Well, even tho' the NEW SHO.... er, PATIO is still being fitted, the exodus of tooling is well underway! I've had an old Craftsman RAS (one of the recall ones) under wraps for some time... I would like to put in to use beneath the lumber rack for rough cuts, saving my GOOD saw (Bosch 12" CSMS) for the fine work...
My question is this... I have several sets of the craftsman TS/RAS molding heads with the 3 interchangable cutters... Is it me or does using a molding head on a RAS seem uniquely dangerous? And if it is okay, what precautions should I take. It seems that light cuts, having a FIRM grip on the saw handle and keeping one's own bad self WELL out of the line of fire would be a given.
Since Sears says the cutter head is for use on a RAS, It got me to thinking.... I'd appreciate tips from anyone that has done this set-up, lived to tell about it, and can still count to 10.
