|OMG! I have one of those radial-arm saws. It has a more square shape to the arm, though. I think it's from the late 50's. I have the anti-kickback pawl and the folding shelf assembly that goes on the front. Original, rubber dust deflector, too. It has an 8" blade, and I replaced the switch about 20 years ago. My friend's father was the original owner. He gave it to me before he passed away, over 25 years ago. It's a prised possession and I've kept it intact in honor of the good man who passed it down to me. Most likely, it'll still be functional, when I pass it to the next deserving owner in about 20 years, I hope. Years ago, radial arm saws fell out of favor. Now, it's cordless, compound miter saws with lasers and dust-collection that actually sucks up the dust. Thanks for sharing the pic.
