Offer: Radial arm table saw (South Downers Grove) Withdrawn - This was freecycled to me a long time ago and it's time to pass it on. Very old, but usable radial arm table saw. There is one issue; the top on/off switch is missing so you'll need to turn it on/off with a remote switch. I kept it plugged in to a heavy duty power strip and controlled it that way. Very heavy, bring help. Two person minimum. Does not break down easily, bring a large vehicle. We are having a free/ donations only garage sale today (Friday 6/5) where you can pick it up. I'll withdraw this post as soon as I know it's gone. No holds. 1161 Valley View Dr. Downers Grove, IL
