My radial arm saw doesn’t get much use now. By attaching a chuck to the arbor and mounting linear bearings or some other sliding table on the sawtable, the saw could be made to function like a slot mortiser. Have any of you done this? If so, would you mind sharing your design and recommending a source for the appropriate chuck and other hardware. My saw has a 5/8″ arbor on one end and a smaller arbor on the opposite end.
