Delta Unisaw needs repair - $250 (Julian, NC)

I saw this today and thought that maybe someone out there may want to snatch this up. I have a table saw already but even if I didnt I'm probably not experienced enough to repair this machine to its full potential.

oh really? I would have thought it would be worth more. It does need a good scrubbing.

It has a three phase motor, most people would have to either buy a phase converter or a single phase 3 hp motor ( $300-$400 ) single phase 5 hp motor ( $650 ). Then a fence, and hope the top isn't pitted too badly, plus hope nothing else is missing, broke, or wore out, such as the bearings, belts, arbor, magnetic switch, table insert, etc. It's a ok deal for someone thats got the time maybe, but I don't know that it's a bargain.

Given that it needs a fence, worth from $150 to $250, and has a three phase motor, which for most home shops would require replacement, look at minimum $150,and that it needs considerable derusting, I would go with skymasters assessment. They are a good saw, but this one is overpriced.
