I had a hankering for a large sized radial arm saw, and some wide white oak. Oregon here i come.
A 16" Dewalt GE radial arm saw popped up on my radar, meticulously restored by the previous owner Doug Westlind. If the Yates snowflake isn't an indication, his shop is amazing, stocked with every dream machine i could ever want. I wish i had more time, but road trips of this nature are a series of time accumulating choices. So it was off to the next stop to get some wide Oregon white Oak planks.
The 2000km and 39 hour trip went well, a lot of driving but sometimes when you need something travel is a necessity.
Here's the Dewalt safe and sound at its new home needing a table and a confident operator; it's a very intimidating type of saw. But it'll be nice to have a trusty crosscut saw, my Makita mitre was never used for finish cuts and it's capacity is now dwarfed.
