RESTORING GRAMPA'S OLD SEARS & ROEBUCK RADIAL ARM SAW

This Sears Radial Arm Saw was made available from 1966-1968. This 120 VAC model featured a large one horsepower induction motor and built in mechanical brake. It was also able to work vertically as a drill, a milling unit, and as a router. All of the original DADO blades and dovetail attachments are still in their original boxes and packages. The saw was taken out of use and stored outside in an open sided shed for nearly 15 years. Dampness took it's toll on the wood and metal of the frame as it rusted up from where it sat working at one time. The boom and slider were not moving any longer.

Shown below is the entire sequence going from the abandoned condition of long term storage back to full functionality on saw benches just like when it was new...




Here it is as we begin. Totally rusted blade and unit. Base is corroded and rusted, as pictures below show..

Here we can see the recessed hardware which is rusted onto the framework. USA Fluid is applied over the hardware and a short time later it's tapped with a hammer lightly. Additional pictures below detail this process.

Detail of removal of the hardware which was frozen to the metal. The screws are tapped with a hammer over and over and then the area is wire brushed. The rust eats the USA Fluid and is exfoliated from the surface, then it breaks down into a burnishing paste as the brushing continues as can be seen below.

After brushing the surfaces are wiped revealing fresh burnished metal hardware again. Rust on the surfaces has been removed. ALSO, the hardware will stay in the shop for the next decade with no further rusting since the Unlimited StrongArm Preservative coating will remain on ALL surfaces where it's applied.

Brushing the shaft threads and blade will make it easy to replace and restore the shaft to pristine condition.

The little recessed hardware screws are now gripped with a channelock while a socket is fitted over the nut - and with no more than normal light twisting pressure the hardware now comes apart just as easily as when it was new.

AND There's No Tread damage when USA Fluid is used to remove totally corroded hardware which otherwise would have to be ground or sawed off. These screws will clean up and get re used as shown below...

A close up of the bolts and threads which were rusted through the rotting flake board and into the frame of the saw. Removed with NO Thread damage whatsoever. Further brushing will clean the rest of the threads and render them usable and they will remain corrosion free in storage until being reused.

Here the treated surfaces and the rest of the saw are given a fresh

Painting the upper and lower parts of the base. Surfaces have been USA Fluid treated, Brushed and Wiped, and now paint is applied. Improved adhesion will occur with Unlimited StrongArm under the surfaces.

The surface is no longer rusted. The discoloration of the metal as it's brushed and burnished back to raw iron is a paint ready inert surface that will maintain the coating and have protection of the metal under the paint for upcoming decades in the shop.

Here's the base of the saw after the paint is applied. The unit will now sit out on the pallet in the heat of the sun and the paint will become baked into the surface.

This table base for the saw is replicated and built exactly to match the original one that Grampa built with the use of the saw when he originally bought it back in 1966.

Here's the old man's radial arm saw all Finished Painted and with all the moving parts treated with USA Fluid and rolling good as new. It's mounted up on it's support table and has a Formica deck with side tables built and lined up to it. Total length across the saw table and sides is now 12 feet.
That's perfect for cutting long pieces or ripping lengths or running a lengthwise dado groove.
