dooma flatchie: Scare the crap out of me watching that blade with no guard. Oh yeah, clever
Ric Ornelas: Great idea.
Larry Taylor: Good job. I think I will copy & thanks for a great idea.
Chuck St. Louis: Nice idea! At 51 seconds is a perfect example of how to cut your arm off.
Machine running and arm across cutting plane. I've done the same thing
whoops. Thanks for sharing. Chuck
hatcherb: True. I don't often make angled cuts with this saw. I do those on the table
saw. I'm in the set it at 90 and don't move it camp wrt the ras. However, I
have made some either by clamping the workpiece to the saw table or by
adding angled blocks to the fence.
hatcherb: Ray, I thought I demonstrated a dado cut in the video. Provided you cut
your dados on the pull stroke, most of the chips will be collected by the
low profile hood. The blade width doesn't matter.
mototree: do you have a vacuum hooked up to it on the underside could i get some
pictures of the underside? nice design!
Milord: Nice set up, but I'd like to see you practicing better safety with your
alw6445: i cant beleive youput your hand in front of the blade, if it caught it
would cut your hand off.
Ray Witmer: I use my radial arm saw similarly on a bench with a compound miter saw
sharing the same fence to the right. I use my radial arm only for dadoes.
Do you think this would still work? There is no table kerf because the dado
does not go clear through the board. Plus it is obviously much wider than a
mushtaq Ansari: Great job.. Do you have the plan for the Vacuum
MelbourneAlan: great set up. have to agree about doing dangerous practaces but they are
your fingers so il leave it at that. love the inginuity in the design. . i
have a trough like that under my table saw . with two angled pieces . all
the dust falls down into the trough adn is sucked away. the angled floor
helps concentrate the suction as it reduces along the slot. it also keeps
the dust in the path of the air flow. i would love to see more of your shop
and other cool things you have come up with
hatcherb: Ted, thanks for the compliment. I haven't changed anything and the short
fence hasn't been an issue yet. The base is pretty simple. I boxed in the
cavity below the blade, added a chip ramp, and a 6" port on the bottom
rear. There's an additional hole in the top under the triangular piece for
above fence collection. I'm unsure if the model year. Probably 1960's. -Ben
hatcherb: The vacuum is a Delta 50-760 1.5 hp dust collector.
hatcherb: I've posted a second video that shows the inside and underside details. The
concept is pretty simple. A kerf goes through the top and the area under
that kerf is more or less sealed and the bottom slopes toward the back
where the dust port is located.
imtediam: Awesome job! I've never seen anything like it. It's sleek and unobtrusive.
I'd say it's the Ferrari of RAS dust collection apparati. It's perfect for
my needs. I'm sure I have all the materials in my scrap bin, too. Have you
thought of any more design upgrades besides the taller fence. What does the
underside dust collection setup look like? Thanks, Hatch! Ted
imtediam: What year was your RAS manufactured, Hatch? I've never seen that make
Angelo Pacifici: great setup, can you share some more details on how the slit is setup and
the vacuum draw.
brandon spun: Great setup. I would suggest not leaving that remote control on your dust
robsgaragewoodworkin: Very nice! Great idea! You are only making straight cuts so I'll have to
make modifications for mine...
Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
