I just bought one of these saws at a flea market for $60 and it's in great shape. It looks hardly used at all but there was no table. I found this thread looking for the table dimensions and instead I've got a brand new table with the new guards on it's way for free.
Thanks a lot,

Is there a replacement arbor pin. For this saw or the arbor pin where the blades attacts or the bolt part?

I recently bought one of these radial arm saws in good shape for $125. That was before I learned there was a recall. The manufacture Emerson Tool Company will no longer give you a retrofit kit to make them safe as they say they no longer have them even though the individual parts are available on the Sears website.
Emerson Tool will give you $100 to take the motor and carriage off and return it to them to make the saw completely useless. I assume they are doing this because the parts in the retrofit kit cost more than the $100 they are offering.
I told them the individual retrofit parts are available on the Sears website and I was told they are not Sears and they have no parts. So there you have it; get $100 and throw away your saw or use your saw even though it is unsafe or spend $200 to buy the parts from Sears yourself.
Personally I am going to try and avoid buying Emerson Tool Products at all cost as they do not stand behind what they build and market.
