I'm an IDIOT... Please help


Just got an awesome Craftsman Radial Arm Saw Model # 11329411, for next to nothing. I was in the process of cleaning it and pulled the arm lock mechanism out...How do you get it back in and does the end catch under the lock? it looks like it has been pressing the lock in and not pulling it out. Nevertheless its the only thing I haven't got working yet and this may be why. Please help.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Roy, Not sure of your problem.
Is This your Saw?

Can you post a Pic?

Thats the one Bob, thanks for responding. In the first diagram parts list, I pulled out number 24 and I think that part #25 should have gone over the end of the shaft catch. I can't get it #25 to budge, thats the lock release, right.

I don't think he was commenting on your saw. I believe it is all radial arm saws.
Because of the blade rotation, the saw head can start powering its way toward you, cutting more aggressively than you want it to. That can lead to a lot of accidents.
You only have one hand to hold your material, because the other hand has to control and pull the saw head.

It doesn't seem to make any of the most dangerous lists anymore, but that is probably because so few people own one.

It isn't unsafe, that was your word. They can be used safely. But read up on how to use one and give it a lot of respect. Don't get careless around one.

Thanks for the advice I'll keep it in mind, this is my second one Iv'e owned and the older one is awaiting a switch that I burned out due to over use. No close calls yet.


Back to the problem I'm having, how does the lock and turn screw work on my new (old) saw. How can I free it up, does it move in and out.

I can't answer your question, never pulled mine out.
But here is a "Field Service Manual" for the older 10" RAS.http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/222/1082.pdf

Starting at the very bottom of page 19, is "Problem Radial arm wont lock between index position". Perhaps reading that procedure (or others) will answer your question.
