So while it’s not 100% completes as there is still a lot of Rust on the base of the De Walt radial arm Saw. There is still loads of fasteners that need to be re-blued due to Surface rust which I will fix with my Electrolytic rust Remover, I think it looks loads better then it did when it was purchased. I need to use the machine so it will need wait while I complete the houses pictures rails and Skirting boards. i have a long standing love for a De Walt radial arm Saw, and there are many article on this machine that say it dangerous and outdated etc… What they don’t tell you is 95% of the time it’s not set up correctly and that this machine is really a workshop powerhouse. I suppose that’s why De Walt called this radial arm Saw DW-1251 “Powershop”. Anyways, enough on that here is the before pictures and then an after picture.
