Listed below are some common questions we receive about our cutting solutions.
The Dust Shroud connects to the back of the frame behind the saw blade and collects dust when the saw makes straight and bevel cuts. In fact, this dust shroud has a 4″ dust port connection for easy attachment to many dust collection systems. During cutting, a laser cut grid covers the port and prevents large pieces of debris from entering the dust collection system.
All wood cutting radial arm saws and beam saws can be equipped with a dust shroud. On a radial arm saw, the dust shroud mounts at the rear of the frame and behind the blade. Beam saw dust shrouds mount inside the frame.
The Rip Conversion Kit contains attachments and guarding to allow 12”, 14” and 16” wood cutting saw models to rip cut. First, the motor swivels parallel with the fence. Next, it enables wide boards to be cut in narrower pieces.
Wood cutting radial arm saws and beam saws use Mist Coolant Systems. They provide lubrication when cutting non-ferrous material like aluminum and, most importantly, extend the life of the blade. Consequently, if a Mist Coolant System isn’t used, aluminum will fill the gullets of the blade and cause inefficient cutting.
The Mist Coolant System works with a siphon delivery system. It contains a 7” flexible plastic nozzle, sight gauge and independent air and coolant controls for a variable spray delivery. Additionally, compressed air and 110 volt power are required for use .
Pneumatic clamps hold the Mist Coolant System in place in order to it make easy to attach or remove the system. Mist Coolant Systems are an optional feature on all Metal Cutting Super Duty Series Saws and Beam Saws.
Pneumatic clamping creates opportunities to make your cutting more efficient. Two or four cylinder systems allow you to customize how you want to hold the material down. Original Saw’s Pneumatic Clamping System is a wood and metal cutting accessory.
It integrates with our Heavy Duty Series, Super Duty Wood Cutting Series, Super Duty Metal Cutting Series and Beam Saws to allow for a variety of cutting and clamping options.

Yes! The length of cut or carriage travel is adjusted by the cam stops. The Electronic Powered Cross Feed provides the optimum feed rate for the material to be cut. Most importantly, it assures uniform cuts and maximum utilization of the blade for efficient cutting.
This Electronic Powered Cross Feed is only available at the time of purchase of a Radial Arm Saw. Contact customer service for assistance when choosing an Electronic Powered Cross Feed.
