Question by maddog4696: Why is it not a good idea to rip on a radial arm saw?
This has been a question on my mind for a while now, I have heard from everybody I know that work in wood shops to not rip on a radial arm saw because it is not a good idea, even though you can it would be safer to rip on a table saw. Because its gets annoying ripping on a table saw, having to set up the rip fence every time. Anyone have a idea why it is not a good idea to rip on radial arm saw?
Answer by hoosierman
Well… the wood wants to buck away from the saw blade and you have no real control over the saw since the blade is above the piece you are cutting. Also, a friend of mine cut his thumb wide open on a table saw once when he tried to push the wood through the fence area. If you slip and fall into a radial saw blade you will be cut to shreds. It is just way too dangerous to rip on a radial arm saw. I just put up with the multiple fence adjustments and use push sticks on MY table saw and I still have all my fingers!
