" Table saws ARE available in right or left tilt...but not both."
A great solution! Buy a pair of table saws.
I would choose to reposition the piece of wood.
If all table saws had the ability to tilt in both directions, it would do the job. Retract the blade, reverse its angle, and raise it.
That is the whole point of my story.
I was cutting on my table saw and I realized that it was impossible for me to continue my project. I finished the job with a jig saw.
My upside down jig saw table was based on my extremely powerful Milwaukee demolition saw. It could cut wood and steel with opposite angle bevels.
Stay on topic Stu...we're talking about your radial arm.
The up and down cutting motion of a jig saw is much safer than a rotating blade table saw.
Band saws and a jig saws make perfect blind cuts.
(Blind cuts can be made on a table saw with some effort.)
A demo saw with the right blade could cut through almost anything.
Instant blade change is really convenient.
I offered my design to some major companies without success.
Why am I not surprised by that?
At the same time I invented a double ended, double edged demolition saw blade that offered 4 cutting edges.
Can you see it?
Four cutting edges will not render the saw blade a "single point tool". It will NOT be able to cut sideways....so I suppose I don't "see it".
Continue your flight of fancy without me.
