from his "hiding place" and began making sawdust. He came home early from work that day and I was busted (and so was my backside!) Only time this saw ever caused any injury. Saw has sat unused since dad passed more than 20 years ago. I rotated the blade July 11, 2009 to see if it was free to spin, which it was. Plugged her in, crossed my fingers, and hit the switch. She spun up like she was used just yesterday. Got goose bumps hearing that old familiar sound. No plans to repaint, just finish cleaning up, lubricating, and put back into service. Anyone interested in copy of manual, drop me an email and I will gladly provide a pdf of the Owner's manual (sent in to OWWM, but that takes a while to get posted)
