Rockwell Unisaw???

I have been going back and forth on trying to find a good table saw and then this one popped up on Craigslist this afternoon. New 3 hp single phase motor, late 1970's model. Any thoughts on the machine and asking price would be greatly appreciated?

Thanks (Again)!

Nice old right tilt Uni. I'm not familiar with the Vega fence, but I believe it gets decent reviews. Mobile base is handy for small shops.

It is worth the asking price.

It's missing the motor cover.

I'd offer $850. and go from there.

Thumbs up

Oh yeah! Now we're talking! The Vega fence is really good....best micro adjuster on the market IMO. Built like a tank, power to spare. Right tilt wouldn't concern me much. Not a bad deal at all, but it can't hurt to ask what they'd take for it.

Bring a flashlight with you. Tilt the arbor all the way so you can look inside and make sure the cast iron trunions are not cracked or damaged.
