The Sawsmith (or Saw Smith) Radial Arm Saw was an amazing tool from the 1950’s and 60’s that was developed by the folks who created the Shopsmith line of Woodworking tools. The purpose of this blog is to build a database on information on the Sawsmith, and to connect buyers and sellers of Sawsmith's and their accessories.
