If it is on the recall list, then you have to send the motor to them for the $100.. leaving you with the skeleton to dispose of as you see fit :) I was lucky enough to get my ‘upgrade’ (new table, guard and handle) before they stopped offering that and went to the $100 only option.

As for doing dados, yes, but in a very limited way unless you want to get dangerous! Cross cutting dados on up to about a 1×12 will work, but if you want anything more, you start getting into the dangerous zone. A much safer way without a table saw would be to use a router. And while I guess it’s possible, I’ve never seen (or considered) using the RAS sa a drill press and think it would be very awkward using it that way.

As for the moulding head.. I’ve got one as well, and have considered using it on my RAS, but I can’t for the life of me figure out a safe way to do it.. if anyone has any tips or tricks for that, I would love to hear them!
