A quick note for those who might not be aware of this..
According to the Syracuse, NY Post-Standard on July 18, about 145,000 Ryobi
radial arm saws "are being recalled because cracks in the plastic housing
the motor can cause the blade to fall out while the saw is in use. The
recall includes all RA200 and RA202 radial arm saws, which are bench-top
models with 8-1/4 inch blades. A plate behind the operator grip says 'Ryobi
8-1/4" ' and either 'RA200' or 'RA202.' The saws were sold at home centers
and hardware stores between 1886 and 1997. For information, visit
