Failing that, can I bypass the switch or relocate it somehow? The second Sears Radial arm saw I bought did not have a reset switch on it (it is older).

Stopped radial arm saw


I'm glad they kept this thread open since I just encountered the same problem in July 2013. I let the motor cool down then pressed the reset button with no results. After doing this a number of times I finally went to this chat room and found the answer right there. I went back out, pressed and held the reset button quite hard until I heard a second click and the saw came right back on. Thanks (you think as a Sears retired Craftsman power tool buyer I would have figured that out).

Glad you found the answer here on one of our older threads.

This thread has proven to be useful yet again. Two months ago I bogged my saw down doing something I shouldn't have. I haven't needed it since because all of my projects have been small. I have a bigger project coming up where I'm building my little girl practically a complete play kitchen with sink, stove, fridge, and pantry. I will be needing this saw. Read the thread - pressed hard until the second click - saw is up and running again!! Thanks guys!

This is another reason I like to see the resolution to problems.

I would like to take this thread into a different direction. I have heard nothing but bad things about RAS. I was thinking of purchasing one last year, and was told by many that its a dangerous tool. These days with sliding miter saws and the like, I dont know why people would need one.

They will accept Dado blades which makes them handy for cutting rabbits and dados.

A table saw does as well. No moving blade on those

The other name for 'em is "Radical Harm Saw"

It's a little exciting when you get your setup a little wrong and it decides to dig in, kick, self-feed, and generally just come at you with malicious intent. I've never seen it as any more or less dangerous than a table saw, though.
