Original Saw Company offers three types of operation for Radial Arm Saws.


  • Manual Operation – Standard Radial Arm Saws are powered by the operator.  The operator pulls the handle and the blade moves forward radially to make the cut.  Manual operation is a standard feature on all Contractor and Heavy Duty Series Radial Arm Saws.
  • Hand Crank Operation – Hand Cranks are used instead of Manual Operation for better carriage control.  This operation is ideal for cutting large timbers, metal cutting applications, and heavy dado work.  Hand Crank Operation is available on 22.5” Super Duty Radial Arm Saws and all Metal Cutting Radial Arm Saws.
  • Semi-Automatic Operation – Add an electronic powered cross feed to a Radial Arm Saw for semi-automatic operation.  Push the button on the front side of the Radial Arm Saw and the blade will cut through the material and automatically return to the home position.  This operation is currently available on all Super Duty Series models and Metal Cutting Radial Arm Saws.


Our team has years of cutting experience.  Contact us for recommendations about clamping, feeding material, and complete automatic sawing packages. 

Table variety is the key when it comes to 16″ Radial Arm Saws.  Choose from the following:

  1. Oversized MDF Table with manual clamps – This is the standard table for Radial Arm Saws. The MDF table holds aluminum extruded t-slot tracks. The tracks contain the manual clamps for ease of cutting.
  2. ECS (Enclosed Cutting Surface) Table (for Model 3541 only) – For enhanced safety, choose an ECS Table. Original Saw Company manufactures the ECS Table from formed steel. It replaces the standard MDF table top and bolts to the saw frame. The ECS Table features the following:
    • A Laser blade path indicator lights the cut line.
    • HDPE side clamps secure the material and safely enclose the cutting area. Enclosing the cutting area also helps with saw dust collection.
    • The standard control panel includes a start/stop switch and an E-Stop switch. Upgrade the control panel and install an hour meter and a limiting access keypad.  
    • 2 HDPE blade inserts surround the blade and provide clearance to limit blade contact with the steel table.
    • This table option includes an integrated 4″ dust collection hook-up.


Blades are sold separately from the saw.
