Hello all, I have been lurking and reading posts for a while but I have just joined the forum. I own an old B&D RAS model T1531. I have been looking for all over the net for a manual for this tool but to no avail. I found an LJ post regarding this saw and I am wondering if anyone was able to find a manual or any lit. on this saw. Thanks for any help.

You may not need that exact manual. The solid cast iron saws had most of the same basics, so any of the manuals for a 1500 series should have the info you might need. I did find this over at OWWM, it’s for a 1501 and not an owners manual but shows the tricks the saw will do. If you want some info on tuning and alignment I have a couple of PDF I could e mail you (PM me an address if you want them) that have a dead nuts tuning procedure to use. You might also ask this question (about the manual) over at the Dewalt forum. Some caution, it’s on the old Delphi software platform which was written way back when Pluto was still a planet so it takes some getting-used-to. But there are aome real Dewalt experts there, including the guy who wrote the articles I mentioned. Should you join the Dewalt forum, one piece of advuce that willcertainly come up is “buy the book”. They refer to the Wally Kunkel (AKA Mr. Sawdust) book about using/tuning Dewalts. It’s a good book and especially has some Dewalt history that I found interesting. But to me it’s somewhat overpriced, and the tips are not the majority of the book.

Fred, thanks for the reply. That sure looks my machine. I’ll take a look at the dewalt doc. to see if it answers my questions. That saw has been sitting in my barn for about 5-years. I am really ready to get it going. Thanks again.

Have your say...
